Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has condemned the barbaric attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa, Owo, Ondo State on Sunday

He described it as a gruesome massacre, dastardly targeted at turning Yorubaland to a war zone, saying Yoruba people have the capacity to defend themselves even though the are peace loving.

In a statement by his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, Ooni Ogunwusi who warned against plan by a group bloodsucking enemies of God who had vowed to destabilise the Southwest region decried the vulnerability of Nigerians especially the poor who he said are often victims of violent attacks.

He stated that Sunday 6th of June made it exactly one year when an invading gang of killer herdsmen killed at least over 20 people in Igangan, Ibarapa North local government of Oyo State on Saturday night, where several houses, the palace of the Asigangan and a popular petroleum station were burnt in the attack when people were asleep.

Ooni explained that there have been reports that some criminals are currently working to invade and wreck havoc in the Yorubaland like the one that just happened in Owo yesterday.

He stressed further that When calamities like this befall the people, without a single trace, the interpretation is that the intelligence unit of the country’s security architecture is probably faulty or completely missing.

He warned that the descendants of Oduduwa cannot be overrun in their own home as they are prepared and ready to defend themselves against external invaders.

“Rather than discouraging us, this will rather strengthen us especially in our resolve to deploy manpower, resources and technology towards the protection of lives and properties.

He called on the six governors across the south west region and their brothers nationwide as well as the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, to live up to their oaths of securing Nigerians and ensuring safety for the citizenry.

The Ooni however commiserated with the Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye III, the entire Owo kingdom,
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Ondo State Government, the people of Owo, the Priest and parishioners of St. Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa, Owo, families of all the victims, and the entire people of Ondo State over the tragic and senseless killings.
