“We urge the parishioners to be strong and not allow the incident to wane their faith and confidence in God.”
Ologbondiyan also condoled with Gov. Ifeyinwa Okowa of Delta over the unfortunate incident.
He urged all public-spirited persons and groups to immediately come to the assistance of the Church and the victims.
