Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, the Governor of Ondo State, has announced a seven-day mourning in the state following the attack on Saint Francis Catholic Church in Owo.
Akeredolu ordered all public buildings, facilities, and official residences in the State to fly flags at half-mast for seven days in honor of the victims of the Sunday attack.
He said the attack on the church’s innocent worshipers was a planned and calculated strike on the people of the State.
Akeredolu added that those who unleashed the unprovoked terror attack on the people have tested the collective resolves of everyone.
According to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, the Governor said, “We will not be deterred in responding appropriately to this dastardly act.
“In honor of the victims of this unfortunate attack, I hereby direct that all flags be flown at half-mast for seven days, starting from today, Monday, June 6, to Sunday, June 12, 2022.
“It is a collective loss to the people of our dear State.”
