Islamic Group Condemns Anambra Church Massacre

The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria today condemned in strong terms the Sunday’s killings in St. Philip’s Catholic Church, Ozubulu, near Nnewi, Anambra.

A gunman stormed the church and killed at least eight worshipers and injured 18 people. The group made the condemnation in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by its National Coordinator, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi.

Abdullahi described the perpetrators as dare-devil murderers who stormed Ozubulu Catholic Church in Anambra State and killed scores of people during an early-morning mass.

“This is the handwork of terrorists within the community who were reportedly living abroad but came home for what only God knows.


“The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria condemns in strong terms this sacrilegious and terrible act.

“This crime must be properly investigated and culprits should be urgently arrested before they escape from the community.’’

According to Abdullahi, it is commendable that the Police in Anambra State have useful information on the background to the crime as narrated by the Anambra State Commissioner of Police.
