Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state says the attackers of the St. Francis Catholic Church Owo have been arrested as announced by the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor.

Five suspects were arrested including the owner of the house in Owo where the attackers stayed before the terrorist attack on June 5, 2022.

The statement tweeted by the Governor reads in part;

I am happy to announce that we have confirmed the arrest of the attackers of St Francis Catholic Church, Owo. The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor has also announced it. We have known for a while but we needed not to come out with it because more works are still ongoing.

Five of the attackers have been arrested, including the owner of the house in Owo where the attackers stayed before the June 5 attack, while the security operatives are still on the trail of some of them.

We did not spare a moment in trailing the terrorists since the horrendous attacks on innocent worshippers. We will continue to give the necessary supports to our security agencies towards protecting the lives and property in the State.
