Ondo State’s governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, says five suspected terr@rists who att@cked St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo on June 5, 2022 have been arrested.
The Governor said this on Tuesday, August 9, few hours after the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, announced the arrest of those behind the att@ck in Abuja.
Speaking with newsmen, the governor said: ”Now that the military has announced it, I can tell you that five of them have been arrested now. They are still on the trail of the rest. The home where they lodged in Owo and the person who lodged them before the att@ck, have also been arrested.
We did not spare a moment. I am happy that the Chief of Defence Staff has announced it. We have known for a while but we needed not to come out with it because more works are still ongoing. I can confirm that this arrest has been made. And they are still on the trail of some of them.”
