The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor has said that security operatives have arrested the suspected killers of worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.
Speaking at a meeting with editors and media executives in Abuja on Tuesday, Irabor said the suspects would be paraded after the conclusion of investigation.
According to him, the military has also neutralised many bandits terrorising the country.
He said, “Let me bring it to your notice that within the last time we met, there have been ignoble actions of men of the underworld that have impinged on our collective well-being, namely the unfortunate train attack, the attack on Kuje correctional centre as well as the attack on the presidential convoy.
“Also, the Owo incident which was intended to bring men and women of the armed forces to present them in a form and shape that make it to look as if the nation is on a siege. We have arrested those behind the dastardly act in Owo.”
Daily Trust reported how terrorists, on June 5, 2022, attacked St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State, and killed many worshippers.
