Gunmen Hit Owo Again


For the second time in five weeks, terrorists have struck in Owo, Ondo State.

The attack last night came barely five weeks after terrorists attacked and killed scores of worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo on June 5.


The gunmen reportedly launched the attack at Folahami Junction where Craneburg Construction Company was located, and opened fire on everyone on sight. They also set off explosive devices.

The exact number of casualties is not yet known but many people were said to be injured in the attack.

The Ondo State Police Command confirmed the incident via a tweet on its Twitter handle on Wednesday night.

“Tonight, there was a shooting incident at Craneburg Construction Company Owo, policemen are currently at the scene, victims have been taken to hospital and they are in stable condition,” the command tweeted.

The Amotekun Corps in Ondo State later said its operatives have arrested the suspected assailants.
