The women groups included the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), Federation of Muslim Women Societies (FOMWAN), Red Cross, market women and leaders, women artisans and the Womanifesto Movement of Nigeria.
The women were led by the wife of the Ondo governor, Betty Akeredolu, and the wife of the deputy governor, Mrs Olúwaseun Aiyedatiwa.
The co-convener of the Womanifesto, Dr Abiola Akinyode-Afolabi, said the Owo killing was a pointer that the security in the country had collapsed.
The group called on the government to demonstrate accountability and carry out a speedy investigation “that is conclusive, leads to arrest, successful judicial prosecution and sentencing of the killers.”
