Available reports say some members of the terror group that attacked and killed worshippers at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church Owo, Ondo State, on Sunday have been captured by security forces.
A video sighted by EXCLUSIVEBASE Media shows a mob of protesters at the Palace of the Olowo of Owo.
The protesters, mainly youths, are trying to resist the planned movement of the suspects to Akure.
Security forces are now on ground to prevent the breakdown of law and order in Owo and in the palace.
Earlier, the Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Ogunoye, confirmed that the suspects have been nabbed.
One of them could be heard saying: “They want to take them (suspects) to Akure. The youths are angry.”
On Wednesday, the Ondo State Government gave a new casualty figure from the terrorist attack.
The state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Banji Ajaka, stated in a press statement that as of Tuesday midnight, the number of victims was 127 while 40 had been confirmed dead.
The security agency also announced that three unexploded Improvised Explosive Device at the scene (IEDs) were recovered.
Interior Minister, Rauf Aregbesola, confirmed ISWAP’s involvement in the Ondo attack while briefing State House Correspondents after the National Security Council meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
