  • Ozubulu Attack: Osinbajo Sends Delegation To Anambra State

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday sent a five-man Federal Government delegation to Anambra State to condole with the government and people of the state over last Sunday's attack on worshippers at the St. Philips Catholic Church in Ofufe-Amakwa, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of the state.

In the statement, Osinbajo "strongly condemns the atrocious act which has brought sorrow to many innocent families and rightly provoked widespread condemnation".

In the letter, Osinbajo extended deep commiserations to the families, friends of the victims, and the community on the death of their sons and daughters, praying for the speedy recovery of the injured.

The acting president was quoted thus: "Such barbaric act constitutes an affront to our common humanity, and challenges, but will not overwhelm our collective resolve to rid our communities of all forms of violent crimes and criminality".

He said he had instructed law enforcement agencies to bring perpetrators of the crime to book without any delay.

The federal government also assured of adequate medical treatment of the injured victims, saying those with special cases could be flown overseas.

The minister, who described the attack as heinous, wicked and sacrilegious, said the delegation would report back to the presidency.

The delegation, according to Osinbajo's Senior Special Assistant on media and Publicity, Laolu Akande also visited Bishop Hilary Okeke of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nnewi, and Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, also in Nnewi to meet some of the victims still in the hospital.
