Anam­bra church at­tack: Per­pe­tra­tors won’t go scot-free – Os­in­bajo

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Act­ing Pres­i­dent Yemi Os­in­bajo yes­ter­day vowed that the per­pe­tra­tors of Sun­day’s at­tack on St. Philip Catholic Church Ozubulu in Anam­bra State would not go scot­free.

The spokesman of the act­ing pres­i­dent, Laolu Akande, said in a state­ment that his boss had since been re­ceiv­ing reg­u­lar up­dates on the sta­tus of in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the at­tack.

Akande quoted Os­in­bajo as de­scrib­ing the in­ci­dent in which many wor­ship­pers were killed and others in­jured, as an atro­cious and mind­less act of vi­o­lence.

He said the act­ing pres­i­dent had been in touch with Anam­bra State Gov­er­nor Willy Obiano, po­lice au­thor­i­ties and other se­cu­rity agen­cies.

Akande quoted Os­in­bajo as as­sur­ing that “The per­pe­tra­tors of the heinous crime would be brought to jus­tice.”

He added: “Prof Os­in­bajo con­demns the despicable acts of vi­o­lence, and com­mis­er­ates with fam­i­lies, rel­a­tives, friends of the vic­tims, the en­tire peo­ple and the gov­ern­ment Anam­bra State.” of
