  • Nigerian govt to beef up security in worship centres — Ngige

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.
