Ozubulu Church in Anambra State witnessed a bad Sunday service yesterday when some gun shooters attacked the church and killed innocent people.
President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to incident and described it as “an appalling crime against humanity and unspeakable sacrilege.”
Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the president, Malam Garba Shehu, delivered the speech of the President which says: “there was no justification whatsoever to target Church worshippers and kill them in cold blood.”
He said this kind of atrocity “plumbs the depth of depravity and extreme cruelty of the kind that words cannot adequately express.”
According to the President, there is no religion that does not lay constant emphasis on the sanctity of life, and that “all Nigerians must rise up and speak with one voice against these remorseless evil men.”
While expressing his deep felt sympathy with the families of the victims, the Church leadership and the government of Anambra State, President Buhari has reassured all Nigerians of his administration’s firm and uncompromising commitment to protect their lives and property at all times.
