Church Massacre In Anambra State

August 7, 2017 – Church Massacre In Anambra State: Governor Obiano, Stella Oduah, Andy Ubah Commiserate With Catholic Church

By Ononye VC

This is the clear view of the St Philips Catholic Church Ozubulu,Anambra state where gunmen early, massacred about 16 persons including children,young women and the elderly on Sunday.

The church has become a pilgrimage centre of sorts for politicians who came to commiserate with the parish priest of the church.

Early caller today was Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State who visited with officials of state government. The APGA state chairman,Sir Nobert Obi was spotted at the scene so also was Senator Andy Uba,Chief Ezeemo and a good number of clergy men.

The senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District Princess Stella Oduah sent some emissaries with a condolence message and called for an urgent apprehension of those behind the heinous crime.

As at time of filing this report,the victims had already been deposited in various hospitals as the police had cordoned off the scene.

Governor Willie Obiano in a statement alleged that the incident was between two warring drug barons of Ozubulu extraction based in South Africa on a vengeance mission adding that it was not a normal crime of kidnapping or armed robbery.

    It was indeed a river of innocent blood that flowed into the house of God at Saint Philip Catholic Church, Amakwa Ozubulu in Ekwusiago local government area of Anambra state. The question is what are my thoughts?

    It is obvious, even among the people of Ozubulu that Aloysius Ikegwuonu aka Bishop is a “Philanthropic drug Baron” that has issues with his drug gangs in South Africa. There are unconfirmed reports that he tricked his gang members without paying for a drug business job done… He used proceeds of his drug money to build a beautiful church where he also worships when whenever he is in Nigeria.

    He was supposed to come back on Saturday and attend his thanksgiving service on Sunday (I never knew if he did, because he knew assassins were after his life.)

    WOE BETIDE those who out of dead conscience took their useless revenge mission to the Church and unleashed their anger on innocent worshppers who knew nothing about their greviances.

    They must answer to the angry thunder strike of God Almighty pretty soon. They that carried out the attack and those that sponsored the slaughter shall all die a pitiable deaths not even more honourable than that of a Dog‘s death.
    RIP to the victims.

    I take a stroll…

    The devil will even be ashamed at the wickedness of man. Those that carried out this dastardly act in the house of God have secured their everlasting place in hell. May the Lord received the souls of the departed innocent victims of this horrendous crime.
