mixed photos from the sad incident

Just as the dust from the massive killings in a catholic church Ozubulu could settle, another tragic similar incident occur in a Assemblies of God Church in the Oguta road Onitsha.


Unknown armed men came shooting killing one policeman and a civilian. An eyewitness told PUNCH that the gunmen had almost stopped at the Assemblies of God Church, but on sighting some policemen at the church, opened fire on them.

“When the firing became too hot, the policemen abandoned their patrol vehicle and ran away for safety.
“The gunmen moved to their patrol van and took a gun belonging to the policeman they killed.
“I saw two of the gunmen but I can’t say how many they are in number.
Another eyewitness said,

“Gunmen on Okada (motorcycle) shot a policeman and collected his rifle. They also shot dead an Okada man while escaping, and the passenger he was carrying was injured. The policeman was the one armed among his colleagues; they were providing security while church service was going on at Assemblies of God Church, Oguta road Onitsha.

Mr Garba Umar, The Anambra State Commissioner of Police, confirmed the incident to journalists when they arrived.

He said it was not an attack on the church, adding that

“My men were on patrol near the church when they were attacked by some gunmen. It was not an attack on the church, in the real sense of it”.

The commissioner confirmed that the hoodlums took away a rifle belonging to the deceased cop.
Dr Chris Ngige, The Minister of Labour and Employment on Saturday earlier said the Federal Government would work out means of securing places of worship in the country.

Leading a federal government delegation to console with the people of Anambra State on the Ozubulu killing, Ngige said that had become prone following incessant attacks on places of worship.
