OWO MASS MURDER, POLICE CLEAR AIR ON NAB OF CULPRITS
The Ondo State Police command has denied knowledge of the arrest of the suspected perpetrators of the last Sunday attack on St Francis Catholic Church, Owo where many people were killed and some severely injured.
Although there are speculations that some of the suspected perpetrators of the attack were arrested by local vigilantes in Owo but the police dispelled the speculations.
In a video which has gone viral on the social media, the Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Ogunoye was seen speaking to his subjects and assured that the perpetrators would be brought to book.
The news of the rumoured arrest filtered in and residents who have been mourning the death of their loved ones to the flagitious crime surround the palace to catch a glimpse of bandits at the palace.
Addressing the crowd in owo dialect, oba ogunoye asked them to remain calm, saying he heard the same unconfirmed news just like the residents.
Our correspondent however contacted the Police Public Relations, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami to confirm the arrest and she merely responded that she is not aware.
A source within the palace of Olowo however told our correspondent at the time of filling this information that the information was only a rumour as there was nothing of such.
