It is cruel and sacrilegious that innocent worshippers are attacked in the serene town of Owo, Ondo State and massacred in cold blood. This attack coming on a day the Church celebrates the Pentecost, the birthday of the Church.
The National Association of Catholic Lawyers once more condemns in absolute terms the reckless and abominable crime perpetrated by these monsters.
The brazenness of this attack at the centre of an important city like Owo suggests the breakdown or absence of a coordinated security architecture in Nigeria.
There’s now a total breakdown of law and order in the country as this is an attack too many. May the souls of these martrys rest in the Lord. Amen We condole the Catholic Bishop of Akure and the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria on the loss of lives and pray the good to console the families of the dead and grant quick recovery to the wounded.
We therefore call on the organs of the State to make haste to arrest and prosecute all the persons involved in this abominable act. We shall no longer accept excuses for the inactions of the Nigerian State.
