“From our findings, it is very clear that the person who carried the attack must be an indigene of the area.

“We gathered that worshippers for 6 o’clock Sunday mass at St. Philip Ozobulu were in the service when a gunman dressed in black attire covering his face with a cap entered the church and moved straight to a particular direction and opened fire.

“The man after shooting at his targeted victims still went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding other worshippers,” he said.

The Police Commissioner also stated that they have information, that the attack was a result of a quarrel between two natives of Ozubulu residing overseas.

“Such conduct shows the people behind the act do not fear God,” he added.

The enemy of an Igbo man is another Igbo man.

If you go round the threads concerning this church massacre, Igbo posters have blamed everyone but themselves.

They blamed the Fulani herdsmen,

Blamed the Police for not arresting the perpetrators before shooting,

Blamed the Yorubas and called us interlopers,

Blamed the Anambra Governor saying he killed the worshippers because they booed him,

Blamed the Governor's opponents claiming the opponents want to make Obiano look culpable,

Blamed the press for putting the pictures online,.

Blamed Nairaland moderators for pushing a thread that makes Igbos look bad to the front page.


They've blamed everyone but themselves and refused to tell themselves the truth. It is because of things like this that Igbo sons and daughters have refused to come back to the East.

Igbos need to stop glorifying questionable wealth and stop promoting the 'get rich or die trying' mentality.

The number of Igbos facing death sentences in Asian prisons is more than the number of worshippers killed today.

Igbo elders should begin the process of promoting legitimate wealth and entrepreneurs with verifiable means of livelihood and not shady millionaires with no history of hard work.
