Owo church massacre: Akeredolu extends mourning period

Ondo State governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has extended the mourning period in the State to Wednesday.

This was contained in a statement by Mr Richard Olatunde, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor in Akure.

Olatunde said that the extension was sequel to the resolution of the Southwest Governors’ Forum to observe a three-day mourning period, starting from Monday to Wednesday across all the Southwest States.

It  reports that on June 5, terrorists attacked St. Francis Catholic Church, Owaluwa Street, Owo, during church service.

Olatunde said, “Governor Akeredolu has also directed that all flags in the state must be flown at half-mast for the three days period.

“Recall that the governor had directed that all flags in the state be flown at half-mast for seven days from Monday to Sunday.

“Gov. Akeredolu appreciated the governors in the Southwest for the massive love and cooperation shown since the horrendous attack in Owo.”
