Anambra Shooting Not A Terror Attack - Police
Some people in Ozubulu area of Anambra went to church on Sunday but they never made it back home.
A man entered the church with a gun and shot at random, sending 11 of the worshipers to meet their maker.
In the past, one could only imagine this could happen in America or the Boko Haram infested northeast Nigeria.
Reports from police authorities have brought some relief to Ndi Anambra who are currently wondering what is going on.
The police are saying the shooting in the church is not related to any form of terrorism.
They said it was an action of an aggrieved man.
The Commissioner of Police in Anambra State Mr Garba Umar, ruled out the possibility of a terror attack, and said the event is a result of an isolated feud between individuals in the community.
The command, he said, had invited some suspects who would be useful to the investigation to find out exactly what happened.
The CP advised residents to go about their lawful businesses, assuring them that churches and public places are safe.
“The command, under my watch, will leave no stone unturned in locating and prosecuting those behind the massacre of innocent worshippers.
“The intelligence report and preliminary investigation showed that the incident was as a result of a feud between two individuals from the same community living outside Nigeria.
“One of the individuals built the church where the shooting occurred; it is definitely not a terrorist attack in the mould of Boko Haram or Fulani herdsmen attack,” Umar said.
