Over 20 deaths recorded already according report .
While I sympathize with all the affected families , I wish to submit that this is a time for we to unite against any form of barbarism against our people !
This is not a time for blame games ,but a time for great people created by great God to stand up and secure our people .
Security agency must do everything to arrest the perpetuators of Ozubulu Massacre for them to face the law .
No excuse should make anyone to move into a Church of God and start shooting innocent worshipers !
Our generation must not be intimidated by the agents of darkness !!!

A clearer version of the incident from the eye witness box revealed that the gunmen came to assassinate Bishop (drug lord) and his father but couldn’t find them in their house went into the church built by the same Bishop to hunt for their targets.. On their arrival in the church, they put off the generator supplying power to the church and started shooting sporadically searching for their targets..
