The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Owo Local Government Area, has held a prayer session in Owo, Ondo State, following the bloody attack on the St Francis Catholic Church in the town.
Channels TV reported that they gathered at the church in the early hours of Monday for the prayer session and held a protest in the area.
Speaking after the prayer session, the CAN Chairman in Owo council, Revd. Joshua Oladapo expressed sadness over what he described as an “evil” occurrence.
He said hospitals in the area are grappling with treating wounded persons, saying the casualty figures are much. The cleric called on the leaders across the country and the international community to wade into the attacks on churches.
“This is a clarion call, to not only the Nigeria leaders but the international community, that these incessant attacks, most especially the Christian body, the peaceful communities in our nation, should not continue,” he said.
“We want the international community to wade in before it goes out of hand,” the CAN leader added.
