Governor Ahmed condemns New Year church attack
The Kwara State Governor, Dr Abdul Fatah Ahmed, has condemned the midnight attack on worshippers on the eve of the new year on Ibrahim Taiwo Road in Ilorin.
Ahmed, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Abdulwahaab Oba described the dastardly attack as criminal, satanic and alien to the state.
The governor, however, commended those who made efforts to protect some of the victims regardless of their religious inclination.
“Peace is sine qua non for the development of any society and the government will not tolerate any act capable of breaching peace, unity and tranquility of the state,” he said.
Ahmed, however, called on security agencies to immediately launch an investigation into the incident and unravel the perpetrators of the unholy act with a view to bringing them to book.
