Some women in Ondo State on Wednesday performed a ritual to evoke punishment and curse on the perpetrators of Owo killings.
Recall that gunmen had stormed Saint Francis Catholic Church last Sunday in Owo, headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State, and killed about 50 worshippers.
In their traditional efforts to seek punishment on the perpetrators, the women who had earlier protested the ugly incident, rained curses on the assailants.
Led by the Iyaloja of the Owo, Chief Mrs Iwaloye, who condemned the gruesome killing, the women marched through major streets in the town and called for the arrest of the gunmen as well as enhanced security of lives in the town.
During the protest, the women visited the seven traditional sites in the town where they performed rituals and placed curses on the attackers.
The women also visited the Church where the worshippers were killed to commiserate with the priest, stressing that the perpetrators will not go unpunished for defiling God’s house.
While addressing the women at his palace, the Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Ogunoye, appealed to his people not to vent their anger on innocent people as he assured that measures have been taken to ensure that the perpetrators were arrested.
