The attackers of the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo state, suspected to be Fulanis, have been arrested.

One of them could be heard saying: “They want to take them (suspects) to Akure. The youths are angry.”

Gunmen, last Sunday, invaded the church and murdered several worshippers, including women and children in Ondo.

The Police had confirmed that some of the assailants disguised as congregants and fired shots from AK-47 rifles.
