President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the Ozubulu Church attack in Anambra State by a gunman, describing the incident as an appalling crime against humanity and unspeakable sacrilege.

Expressing his grief in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, President Buhari said that “there was no justification whatsoever to target Church worshippers and kill them in cold blood.”

He said this kind of atrocity “plumbs the depth of depravity and extreme cruelty of the kind that words cannot adequately express.”

According to the statement, 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.”

While expressing his sympathy with the families of the victims, the Church leadership and the government of Anambra state, the statement reassured Nigerians of the administration’s commitment to the protection of their lives and property at all times.
