Police dismisses claim on arrest of Owo church attackers

The Ondo State Police Command has dismissed the claim on the arrest of suspected attackers of St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo local government area of the state.

The Commandant of the state’s Security Network Agency, Amotekun Corps, Adetunji Adeleye, said on Thursday the agency’s operatives had arrested some suspects in connection with the June 5 killing of 40 worshippers in the church.

The command’s spokesperson, Funmilayo Odunlami, who reacted to the development in a statement in Akure, said the command was oblivious of the claim.
