Ondo Killing: ‘My prayer is that someday, life will start to have value in Nigeria’ – Obi Cubana mourns


Obinna “Obi” Iyiegbu, commonly known as Obi Cubana, a Nigerian entrepreneur and businessman who chairs the Cubana Group has also joined his voice to that of millions of other Nigerians to cry out over the recent killing of Catholic Church worshippers in Ondo State.

Recall that on Sunday, June 5, many worshippers were been feared dead with several injured after suspected terrorists attacked St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, the headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

An eyewitness said “the herdsmen invaded the church during the Mass celebration at the Catholic Church in OWO. They killed all the people and kidnapped the priest! The videos are gory. The whole church filled with dead bodies and blood everywhere. They then bombed the premises after the massacre.”

On his part, Obi Cubana recalled how they were shielded from seeing a dead around 1984, but same can’t be said of today’s Nigeria.He also prayed for God to comfort the families of the fallen victims of the bloody attack.

He wrote: “Good morning my fellow Nigerians!
Today, is a very sad day to write. My prayer is that God will heal our nation, and restore peace on our land, amen. My prayer is that someday, life will start to have value once more, amen. I remember as a kid, sometime around 1984, while i was in primary 4 in Central Primary School Oba. Around 10am, almost immediately after morning assembly, the school bells rang and we were all assembled again, and were told the school had been shutdown for the week, and that we would use the bush track to all go home. We learnt later that a fuel tanker crushed a palmwine tapper on his bicycle, on his way home from Afor Oba market after selling his palmwine. Now, the school didn’t want any of us pupils, to see the accident scene, so they protected us from seeing what dead body looked like. Can same ever be, again? God help us!!! May God comfort the families of the victims, and all others that may have had similar unfortunate incidents. May God protect us all, amen “
