PRESS RELEASE:

REVEAL IDENTITIES OF OWO CHURCH KILLERS – MURIC  

 

The Commander of the Amotekun security outfit in Ondo State, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, last week reported that the criminals who were behind the killing of about 40 church worshippers in Owo, Ondo State, have been arrested. Reacting to the report, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has asked the Amotekun commander to reveal the identities of those arrested.

 

MURIC made the request in a statement signed by the director of the organisation, Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Wednesday, 29th June, 2022.

 

The statement reads :

“The Commander of the Amotekun security outfit in Ondo State, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, last week reported that those who killed 40 church worshippers in Owo, Ondo State, have been arrested.

 

“We hereby call on the Amotekun commander to reveal the identities of those arrested because Nigerians are eager to know them. We are eager to see the faces of those heartless human beings. Concealing their identities will not help matters because Nigerians have been on the tip-toes of expectation since seven days ago when their arrest was first announced.

 

“However, we are disturbed by reports that the police said they did not know about the arrest. We advise both Amotekun and the police to work in synergy. Only thus can we overcome our security challenges.”
