Nigeria’s Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday evening, finally condemned the Anambra church carnage, more than 24 hours after at least 11 people were killed and dozens injured by a gunman who stormed Saint Philip Catholic Church in Ozubulu town and sprayed bullets on worshippers.

“Prof. Osinbajo condemns the despicable acts of violence, and commiserates with families, relatives, friends of the victims, the entire people and the government of Anambra State,” the presidency said in a short and belated statement to Simon Ateba News.

The presidency said Mr. Osinbajo has “since been receiving regular updates on the status of investigations regarding the atrocious and mindless acts of violence yesterday at the St. Philip Catholic Church Ozubulu in Anambra State where worshippers were viciously attacked and a number of innocent Nigerians killed and injured”.

“The Acting President has been in touch with the Anambra State Governor Willy Obiano, police authorities and other security agencies, and assures that the perpetrators of the heinous crimes would be brought to justice”.
