Update on Ozubulu Catholic Church Shooting: Obiano Visits Scene, Hospital (Photos)

Sadness broke out in Ozubulu community in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra State as a gun man stormed St Philip's Catholic Church and began shooting sporadically, killing 11 worshippers and injuring 18 persons.

On hearing the sad development, Governor Obiano arrived the scene to ascertain the level of damage and sympathize with the people.

Speaking at the Church premises, the governor revealed that preliminary security investigations show that the shooting was caused by a feud between two brothers from the community living outside Nigeria.

"This is sacrilegious, totally unacceptable in Anambra State."

The deeply saddened governor asked the people to go about their businesses without fear or panic noting that this isolated case must be followed to the root and all perpetrators must be brought to book.

"We can't allow this to happen in Anambra, we must get everyone involved to face the music" the governor declared.

Gov Obiano also visited Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi where the injured are being treated.

Thanking over 50 doctors who were on ground looking after them, the governor assured their families that all medical bills will be taken care of by the State Government.
