The Owo attack in which church worshippers were murdered at St Francis Catholic Church, has been assessed as a direct attack on Yoruba race.
The Pan Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere, gave the view through the National organising secretary, Abagun Kole Omololu.
Omololu said, “It is directed at Gov Rotimi Akeredolu for his unfliching support for security in Yoruba land by championing the Amotekun security outfits, his stringent upholding of the open gracing law and for his ” big mouth” about Southern co-operation for equity and justice in Nigeria.
“We will not succumb into terrorist threat or attack, they will not be allowed to bring down our civilisation.
“We will hunt the killers down. Citizen should not take laws into their hands by attacking innocent northerners, only the terrorists, who are mostly foreign Fulani, should be fished out and finish off by the security forces.
“This attack is to cause confusion and course war into our land. We should not play into their hands.
Omololu said that “This evil is condemned in the strongest term. We commiserate with the government and people of Ondo state, the catholic church, the Olowo of Owo and the people of Owo.
