BREAKING: Gunmen Attack Another Anambra Church

Published

on

Gunmen on Sunday attack the Assemblies of God Church, Oguta road Onitsha, Anambra State killing one policeman and a civilian, Punch reports.

An eyewitness account said the gunmen had temporarily stopped at the Church, but seeing some policemen at the church, opened fire on them.

“When the firing became too hot, the policemen abandoned their patrol vehicle and ran away for safety.

“The gunmen moved to their patrol van and took a gun belonging to the policeman they killed.

“I saw two of the gunmen but I can’t say how many they are in number.

Another eyewitness said, “Gunmen on Okada (motorcycle) shot a policeman and collected his rifle. They also shot dead an Okada man while escaping, and the passenger he was carrying was injured. The policeman was the one armed among his colleagues; they were providing security while church service was going on at Assemblies of God Church, Oguta road Onitsha.

The Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar confirmed the incident to journalists.

He said it was not an attack on the church, adding “My men were on patrol near the church when they were attacked by some gunmen. It was not an attack on the church, in the real sense of it”.

For how long will people see the handwriting on the wall; one idiot will ask how about our people in the north. They are as good as dead if that’s the case. Let’s just do the needful so that they will know that we got nerves too.

    Hello NDI IGBO IBEM,Recall that we were once told of HEAP OF GUNS STARSHED in Trailers coming from Arewa land nd those guns belonged to the Hausa nd Fulani people selling yam in Nnewi.

    Recall that One Garba Umar was appointed as the DPO of ANAMBRA STATE barely 3months ago.

    Recall that Hausas are the only ONE WITH THIS KIND OF KILLING MENTALITY.

    HAVE YOU ALL not seen the handwriting on the wall?,Have we not Understood the SHETIMA YERIMA claims dat “they must make sure our BIAFRA STRUGGLE 2RU IPOB nd other banners must be seen as terrorists Group”.

    The Game Is Up To Us ALL. CAN’T WE ALL SEE REASON TO BELIEVE OUR SAFETY REST ON OUR SHOULDERS.

    The World Have Seen How OUR readiness to go out from this DARKNESS CALLED NIGERIA.
