Former Nigeria's Vice President, Atiku Abubarka, has condemned Sunday's brutal attack at the St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu in Anambra state by some unknown gunmen.
Twelve worshippers were killed and 18 sustained several degrees of injuries as a result of the bullets wounds that were shot sporadically by the unidentified men during the 5:45am morning mass.
In a statement issued on Monday, Atiku called on the security agencies to expose the perpetrators of the dastardly acts and extended his condolence on the affected victims Anambra.
“I commiserate with the people of Ozubulu in Anambra State, who lost family members in the fatal shooting that also left almost a score injured. I pray that peace will return to their minds and their community soon, even as the police work hard to get to the bottom of the matter. May God comfort them as no man can.
“The difference between us as Nigerians is not a difference in our tribe or our religion. It was and remains a difference based on whether we are good Nigerians or bad Nigerians, and I am very certain that the good Nigerians far outnumber the very few bad ones.”By Ehis Austine
