An undisclosed number of people have reportedly been killed at St Phillip’s Catholic Church, in Ozubulu, a town in Ekwusigo Local Government Area, of Anambra State.
A witness said it was some gunmen, others said it was Boko Haram who concealed their identities with masks, broke into the church, when the first mass service was holding.
The witness said the gunmen then went on rampage, and “shot at the remaining worshipers, numbering over 100.”
The source reportedly said some worshipers who were critically injured, died on their way to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital, in Nnewi, the State capital.
Security personnel have cordoned off the church, which has since been deserted by worshipers.
The Governor of the State, Willie Obiano, has visited the scene of the attack.
