Pope Francis reacts to Ozubulu Church Gunmen Attack

Pope Francis has sent his sympathy to the families of victims of ‘Ozubulu Church attack.

In an Aug. 7 telegram addressed to Bishop Hilary Paul Odili Okeke of Nnewi, Pope Francis said he was “deeply saddened to learn the loss of life and injury following the violent attack in Saint Philip’s Catholic Church, Ozubulu.”

Catholicnewsagency reports that the Pope extended his “heartfelt condolences to you and to all the faithful of the Diocese of Nnewi, in particular the families of the deceased and all those affected by this tragedy,” and offered blessings of “consolation and strength” upon the entire diocese.
