The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has directed all public buildings, facilities, and official residences to fly the Nigerian flag at half-mast for seven days in honour of the victims of the Owo terror attack on Sunday.

This was made known by Richard Olatunde, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor on Monday.

Governor Akeredolu said the attack on innocent worshipers at Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo was a deliberate and calculated assault on the people of the state. 

”Those who unleashed this unprovoked terror attack on our people have tested our collective resolves. We will not be deterred in responding appropriately to this dastardly act.

“In honour of the victims of this unfortunate attack, I hereby direct that all flags be flown at half-mast for seven days, starting from today, Monday, June 6, to Sunday, June 12, 2022. It is a collective loss to the people of our dear state," he stated.
