Today has just turned into a gloomy Sunday to many families in Ozubulu, Anambra State. This follows the brutal killing of over 30 people who attended 6am Mass at St. Philips Catholic Church in Amakwa, Ozubulu, Anambra State. The victims had attended the early morning church service and were worshiping when unknown gun men stormed the church and opened fire targeting their victims randomly. The number of dead victims is still unknown as some media platforms are reporting over 50 deaths. Several people critically injured are currently in the hospital.
One angle to the story has it that the gun men had arrived the church to assassinate a Billionaire son of the clan who was expected to have been in church that morning. When the assassins got to where the man normally sat, they couldn’t find him so they angrily open fire, sporadically aiming at innocent worshipers.
Information on this incident is still sketchy but it is already trending on various online platforms.
Read what a social media user posted about the incident:
Many feared killed at an Early morning Catholic mass shooting by Unknown Gun men who stormed a church at Ozubulu in Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State .
Over 20 deaths recorded already according report .
While I sympathize with all the affected families , I wish to submit that this is a time for we to unite against any form of barbarism against our people !
This is not a time for blame games ,but a time for great people created by great God to stand up and secure our people .
Security agency must do everything to arrest the perpetuators of Ozubulu Massacre for them to face the law .
No excuse should make anyone to move into a Church of God and start shooting innocent worshipers !
Our generation must not be intimidated by the agents of darkness !!!
