The Sun says AT least 50 people have been slaughtered in a “satanic” massacre by twisted gunmen dubbed “bandits” at a Nigerian church.
Women and children were among the victims after gunmen opened fire on worshippers inside and outside St Francis Catholic Church in the town of Owo.
Ondo state Governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu branded the horror as a “vile and satanic attack” that should not be allowed to happen again.
Officials said children were among the dead.
Shocking footage from the scene showed church worshippers lying in pools of blood while people around them wailed.
Catholic Church spokesman in Nigeria, Reverend Augustine Ikwu, said the shooting had “left the community devastated”.
