  • Why lone gunman mowed down 8 worshippers in Anambra Catholic Church

"Our heart goes to the family and parishioners of St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, where unidentified gunmen reportedly killed several church members and wounded several others early today".

On getting to the church, he had left and out of anger, probably, they rained bullets on worshippers in the church.

Fr. Jude Onwuaso said that the attack took place at about 6.30 a.m. during a Holy Mass celebration.

Chukwuma Emeka said he had just stepped out of the church to stretch his legs "when I heard gunshots and screaming and people running inside".

One account gave the toll as eight killed and 18 injured, although other reports put the number of dead much higher.

"So far, 12 persons have been confirmed dead and deposited in the mortuary here", a worker at Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital told AFP.

"The man after shooting at his targeted victims still went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding other worshippers".

The governor said that the attackers who attacked the church opened fire when they perceived that one of the people they are targeting has his vehicle parked outside the church. They feared that up to 20 people may have died.

That man was shot and then a rampage ensued, with indiscriminate fire directed at the roughly 100 worshippers on hand.

He dismissed insinuations that the gunmen who carried out the attack were from outside the State.

Obiano made the vow when he visited the scene of the killings in company of the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Garba Umar.

No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but such incidents are usually blamed on the Takfiri Boko Haram terrorist group, which is particularly active in the country's northeast region.
