St Francis Catholic Church at Owa-luwa Street in Owo Local Government Area of ​​Ondo State is set to conduct a mass burial for the victims of the terrorist attack on the Sunday church.
During the Pentecost service on Sunday, terrorists invaded the church killing dozens of worshippers, while several others were injured.





One of the videos of the incident obtained by SaharaReporters shows that children were also killed in the attack.
The attack had drawn sympathy from different sections of society, both in Nigeria and abroad, with many urging the country’s security apparatus to be active in protecting lives and property.
On Monday, the church said it was ready to carry out a mass burial of the victims but promised to hand over the bodies to families who wanted to claim them.
Church catechist Donatus Awololo said the victims were rushed to different hospitals, including Federal Medical Center Owo, St Louis Catholic Hospital and some private hospitals.
He was grateful to God that he too survived the attack.
Meanwhile, a source in the area informed SaharaReporters that there was palpable fear in the community as parents refused to release their children/wards to go to school. He said that by next week, university activities could resume in the region.
The source, who has lost all connection with the attack, said church activities have also been suspended for the time being, especially as the attackers were targeting a large cathedral in the area.
