Easter Sunday will see the reopening of the St. Francis Catholic Church in the Owo, Owo local government, which was attacked by terrorists last year.

The attack that took place on June 5th resulted in a total of 41 fatalities and 69 injuries.

The Ebira tribe, noted for its migrant farmers, was found to be represented by suspects detained in connection with the military assault.

At this year’s Chrism liturgy as part of events to honor Easter celebration, the Ondo Diocese’s Bishop, Rev. Bishop Jude Arogundade, announced the church’s reopening.

Since the attack on worshippers, according to Arogundade, the church has been locked.

He said: “Since the unfortunate incident that befell our members at the saint Francis Cathedral in Owo on June 5 2022, the church has been closed down for security reasons and as a mark of respect for our fallen brothers and sisters.

“The church shall be opened again for Easter Sunday. The government of Ondo state is as well planning to commemorate the one year anniversary of the massacre in honor of our fallen heroes.”
