Governor, Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu

Following killing of 40 worshippers during terror attacks on St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has cancelled this year’s Democracy Day celebration earlier slated for Sunday 12th June, 2022.

Akeredolu said that the cancellation was to allow everyone across the state complete the seven-day mourn of the innocent worshipers killed barely a week ago in the state.

The cancellation was announced through a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, on Saturday less than 24 hours to the celebration across the state.

According to the statement, this is consequent upon the terror attack on innocent worshipers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, on Sunday 5th June, 2022.

“The cancelation is to enable the entire people of Ondo State mourn their loved ones who lost their lives in the horrific attack”.

It would be recall that Akeredolu, had earlier directed that all flags across the state be flown at half -mast for seven days in honour of the victims of the terror attack.
