The Sarkin Fulani of Lagos and Chairman Council of Fulani Chiefs, in the South-West geo-political zone of Nigeria, His Highness, Alhaji (Dr) Mohammed Abubakar Bambado ll, has on behalf of his council members and kinsmen condemned the killings of some worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo,Ondo State by gunmen on Sunday during Church service.
The monarch’s condemnation of the dastardly act was contained in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Lagos.
He stated that “this evil attack on peace loving people of Owo Kingdom, who have enjoyed relative peace over the years, was condemnable in the real sense of the word.”
Alhaji Bakindo therefore commiserated with the families of those who lost their loved ones in the ugly and unfortunate attack, just as he also extended his condolences to the Olowo of Owo, Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye, the Catholic Church, and as well His Excellency, the executive governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, while wishing the injured a quick recovery.
The royal father urged security operatives to commit all available resources at their disposal to hunt down the assailants and make them face the law, even as he appealed to the public to allow the relevant security agents to do their work before jumping into any erroneous conclusion that can jeopardise their operations towards fishing out the perpetrators to face the music.
He said, “At this period of political activities towards the election year of 2023, all hands should be on deck collectively to work on issues that would unite us the more and stay clear of any act that can cause undue tension or aggravate imaginary crises.”
