‘This Country Shall Never Give In To Evil, Wicked People’ President Buhari Mourns Victims Of Ondo Church

President-Muhammadu-Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the heinous killing of worshippers Sunday at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-Oluwa Street, Owo Kingdom, in Ondo State.

The president in a condolence message by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity vowed that the country will never give in to evil and wicked people, and darkness will never overcome the light.

The President says only fiends from the nether region could have conceived and carried out such dastardly act, adding that eternal sorrow awaits them both on earth here, and ultimately in the hereafter.

President Buhari mourns the dead, and condoles with their families, the Catholic Church, and the Government of Ondo State, charging emergency agencies to swing into action and bring succour to the wounded.

“No matter what, this country shall never give in to evil and wicked people, and darkness will never overcome the light. Nigeria will eventually win,” the President said.

Recall that suspected terrorists are said to have blown up the church. Emerging reports suggest that many worshippers have died and several others have been left injured following the explosion at the church which is situated close to the palace of the Olowo of Owo

Reacting to the development, Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, expressed deep sadness over what he calls an unprovoked attack and killing of innocent people of Owo.

Governor Akeredolu said the vile and satanic attack is a calculated assault on the peace-loving people of the Owo Kingdom who have enjoyed relative peace over the years.

“It is a black Sunday in Owo. Our hearts are heavy. Our peace and tranquillity have been attacked by the enemies of the people. This is a personal loss, an attack on our dear state.

“I have spoken to the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Ondo, Most Reverend Jude Arogundade, who is presently on his way to Owo. Similarly, I have had to cut short my party’s national assignment in Abuja and visit Owo immediately.

“This is an unexpected development. I am shocked, to say the least. Nevertheless, we shall commit every available resource to hunt down these assailants and make them pay. We shall never bow to the machinations of heartless elements in our resolves to rid our state of criminals.

“I commiserate with my people in Owo, particularly families of the those who lost their lives to this ugly and unfortunate attack. I extend my condolences to Olowo of Owo, Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye as well as the Catholic Church,” Akeredolu stated.

The governor urged the people to remain calm and vigilant. Do not take laws into your hands, adding that he has spoken to the heads of the security agencies.

Akeredolu further stated that he has equally been assured that security operatives would be deployed to monitor and restore normalcy to the Owo kingdom.

As of the time of filing this report, the security operatives were yet to give a detailed statement regarding the development.
