This is very disheartening.
According to multiple online reports, scores of worshipers were killed this morning during a church service
at St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu area of Anambra state.
According to sketchy details, the church was invaded by unknown gunmen shot shot indiscriminately at the congregants, killing many and leaving others wounded.
According to a Report from a source reads below;
This morning gun men entered my home town of Ozubulu,
precisely at St Philip’s Catholic Church, Amakwa Ozubulu opened fire and killed several worshipers.
St Philip’s is reputed as a purposed built architectural masterpiece,
a luxurious place of worship consecrated about two years ago by the Catholic Bishop of Nnewi Most Rev Dr Odili Okeke.
The project was solely financed by world famous philanthropist High Chief Nnamdi Ikegwounwu (Ebubechukwuuzo Ozubulu).
Bodies are being taken to nearby Ozubulu Joint Hospital mortuary.
The message which the armed men sent is yet to be ascertained but the terror is suspected to be religiously motivated.
The death toll is on the increase as the injured and the dead bodies have been taken to NAUTH Nnewi.
Today being Sunday, all the Doctors and pharmacists attending mass in the hospital have retired to the theater and casualty units for surgeries and treatment.
