President Muhammadu Buhari has made known his sadness over the Ozubulu Church attack in Anambra State by a yet to be identified gunman, describing the incident as “an appalling crime against humanity and unspeakable sacrilege.”
The President expressed his anger in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Sunday.
President Buhari said that “there was no justification whatsoever to target Church worshippers and kill them in cold blood.’’
He said this kind of absurd act “plumbs the depth of depravity and extreme cruelty of the kind that words cannot adequately express.’’
According to the President, there is no religion that does not lay constant emphasis on the sanctity of life, and that “all Nigerians must rise up and speak with one voice against these remorseless evil men.’’
