The terrorists also abducted many worshippers during the attack, which happened while the church was rounding off the first mass.

Some of the seriously injured persons were said to have been rushed to St. Gerald Catholic Hospital, Kaduna.

It was also gathered the terrorists came in large numbers on motorcycles and shot sporadically.

On Sunday, June 5, terrorists exploded bombs and rained bullets at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State, killing dozens and injuring many others.

The gunmen, who disguised as worshippers, detonated the explosives before opening fire on members of the church.

When the guns quieted, no fewer than 40 worshippers, including four children, were killed on the church premises.

They were said to have operated unchallenged by security agents for about 30 minutes.

Those killed were given mass burial last Friday in Emure community amid tears by family members and friends.

Then two days later, another Catholic Church was invaded.

In recent times the Catholic Church has come under serious attack by terrorists. Some Catholic priests have been killed while many have been abducted for ransom.

Four days after the Ondo attack, even without any arrests or conclusive forensic investigation and evidence, the Federal Government blamed the Islamic State, West African Province (ISWAP) for the attack at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, in Ondo State.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, flanked by the Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman, said that the Owo Catholic Church attack was perpetrated by international criminals.
