President Buhari, while commiserating with the families of Sunday, Owo Catholic church attack victims, and the government of Ondo state, has said, eternal sorrows await the gunmen that perpetrated such a dastardly act of killing worshippers right inside the sanctuary; and that “darkness will never overcome light” in Nigeria.
The press statement reads:
PRESIDENT BUHARI MOURNS THE DEAD, CONDOLES WITH ONDO STATE GOVT AND PEOPLE
President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the heinous killing of worshippers Sunday at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo Kingdom, in Ondo State.
The President says only fiends from the nether region could have conceived and carried out such dastardly act, adding that eternal sorrow awaits them both on earth here, and ultimately in the hereafter.
President Buhari mourns the dead, condoles with their families, the Catholic Church, and the Government of Ondo State, charging emergency agencies to swing into action, and bring succor to the wounded.
“No matter what, this country shall never give in to evil and wicked people, and darkness will never overcome light. Nigeria will eventually win,” the President says.
