Ondo Church Attackers Should Be Punished, Says CAN


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned what it described as an unwarranted attack on Sunday at the St. Francis Catholic Church on Owa-luwa Street in Owo, which resulted in the deaths of several innocent worshippers.

Dr. Samson Ayokunle, the CAN President, issued a statement on Sunday urging security authorities to apprehend the perpetrators of the heinous crime as soon as possible.

"This is tragic, wrong, condemnable, awful, unacceptably intolerable, and diabolical." This unjustified attack and assault on a place of worship has no reason. This is unadulterated persecution.

"These folks are demonised, possessed, and not working for the country's good." In the name of Jesus, may God descend heavily on them and fight them from their roots," Ayokunle stated in a statement signed on his behalf by his spokesman, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji.

He also restated CAN's call for a complete revamp of the security architecture, and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop recycling terrorists and criminals under the guise of a de-radicalization programme.

"How come the criminalities are always on the rise and nothing is safe again?" he said, if the programme isn't counterproductive.

This insecurity threat has gotten out of hand and is causing embarrassment. Criminals operate with impunity across the country, and our administration appears to be so preoccupied with the 2023 general election that it has no time for the country's ongoing massacres.

"What kind of legacy is the government and those in charge of our security architecture leaving for future generations?" We're hoping that the government and security services can correct the situation before it's too late.

"What attempts are being made to arrest this undesirable situation if the Federal government is not interested in the State Police?" We demand that state governors meet with President Obama to find a long-term solution to the killings. Issuing public comments of condemnation and what appear to be meaningless threats does not appear to be an option."

He expressed his condolences to the bereaved, Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye, Olowo of Owo, the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN), and the Ondo State Government.
