The paramount king of Owo, Ondo State, the Olijebu of Ijebu-Owo, Oba Kofoworola Oladoyinbo Ojomo has lashed out at the federal government over the ongoing terror attacks across the country.
Earlier this month, Saint Francis Catholic Church in Owo was attacked by unknown assailants who opened fire on the church during a Sunday afternoon service. The monarch criticized the government’s inability to put a stop to the continuous attacks. According to him, the “government does not value people’s security, as seen by gunmen’s audacity in committing mindless attacks on helpless citizens.”

“We have less than 300 policemen to police activities here in Owo. The security of our people does not mean anything to the present administration. They are just waiting for the administration to end without any solution insight.
“They are not giving enough encouragement to those at the state level to do what they should be doing.
“When criminals succeed with the first attack without apprehending them, the next attack will be bigger. So we have to find ways that it will not repeat itself again. If it is not for the initiative of our Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, situation in this place could have been worse than this. But it seems this is a direct attack to intimidate us.”
