Nigerians have taken to social media to pray for them, may God console their familiess. “As they stood, Singing “Stand up, stand up for Jesus”, tears finally came rushing. Nothing comes to your mind but the Bible verse that says
‘Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani?’ ‘My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?’
21 coffins here.
May the soul of Owo massacres rest in peace”

“Eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord, let perpetual light shine upon them. May they Rest in peace. This is a clear consequence of bad leadership. A good reason why we must get it right in 2023. Let’s not play politics with our lives. Anyone can be the next victim.”
