President Buhari Mourns Brutally Murdered Ondo Catholic Worshippers

By Damilare Adeleye

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the heinous killing of worshippers on Sunday at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo Kingdom, in Ondo State.

The President who said only fiends from the nether region could have conceived and carried out such dastardly act, added that eternal sorrow awaits the perpetrators both on earth here, and ultimately in the hereafter.

Buhari mourned the dead and condoled with their families, the Catholic Church, and the Government of Ondo State, charging emergency agencies to swing into action, and bring succor to the wounded.

He was quoted saying, “No matter what, this country shall never give in to evil and wicked people, and darkness will never overcome light. Nigeria will eventually win.”

This was contained in a statement by the Media aide to President, Femi Adesina.

Suspected gunmen had earlier been reported to have invaded the Owo Catholic Church and killed no fewer than 50 worshipers while several others were injured.
