Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams, said the disclosure through investigation by the Federal Government that ISWAP was behind the attack on Catholic Church, in Owo, Ondo State in which several worshippers were killed and several others fatally wounded, tallied with the alarm raised by South West Security Stakeholders Group (SSSG) about five weeks ago that some terrorists had invaded the South-West, but which unfortunately was ignored by the state governors in the zone.
SSSG, which Iba Adams is a key stakeholder, comprises of other security groups like the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), Agbekoya, Vigilante, Isokan Oodua, COMSAIC, and others.
The Yoruba generalissimo said this in his reaction, saying he too suspected that the Owo Catholic Church attack was carried out by an international organization, adding: “It was a highly coordinated attack.”
“The information we had earlier was that some terrorists have invaded a very close forest in Owo.
“These terrorists, according to our information, have their food being supplied to them via helicopter, and the Olowo, who is the traditional ruler of the ancient town, even the state government could not flush them out of the thick forest
“So, that tells you that they have occupied the bush to carry out their calculated killings,” he added
