Following an earlier confirmation by the Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, Gen. Lucky Irabor, of the arrest of two suspects in the attack in Owo, Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has confirmed the arrest of the attackers of St Francis Catholic Church.
The Governor confirmed the arrest shortly after the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor made the announcement in Abuja.
Governor Akeredolu who spoke while playing host to the leadership of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Ondo state further disclosed that the owner of the house where the attackers stayed before the June 5 attack in Owo has also been arrested.
He noted that government did not spare a moment in trailing the terrorists since the horrendous attacks on innocent worshipers at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owaluwa, Owo.
The Governor however called on leaders of the Ebira community in the state to warn their young ones not to copy the bad venture of kidnapping.
The Akeredolu said recent reports from victims of kidnap in the state have established that some Ebira indigenes are now involved in the unwholesome acts.
