Share This

By Nuel Suji – Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has condemned the early morning attack on worshipers at a Catholic church describing, as abominable, barbaric, inhuman, and the height of wickedness.

Several worshipers were on Sunday morning killing by yet unknown gunmen inside a Catholic church during morning Mass in Ozubulu in Anambra State.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media & Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, the Speaker expressed shock at the sad news of the massacre of innocent worshipers in cold blood by people he described as ”sons of perdition whose souls will rot in hell.”

“Have we lost our humanity? Where is the place of sanctity of life and sacredness of worship in our society? What offence did the worshipers commit to warrant their massacre in cold blood by wicked souls and heartless men?”

The Speaker lamented that increasing insecurity is reducing Nigeria to the state of nature as life is increasingly becoming cheap.

He again reiterated his call for the overhaul of Nigeria’s policing architecture that will lead to reform of the Police Force, equip them with modern and sophisticated gadgets to discharge their duties of protecting lives and property effectively, and ensure social order in the society.

Mr. Dogara further called on security agencies to fish out perpetrators of the heinous crime and bring them to justice speedily.

He extended his heartfelt condolences to families of the victims, people and government of Anambra state, Nigeria and the Catholic Church over the sad and unfortunate incident.
