Ondo Church attack- St Francis Catholic Church, Owo

The Federal Government has said the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters are responsible for the attack on St Francis Catholic church in Owo, Ondo State, adding the government had been able to locate the perpetrators of the Owo attack and zeroed in on the terrorist group.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed this Thursday while briefing State House reporters after a meeting of the National Security Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

KEMI FILANI NEWS recalls that many worshippers were killed with several injured after suspected terrorists blew up the church during service.

Aregbesola alongside Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman, said security agencies had been directed to go after the perpetrators of the act and bring them to justice.

According to the minister, the terrorist group was out to pitch Nigerians against one another and make it appear as ethno-religious war.

He said there was no ethnic agenda in the attack, urging Nigerians to unite and defeat the terrorists.
