The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has warned that Boko Haram is present in the South West.

The group believes that the barbaric attack on the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, which killed many worshippers, was carried out by Boko Haram and has warned that more churches and mosques may be targeted in the future.

MURIC strongly condemned the terrorist attack and urged the government to act decisively and apprehend the perpetrators.

The attackers killed dozens of worshippers during Sunday service, according to the DAILY POST, and MURIC said they should be arrested immediately.

Professor Ishaq Akintola, the director of MURIC, signed the statement.

“We strongly condemn this act of unprovoked aggression,” it said. It’s inhumane, heinous, horrific, and horrifying.” We demand that the attackers be apprehended and prosecuted immediately.”

The Muslim rights advocacy group urged the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usban Alkali Baba, and the Ondo Police Command to find the killers as soon as possible, claiming that the killers needed a safe haven.

The group also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the Nigerian Army to assist in the hunt for the murderers as soon as possible.

“This latest attack is undeniable proof of Boko Haram’s existence in the South West following their penetration into Niger and Kogi States,” the group said.

“According to Boko Haram’s mode of operation, we warn that mosques and more churches may be the next targets, as this is how they began in the North.” As a result, we request protection for all churches and mosques in the region,” it said.

MURIC expressed condolences to families who had lost loved ones in the attack and prayed for the injured who were being treated in hospitals.

The rights group expressed solidarity with the state governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, “in this hour of deep sadness.”
