Boko Haram terrorists are in the South West, Carried Out Owo Attack’ – MURIC

Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC in a recent statement said it had warned that Boko Haram terrorists are in the South West.

According to a report the group believes that the barbaric attack on the St. Francis Catholic Church Owo, that left many worshippers dead, was carried out by Boko Haram and warned strongly that more Churches and mosques may come under such attack

MURIC strongly condemned the terrorist’ attack, calling on the government to act decisively and arrest the attackers. In a statement signed by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, the group states as follows:

“We strongly condemn this act of unprovoked aggression. It is inhuman, heinous, horrific and horrendous.

“We call for immediate arrest and prosecution of the attackers.

“This latest attack is indubitable evidence of the existence of Boko Haram in the South West after their penetration into Niger and Kogi States.

“Going by Boko Haram modus operandi, we warn that mosques and more churches may be the next targets because this was how they started in the North. We, therefore, ask for protection for all churches and mosques in the region.

The advocacy group called on the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usban Alkali Baba and the Ondo Police Command to find the killers without delay.

MURIC sympathised with families who have lost their loved ones in the attack and also prayed for the wounded who are receiving treatment in hospitals.
