President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the Ozubulu Church attack in Anambra State by a yet to be identified gunmen, describing the incident as “an appalling crime against humanity and unspeakable sacrilege.”
President Buhari expressed his grief in a strongly worded statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.
He said that “there was no justification whatsoever to target Church worshippers and kill them in cold blood.”
He said this kind of atrocity “plumbs the depth of depravity and extreme cruelty of the kind that words cannot adequately express.”
According to the President, there is no religion that does not lay constant emphasis on the sanctity of life, and that “all Nigerians must rise up and speak with one voice against these remorseless evil men.”
Buhari expressed his deep felt sympathy with the families of the victims, the Church leadership and the government of Anambra State.
He reassured all Nigerians of his administration’s firm and uncompromising commitment to protect their lives and property at all times.
The President has just finished speaking to Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, in the course of which he commiserated with him, the famines of the victims and the citizens of the state over the tragic shooting incident this morning.
