Ondo Akeredolu Asks Nigerians To Ignore Religion And Vote Tinubu.

Ondo state Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has faulted federal government’s conclusion of ISWAP terrorist group carrying out last Sunday’s terrorist attack on St Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Owo local government area.

Speaking on Friday June 10, during an interaction with a Swiss-based Christian human rights Organisation, Christian Solidarity International (CSI), Akeredolu said he took the conclusion with a pinch of salt as ISWAP always take responsibility for any attack it carries out.

He described the attack as a crime against humanity, and also emphasized that the Southwest region had been a peaceful region before the tragic incident.

Akeredolu said;

”The statement is too hasty. I take their conclusion with a pinch of salt. ISWAP don’t hide their attacks. If they have done it, they would have owned up. We are yet to know their identity and our security people are still on their trail.
“We are helping the victims of the attack. Including those who lost their loved ones and those who are in the hospitals. We have also have people who have offered the state government some assistance. Some people have donated to the Catholic.”

On State police, the Governor said;

“A single police command can not guarantee safety in this country. We must have state police now. Amotekun suffers a lot of limitation in getting all the equipment needed to fight these criminals.”
