Mr Macaroni tweeted, “Just reading that St Francis Church in Ondo State has been attacked! Multiple people have been killed! I’m not even sure of the numbers.
“I saw a part of the video and I couldn’t even watch till the end! Is there no longer value for human life in Nigeria? Goodness!

“What has happened to the right of every citizen to life? There is no justification for this madness!”
