Tinubu, Osinbajo, Fayemi, Amosun Postpone Political Activities Over Owo Massacre



Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu; Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi and Senator Ibikunle Amosun have on Monday put all political activities on hold, following the Sunday attack on a Catholic church in Owo, Ondo State.

Tinubu, Osinbajo and Fayemi who are presidential aspirants in the primary of the All Progressives Congress were supposed to be in Abuja for the primary of their party but they suspended that to condole with the victims, their relatives, as well as political, religious and traditional leaders.

It was learnt that while Amosun, Fayemi and Tinubu were already in Owo, Osinbajo had already arrived in Ondo State but had not yet reached Owo as of the time of filing this report.

The attack on the church in Owo, the hometown of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, came barely a week after the Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Bishop Samuel Kanu-Uche, was kidnapped in Abia State by gunmen, who the priest later identified as Fulani youths.

The gunmen, who attacked the Catholic Church, arrived at the premises, which is less than 200 metres from the palace of the Olowo of Owo, at 12 pm when the Sunday mass was being rounded off.

Amosun and Tinubu were at the palace of the Olowo of Owo, Ajibade Ogunoye III, for a condolence visit as of the time this report was filed.
