The youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has blamed the attack on Saint Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State on Sunday on lapses in security.
The National President of YOWICAN, Daniel Kadzai, in a statement, said, “This attack was made possible as a result of what we consider a deliberate shirking of responsibilities by the state security agencies.
“We demand the arrest of perpetrators of this terrorist-style crime within the next 48 hours. If the state security apparatuses do not stand up to this challenge, YOWICAN will have no choice but to take up this matter using a much strenuous approach.’’
The attack, which was perpetrated by a lone gunman, according to the Parish Priest, claimed the lives of not less than 11 worshippers and injured scores.
