The oyo state chief of staff, Dr. Gbade ojo, while receiving the catholic protesters yesterday on behalf of the governor of oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi on the killings of two priests, Rev. Frs. Gor Joseph, Felix TYolaha and 17 members of the church, blames the unfortunate incident on the security operatives, as they failed to provide adequate security.
The Arch bishop of oyo diocese, who led the protest stated that, till the moment of the protest and peaceful demonstration, no words of sympathy nor consolation has been addressed to the catholic community for the loss.
The chief of staff, therefore appealed to the church community on behalf of the governor and urged them to continue to pray for the nation at large, be tolerant of all, irrespective of religious inclination. He also admonished Christians to pray for the leaders without ceasing, which will bring the desired changes, according to biblical instructions.
