An Islamic group, the Islamic Welfare Foundation (IWF), has called on the Government of Ondo State and security agencies in the county to use all resources within their disposal to fish out the mass murderers responsible for the bloodletting recently at the St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.
