Peter Obi, a Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, has responded to the brutal murder of innocent attendees at the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo state.

On Sunday, June 5, 2022, a group of suspected terrorists infiltrated a church 200 metres from the Palace of Olowo of Owo.

According to reports, approximately 25 worshippers have been confirmed dead, while many others are currently seeking treatment for gunshot wounds.

The former governor of Anambra state stated that the death validated his belief that Nigeria is rapidly becoming a failed nation.

Peter Obi stated this in a series of tweets published on Sunday to his official Twitter Page.

He asked every Nigerian to unite and build a powerful force in order to rescue the nation from the oncoming cliff.

Obi remarked, “Today’s events in Owo reinforce my belief that our nation is rapidly becoming a failed state. Everyone must now work together to save our nation from the existential crisis it faces today.”

Thus, the presidential candidate urged the Ondo State Government and Federal Government to spare no effort in bringing the culprits of the heinous act to justice.

“I have compassion for the families of the victims, the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo state, the people of Ondo State, and the government of Ondo State. I urge the Federal Government and Ondo State Government to do everything in their power to ensure that those responsible for the heinous act are brought to justice. -PO.”

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president of Nigeria stated his hope that darkness would never triumph in the country.

Buhari also expressed his sorrow and condolences to the families, the Catholic Church, the government, and the people of Ondo state, and he ordered all emergency services to provide aid to the injured.
