Anambra Church Attack: Buhari Calls Obiano
The people of Anambra are still mourning over the gunmen attack that left 11 members of St. Philip Catholic Church, Ozubulu dead.
President Muhammadu Buhari, who is far away in London on medical vacation, has expressed his deep sympathy with the families of the victims, the Church leadership and the government of Anambra.
Buhari had earlier in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, condemned the attack, describing the incident as “an appalling crime against humanity and unspeakable sacrilege”.
In the statement, the President said that “there was no justification whatsoever to target Church worshippers and kill them in cold blood."
However, barely two hours after the release of the President’s statement on the incident, Shehu also confirmed that the President had a telephone conversation with Governor Willie Obiano where he commiserated with him, families of the victims as well as the people of the state.
He said: “The President has just finished speaking to Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, in the course of which he commiserated with him, the famines of the victims and the citizens of the state over the tragic shooting incident this morning.’’
It was gathered that the Ozubulu killings was a result of a dispute between two sons of the area.
The Commissioner of Police in charge of Anambra, Garba Umar, revealed that the police had launched a manhunt on those behind the incident and gave an assurance that everybody behind the act would be brought to justice.
