The Saint Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, has reopened for services on Easter Sunday, ten months after a deadly attack left over Fourty worshippers dead and several others injured.
During the attack, the assailants disguised themselves as worshippers, maiming both old and young worshippers.
Ten months after the incident, worshippers filled the building to celebrate the 2023 Easter.
At the reopening, the Catholic Bishop of Ondo Diocese, the Most Revered, Jude Arogundade, called on the Federal Government to be alive to the responsibility of protecting the lives and properties of the citizens.
The Cleric said the government must make sure those who carried out the evil that took place in the church and those carrying out the evils that were going on in the country were brought to book and punished accordingly.
