Owo Attack: Buhari, Govs Must Live Up To Oaths Of Securing Nigerians – Ooni

News Update
Ooni of Ife, Oba Ogunwusi Adeyeye (Ojaja II).


Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has said it is high time all those elected into executive office begin to live up to their oaths of securing Nigerians and ensuring the safety of citizens. 

The Arole Oduduwa in his statement on Monday, regarding the barbaric attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa, Ondo State, described the incident as a gruesome massacre dastardly targeted at turning Yorubaland to a war zone.

He said the Yoruba people have the capacity to defend themselves even though they are peace loving and as such urged the leaders to play their role appropriately to forestall a degeneration into violence.

“The six governors across the South West region and their brothers nationwide as well as the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, must live up to their oaths of securing Nigerians and ensuring safety for the citizenry,” the Monarch stated.

Oba Ogunwusi decried the vulnerability of Nigerians especially the poor who he said are often victims of violent attacks.

He warned that there have been reports suggesting that some criminals are currently working to invade and wreck havoc in Yorubaland like the one that just happened in Owo, noting that these “bloodsucking enemies of God” have vowed to destabilise the Southwest region.

The Ooni was of the opinion that when calamities like that which befell Owo, happen without a single trace, then, the interpretation is that the intelligence unit of the country’s security architecture is probably faulty or completely missing.

He urged the leaders to wake up to their responsibilities, with a major emphasis on the security of Nigerian lives and properties.

Ooni Ogunwusi, however, commiserated with the Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye III, the entire Owo kingdom, the government and people of Ondo State, as well as the priest and parishioners of St. Francis Catholic Church.
