"We will brief the public after investigation is concluded", it continued.
Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN, today joined other eminent Nigerians in condemning the killing of innocent worshipers last Sunday at St Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area in Anambra state.
The attack was carried out on Sunday morning by yet to be identified assailant (s).
Pope Francis has written to condole with the people of Anambra over a recent bloody attack that led to the death of several people at St.Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu.
But a local human rights activist said there was more than one attacker and they had been targeting the son of a local chief.
However, the police's preliminary investigation has revealed the mass killing was likely to be a result of a feud between two individuals who are from the community but who live outside Nigeria.
Anambra state spokesman Ifeanyi Aniagoh said in a statement that a lone gunman was responsible.
A police articulation by Nwode Nkeiruka, an aide administrator of police for Anambra state, expressed that eight admirers were executed. "It is animalistic, cowardly and shameful and all necessary steps should immediately be taken by security forces to bring the perpetrators to book".
"Thanking over 50 doctors who were on ground looking after the injured, the governor assured their families that all medical bills will be taken care of by the state government", Aniagoh said.
Christians make up 51.3 percent of Nigeria's population, while Muslims living primarily in the north and middle belt account for 45 percent.
