Minority Reps Condemn Owo Terrorist Attack
…Tasks President Buhari to Apprehend Killers, Adopt More Proactive Security Measures
The Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives condemns in strong terms, the gruesome killing of over 50 innocent Nigerians worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State on Sunday by suspected terrorists.
Our Caucus is deeply pained that innocent Nigerians have continued to be massacred by terrorists because of the incompetence and manifest lack of capacity by the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration to confront terrorism and secure our nation.
This attack is yet another sad commentary on the abysmal failure of the Buhari-led APC administration to decisively confront terrorists in their apparently organized attacks on our nation; a situation that has emboldened these outlaws to continue to ravage our nation and murder our citizens with reckless abandon.
The Minority Caucus urges President Muhammadu Buhari to end his administration’s lethargic approach to security, review its strategies and adopt more proactive measures to tackle terrorism and curb the worsening insecurity in Nigeria.
President Buhari must also take firm steps to secure the release of Nigerians languishing in abductor’s dens, including kidnapped students of various institutions and victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train terrorist attack.
Our caucus stands with the Government and people of Ondo State at this moment of grief. We deeply commiserate with the families of the victims of the attack as we call on the security forces to ensure that the perpetrators do not get away with this gruesome crime against our citizens.
Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu
Minority Leader of the House of Representatives
