The All Progressives Congress National Leader and presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, has payed a condolence visit to Ondo State on Monday, over the Owo church attack.

Speaking at the Palace of Olowo, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye during the visit, Tinubu condemned the violent attack on innocent worshippers, and promised to work with the governor of Ondo State Rotimi Akeredolu, to bring succour to the victims.

He described the attack as an evil that must be defeated, as there is no place for such act in the country.

Gunmen had invaded St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo on Sunday leading to the death of over 30 people who were mostly children and women.

Before his visit the church for the spot assessment, Tinubu pledged N50million to the victims and another N25million to the Owo Catholic Church.

Expressing his sadness over the tragic incident, Tinubu noted that the South-West had never witnessed such an attack of such magnitude saying it was horrendous, as he also prayed that such terrible incident would not occur again in the state.

He further called on the federal and state governments to work together to strengthen the security around the country, and urged the security agencies in the state to fish out the perpetrators of the dastardly act.

“I want to call on the security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of the attack.”

On his part, Governor Akeredolu expressed gratitude to Tinubu for the visit, and promised to either bring the assailants down to the state for justice or take justice to them.

“he is a worthy leader by leaving his political campaign to visit Owo.”

Tinubu was accompanied by the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu; a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and other chieftains of the party.
