Police reveal what they know about attackers of Catholic Church

The Commissioner of Police in charge of Anambra State, Garba Umar, has revealed what the police know about one of the perpetrator of the attack on St Philip Catholic Church Ozubulu, Anambra State, Southeast Nigeria.
Garba Umar said the man who started the shooting spree spoke in Igbo language, the predominant language in the South East, dismissing claims that the massacre at the Catholic church in Ekwusigo local government area of the state was carried out by Boko Haram members. Some members of the state had earlier speculated that the attack was carried out by members of the terrorist group.
In an interview with newsmen, Garba who visited the scene after the attack that left eight persons dead, said the person who fired the gunshot, spoke igbo during the attack.
“From our findings, it is very clear that the person who carried the attack must be an indigene of the area. The man after shooting at his targeted victims still went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding other worshippers. Information available to police showed that the attacker was speaking Igbo at the time he was firing at worshippers.” he said
