The Chief of Defence Staff, Lucky Irabor, has announced that the perpetrators of the attack on the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, have been arrested.
Irabor made this announcement on Tuesday, August 9 in Abuja during a meeting with editors and media executives.
He stated that the suspects of the Owo attack would be paraded following the conclusion of the probe.
In his words:
“Within the last time we met, we have recorded remarkable achievement. Let me bring it to your notice that within the same period, 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 center as well as what has been reported in the past the attack on the presidential convoy.“
Also, the Owo incident which was intended to bring man 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.
“It was my intention to present them to the public, but because of the investigation still going on, I had to change my mind. I will like to say that in due course, the world will see them and others who are behind other daring attacks in the country.”
