The Aare-Ona-Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has said the attack on worshippers at St Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State, was a threat to the existence of Nigeria as a nation.
Adams spoke in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr Kehinde Aderemi.
He described the incident as ungodly and capable of threatening the foundation and existence of Nigeria.
The Yoruba generalissimo said the perpetrators would not escape the wrath of God for what they did in the church.
His words: “Cases of Boko Haram and bandits and other criminal elements always attacking churches and mosques have simply shown the failures of the government. It has also exposed the crass incompetence of Nigeria’s leaders and the security apparatus.
“Reports at my disposal showed clearly that the attackers disguised as worshippers, planted an explosive device within the church premises and carried out their evil attack on innocent worshippers.
“The Federal Government must rise to its responsibility, begin thorough investigation into the attack and also bring the perpetrators of this gory incident to book.”
Recall that over 30 worshippers reportedly died in the attack with several others receiving treatment in the hospital.
