Video: Ondo governor Akeredolu in Tears after the Owo Church Massacre
Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Sunday shed tears at the scene of a deadly attack by terrorists in the state. The terrorists earlier in the day attacked St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo town, the governor’s hometown, killing dozens of worshippers.
Akeredolu, who was in Abuja when the incident occurred, immediately left for his hometown to visit the scene of the tragic incident.
The governor earlier vowed that his government would “hunt down” the killers and “make them pay”.
In a series of tweets on his official Twitter handle following his visit to to the crime scene, Akeredolu said, “I was at the scene of the terror attack on innocent worshipers at St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, today. I also visited the hospitals where survivors of the attack are receiving medical attention.
“The attack was the most dastardly act that could happen in any society.
“What happened today is tragic. No better way to qualify it. It is the most tragic event! Horrific! What we have seen in America is a child play to what has happened here. That it happened in a church, to say the least, is most condemnable. I feel terribly sad.
