Bishop of the Ondo Diocese, Most Rev Bishop Jude Arogundade, has said all is set for the reopening of the St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, in Owo Local Government Area, which was attacked by gunmen on June 5, 2022.
A total of 41 persons, including children were killed and 69 others injured in the terror attack.
The cleric made this known while speaking at this year’s Chrism mass as part of activities to mark Easter celebration.
Arogundade noted that the church has been locked since the attack, due to security reasons.
“Since the unfortunate incident that befell our members at the saint Francis Cathedral in Owo on June 5 2022, the church has been closed down for security reasons and as a mark of respect for our fallen brothers and sisters,” he said.
“The church shall be opened again for Easter Sunday. The government of Ondo state is as well planning to commemorate the one year anniversary of the massacre in honor of our fallen heroes.”
