Ondo church massacre: Install CCTV in place of worship – Ogun monarch, Eselu urges CAN

The Eselu of Iselu, Oba Akintunde Akinyemi, has written to the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Revd Supo Ayokunle, over the killing of many worshippers at the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.

Oba Akintunde, in the open letter addressed to the CAN President on Tuesday, advised that churches in the country should facilitate the deployment of ‘closed-circuit televisions (CCTV) so as to constantly monitor movements into and out of worship centres.

According to the letter made available to newsmen by the First-class Oba, the video footage from the ‘closed-circuit televisions (CCTV) would continually assist the church authorities to raise alarm to security agents when the need arises.

Oba Akinyemi emphasised that the CAN should also mandate all churches in the country to purchase and use security gadgets to put a stop to gruesome killings in worship centres.
