Anambra Killings: Police summon LG chairman, others over Ozubulu incident

St Philips Catholic church, Ozubulu

On Sunday, August 6, 2017, unknown gunmen stormed a church and opened fire on worshippers, killing many and leaving several others injured.

The Anambra state police command has summoned the Chairman of Ekwusigo Local Government Area, Ikenna Ofodeme to shed more light on the Ozubulu killings.

On Sunday, August 6, 2017, unknown gunmen stormed a church and opened fire on worshippers, killing many and leaving several others injured.

According to reports, the massacre has been traced to a feud between rival drug gangs in South-Africa.

Also invited by the police, are: the President-General of Ozubulu Town Union and Jovita Ofomata, Chairman of Ebubechukwuzo Foundation owned by Aloysius Ikegwuonu.

Ikegwuonu is the alleged drug baron that was reportedly targeted by the gunmen, reports say.

Speaking on the incident, the President-General of Ozubulu Development Union (ODU), Dr Ernest Chukwuka urged Nigerians not to jump into conclusion on the cause of the incident.

According to Vanguard, Chukwuka said “I called a meeting of Ozubulu stakeholders and there we decided on some of the things we will do. I must confess that we are not happy, we are mourning, this is a great shock to us, and it will take some time for us to come out of this shock, but with God on our side, we will come out of it.

“One of the things we decided to do after our meeting, yesterday, is to visit the victims and give them some assistance.

“As we are visiting them in the respective hospitals where they are being treated, we are getting their names and their villages, and we are still going to visit the mortuaries where the corpses are kept.”

Some Nigerians have described the Ozubulu church killings as a terror incident, while others are pointing accusing fingers at Fulani herdsmen.

Do you think that the drug mafia story is just a cover up?
