Reveal identities of Owo church killers – MURIC tells Amotekun commander

1 Min Read

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has asked the Amotekun commander in Ondo State, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, to reveal the identities of those arrested in connection with the killing of 40 worshippers in a Catholic Church in Owo.

MURIC made the request in a statement signed by its Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, on Wednesday in response to last week’s comment purportedly made by Adeleye that the criminals had been apprehended.

“The Commander of the Amotekun security outfit in Ondo State, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, last week reported that those who killed 40 church worshippers in Owo, Ondo State, have been arrested.

“We hereby call on the Amotekun commander to reveal the identities of those arrested because Nigerians are eager to know them. We are eager to see the faces of those heartless human beings. Concealing their identities will not help matters because Nigerians have been on the tip-toes of expectation since seven days ago when their arrest was first announced.

“However, we are disturbed by reports that the police said they did not know about the arrest. We advise both Amotekun and the police to work in synergy. Only thus can we overcome our security challenges,” Akintola said.
