Just in: Owo attack:  Amotekun nabs suspected attackers of Catholic church


News reaching this medium indicated that the Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun Corps says it has arrested  some suspects in connection with the terrorist attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo.

The suspected gunmen had invaded the church on June 5 during mass, killing no fewer than 40 people and injuring many other worshippers in the process.

The state Commander of Amotekun, Adetunji Adeleye, on Thursday, said some suspects involved in the dastardly act  had been nabbed.

Not much details were released concerning the arrest as he did not give the actual figure of the suspects arrested, and how they were nabbed.

Adeleye however expressed the hope that all the attackers of the worship centre would be arrested.

Recall the remains of the victims were buried about two weeks ago, where the governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu and his wife, Betty and relatives of deceased fought back tears during the funeral service.

The governor had vowed that the perpetrators would be brought to book.
