The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Leo Irabor on Tuesday said security operatives have arrested some suspected terrorists that were linked to the terror attack at Saint Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.
General Irabor disclosed this on Tuesday during a parley with executives and editors of media organisations in Nigeria.
He said the attackers were arrested during joint operations involving the Armed Forces, the Department of Security Services (DSS) and the police.
The arrest is coming barely two months after the gunmen killed scores of worshipers at the church.
About 40 people were killed when the gunmen stormed the church on June 5, opened fire on the congregation, and also detonated explosives as the worshippers scampered for safety.
