‘We Have Failed’ — Akeredolu Sobs at Burial Mass for Victims of Catholic Church Attack

Rotimi Akeredolu, the Executive Governor of Ondo State, has said that his government and the federal government of Nigeria failed to protect the victims of the Catholic Church attack in Ondo State.

He said this while giving an address at the requiem Mass for the soul of those killed in the attack on St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Owo.

“I am here to accept our failure on security. We have failed. We have failed to defend these people, not because we are not trying, but because the forces on the other side are evil and have support,” the governor said as he sobbed.

“A few times, these forces of evil will triumph over us, but that triumph cannot be forever. It will not be forever.”

The governor said 40 people were killed in the attack, and that 70 were still in the hospital.

“Forty people were killed in the attack. We will be burying 22 of them today. The rest have been buried by their families because they wanted closure. However, there are still over 70 persons receiving treatment in the hospital,” he said
