Men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed “Amotekun Corps” have nabbed some suspects linked to the terror attack on St Francis Catholic Church in the Owo area of the state.

It would be recalled that on June 5, suspected terrorists attacked the church during a service and shot at worshippers after detonating explosives. Over 40 persons were confirmed dead, and many others injured.

On Thursday, the state Commander of the Ondo State Amotekun, Adetunji Adeleye confirmed the arrest of some suspects linked to the attack.

Adeleye disclosed that weapons and vehicles were recovered in the process of their apprehension. He, however, did not disclose the actual number of suspects nabbed in connection with the crime.

“We have arrested a number of those who perpetrated evil at the St Francis Catholic Church in Owo,” he said.

“We have also recovered the vehicle they used last after the deadly operation. We have also recovered some of their weapons.

“They came on motorcycles and hijacked a Golf vehicle. We have successfully recovered the vehicle and will soon arrest all the killers.”
