National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has visited Owo, in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State over Sunday’s terror attack at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street. The former Lagos State governor donated N50 million for the families of the victims of the terror attack and another N25 million to the Catholic Church.

Asiwaju Tinubu, who was received by Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu(SAN) said the perpetrators of the evil act meant more damage than Governor Akeredolu described.

He emphasized that the security situation in the country has to be enhanced to apprehend those involved in the dastardly act and assured the people that he would support the government to apprehend the perpetrators of the horrendous attack.

“God in His infinite mercy saved some people. Some people died as a result of this evil act. We pray that they will not die in vain.

However, Governor Akeredolu said a heinous crime of such level has never been experienced in the South-West before. He described yesterday as a black Sunday in Owo and noted that the pains of the terror attack are unbearable.

Also, speaking, the Olowo of Owo, Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye, called on the Federal Government to flush out all illegal occupants of the state forests, across the South-West. He thanked the former Lagos State Governor for coming to commiserate with Owo despite his busy schedule.
