Owo massacre: Another Victim dies in Hospital

The ondo state government on Wednesday said one of the victims receiving treatment at the hospital following the attack on church worshippers in Owo town is dead.

A new Commissioner for information and orientation, Mrs Bamidele Ademola-Olateju disclosed this while briefing government house correspondents in Akure, the ondo state capital after the end of the state council meeting.

Mrs Bamidele Ademola-Olateju regretted that one more death has been recorded as a result of the June 5 terror attack on St Francis Catholic Church, Owo.

She said the number of fatalities is now 41 while 17 persons were still being hospitalised.

While commiserating with the bereaved families and praying for speedy recovery of those still in the hospital, the Commissioner restated the State Government’s commitment to having a memorial site built in honour of all the victims.
