Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had previously ordered that all flags in the state be flown at half-staff for seven days in honour of the terror attack victims.

Meanwhile, Nobel laureate and renowned playwright Prof. Wole Soyinka claims that the attack on the Owo St Francis Catholic Church was aimed at Governor Rotimi Akeredolu for demonstrating leadership in the fight for internal liberation.

Soyinka was in Akure over the weekend to pay his condolences to the governor following the terrorist attack.

“Akeredolu was targeted, there is no doubt about that,” he claims. It wasn’t an accident, and it’s giving the rest of us a massage.
