Ozubulu Massacre: Obi weeps ,Consoles Families, Others as Ubah, Ezeemo, Uba visit

www.odogwublog.com reports that the former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi has expressed shock and unbelief at what he called “mindless barbarism”, that took place at Ozubulu yesterday, where some armed hoodlums went into a church and gunned down some worshippers in indiscriminate murder.  Obi said that such barbarism was alien to Igbo people and should be condemned by all men of good will.

In a statement made available to the press, Obi    condoled the immediate families of the deceased, the Ozubulu community, the Catholic Church and the entire state, describing the act as the “highest exemplification of barbarism.” He noted that Igbo people were known for the respect for the sacredness of human life and advised they must not allow the culture of violence and mindless killing to triumph among them.   

Mr. Obi, who said he received the news with shock while he was in Lagos for a speech engagement, assured the Ozubulu community  and the Catholic Church of his solidarity with them at this intense period of grief.

He also revealed that being not available in the State at the time the dastardly act took place and  having asked his former Commissioner, Dr. Patrick Obi to visit the scene and report to him accordingly, that he was abreast with the incidence, and prayed to God to instill the culture of respect for human life on the people to avoid such mindless killing in future.
