The Pan Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere, has described the attack on church worshippers at St Francis Catholic Church, as a direct attack on the Yoruba race.
This is according to Afenifere National Organising Secretary, Abagun Kole Omololu,
He was quoted by Vanguard as saying ”the massacre in Owo Catholic church is a direct attack on Yoruba land.
“It is directed at Gov Rotimi Akeredolu for his unflinching support for security in Yoruba land by championing the Amatekun security outfits, his stringent upholding of the open gracing law and for his ” big mouth” about Southern co-operation for equity and justice in Nigeria.
“We will not succumb to terrorist threat or attack, they will not be allowed to bring down our civilisation.
“We will hunt the killers down. Citizens should not take the law into their hands by attacking innocent northerners, only the terrorists, who are mostly foreign Fulani, should be fished out and finished off by the security forces.
“This attack is to course confusion and course war into our land. We should not play into their hands.
Omololu said that “This evil is condemned in the strongest term. We commensurate with the government and people of Ondo state, the catholic church, the Olowo of owo and the people of Owo.”
Meanwhile, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has promised that security operative in the state will hunt down the assailants
