Ozubulu Church Killings: We Are Close To Arresting The Gunman – Obiano

Governor Willie Obiano has revealed that security agencies are close to capturing the gunman responsible for the massacre that occurred at a Catholic church in Ozubulu, Anambra state, a week ago.

Obiano, who spoke to newsmen in Abuja on Friday at the National Headquarters of the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA), stated that the target of the attack was a business partner of the alleged gunman responsible for the killings. He further stated that the target’s father was murdered during the attack.

He said: “We are taking precautions, we have a lead and the police have made some arrests and we are very confident that we will resolve the matter very soon,”.

We can’t use that singular incident to judge the state. We have stopped kidnapping, assassinations and all that in the state. So, whichever way you look at it, we remain a safe state,”.

Obiano disclosed that his government has taken responsibility for paying the hospital bills of people injured during the attack and the burials of the dead victims.
