President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his condolences to the families of those who were killed in a Catholic Church in Owo on Sunday.
The attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo left no fewer than 28 people killed, including women and children, and many others injured.
The President, speaking through his media aide, Femi Adesina, also condemned the killings, referring to the killers as demons.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the heinous killing of worshippers Sunday at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo Kingdom, in Ondo state,” the statement reads.
“The president says only fiends from the nether region could have conceived and carried out such a dastardly act, adding that eternal sorrow awaits them both on earth here, and ultimately in the hereafter.
“President Buhari mourns the dead, condoles 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.
“No matter what, this country shall never give in to evil and wicked people, and darkness will never overcome light. Nigeria will eventually win.”
