The alleged target in the August 6 killings in St Philip’s Catholic Church at Ozubulu, Anambra State, Aloysius Ikegwuonu, alias ‘Bishop’ has asked monarchs in the state to use traditional means to reveal the perpetrators of the heinous act.
He stated this on Wednesday when monarchs in the state paid a condolence visit to the traditional ruler of Ozubulu, Igwe Nnamdi Oruche.
He said, “I implore you, my lords, to ask the gods of the land to reveal the perpetrators of this dastardly act.
The Monarchs were led by the traditional ruler of Iseke, Igwe Emma Nnabuife.
Ikegwuonu regretted negative comments against him on the matter.
Ikegwuonu said he was surprised that people started making negative comments about him in the media when the incident occurred instead of helping to provide useful information on how to get the killers.
He commended the traditional rulers for their visit and concern as well as the fatherly role they had played since the attack.
For his part, the traditional ruler of Ozubulu, Igwe Nnamdi Oruche, commended his colleagues for their solidarity and concern over what happened in his community.
He said the Ozubulu community would make its own arrangements in a traditional way to unravel the perpetrators of the crime.
