Church Shooting: Kalu condemns incident as barbaric, uncommon wickedness


Former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has condemned the gun attack on worshippers at St. Philip’s Catholic Church in Ozubulu, Anambra State.

Kalu who made this condemnation in a press statement signed by his Special Assistant, Mr. Peter Eze, said the attack was the worst form of barbarism and uncommon wickedness on South east soil.

He called on both the federal and state governments to get to the root of the attack and ensure that no such terror was visited on worshippers in any part of the country.

The former Governor observed that worshippers should be free to worship God without fear of terrorist attacks.

While insisting that the masterminds of the attack must face the law, the former Governor described the terror as very depressing and unjustifiable.

“News of an armed attack on worshippers at St. Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu in Anambra State hit me with a shock. As I send this, I still am unable to fathom the rationale behind such barbarism and wickedness.

“It is very depressing and no reasons justify such act of terror. It is condemnable. It is wrong. It is uncalled for. We do not need further bloodshed in Nigeria.

“I urge the security agencies, federal and state governments and all local security apparatus to ensure that those behind this barbaric act, and their sponsors, are exposed and made to face the full wrath of the law.

“We can’t continue like this. No one, no matter how highly placed, should get away with such acts”, he said.

He commiserated with the families of victims of the attack, the Catholic Church in Anambra State and the state government while calling on all Nigerians to remain vigilant at all times and report suspicious movements around them to nearby vigilantes and Police.
