One of the survivors of the gory incident of shooting and killing of worshippers in the Church in Ozubulu, Anambra State, on Sunday, August 6, has narrated how he escaped.
Mr. Ohamadike Stephen said: “We were in the church and I was to handle the second reading. As the first reading was stillon, I heard a sound like a thunder. I dived under a long form in the church auditorium and from there raised up my head a bit and saw a young man with a face cap shooting and people ran in all directions for safety in confusion.
Daily Sun reports that the survivor reluctantly accepted to talk after flatly refusing his photo to be used.
I remained where I was and that was around 5:45am. The Parish Priest removed his cassock and hid at the altar while the gunmen continued in the shooting spree.
“When they had left, I helped in evacuating the wounded and casualties to the NAUTH, Nnewi,” he said.
Also later in the evening, the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone 9, Umuahia, Mr. Hassan Karma visited the victims at the NAUTH and said that the act was completely unacceptable before man and God. The AIG assured that the perpetrators must be fished out. He said that would not make anyone say there is no security in Anambra State.
