The Daily Post newspaper has reported that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has confirmed the arrest of five suspects in connection with the mass murder of worshippers at Saint Francis Catholic Church, Owo, in the state on June 5. 

Those arrested include the four terrorists and the man who lodged them preparatory to the attack. 

The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, had on Tuesday in Abuja, disclosed the arrests, noting that it took the collaborative efforts of all the security agencies.

Gen. Irabor also said that the suspects are members of the Islamic State of West Africa (ISWAP), confirming what the federal government had said a few days after the incident. 

He said:

“We have recovered the last vehicle they used for that operation and we made some arrests and we have also recovered some vital things which we are working on.”

The attack, which took place on a Sunday while worship service was going on in the church, led to the death of no fewer than 50 persons, including young and aged men and women, and children.

The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, confirmed the arrest of the suspects involved in the massacre to the leadership of the state chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), led by the council’s Chairman, Prince Leke Adegbite, who visited him in his office in Akure, the State capital. 

His confirmation came not long after the CDS, General Lucky Irabor, had announced the arrests. 

The governor, however, gave further details about the arrests. He disclosed that the owner of the house where the attackers lodged before the attack was among those arrested. 

He said:

“Now that the military has announced it, I can tell you that five of them have been arrested now.

“The security men are still on the trail of the rest. The home where they lodged in Owo and the person that accommodated them before the attack, has also been arrested.”

Meanwhile, the governor also disclosed that information at his disposal indicates that some Ebira indigenes are now engaging in kidnappings in the state. 

He warned them to desist from involvement in such a heinous crime.
