Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has eventually broken his silence over the St Philip’s Catholic Church, Amakwa Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Government Area massacre where worshippers were killed.
“It is tragic that these two people had to bring their quarrel abroad to the village and to the church where innocent people had to be killed and injured. We are not going to relax until those who perpetrated this heinous crime are apprehended. That I can assure you.”
“It was so bad that the gunmen went round the church to ascertain that the car belonging to the person they were after was there before they entered the church and started shooting, not knowing that it was his parents that came in the car. I don’t want churches in this state to become apprehensive because of this incident because it is an isolated case.”
“I commend the doctors for their quick response to save lives, but for their intervention, more lives would have been lost. The state government would offset the bills of those being treated and assist in bearing the cost of the funeral of those who lost their lives.”
