Flags are to fly at half-mast in all public buildings, facilities, and official residences in Ondo state for seven days.
As Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu directed, this is in honour of the victims of the Sunday Owo terror attack.
Akeredolu’s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde announced this on Monday in Akure.
”In honour of the victims of this unfortunate attack, I hereby direct that all flags be flown at half-mast for seven days, starting from Monday to June 12.
”It is a collective loss to the people of our dear state. The attack on innocent worshippers at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo is a deliberate and calculated assault on the people of the state.
”Those who unleashed this unprovoked terror attack on our people have tested our collective resolves.
”We will not be deterred in responding appropriately to this dastardly act,” he said.
