APC Condemns Anambra Church Killings


By Andrew Essien, Abuja 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned yesterday’s Catholic Church in Anambra state, just as it urged the security agencies to bring the perpetrators to book.

In release signed by the party’s national publicity secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC commiserates with the government and people of Anambra State over the attack on St. Phillips Catholic Church in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, which led to the death of scores of worshipers.

The statement reads in part: “The APC condemns the barbarism displayed by the callous attackers who gunned down defenceless people while they worshiped.

“The Party calls on security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of this heinous crime are promptly apprehended and brought to justice.

“The Party also calls on security agents in Anambra as well as other parts of the country to provide adequate security in places of worship to forestall a repeat of this unfortunate incident.

“We pray that the souls of the deceased rest in peace.” the statement said.
