The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC on Monday demanded that the perpetrators of the massacre of Worshippers at St.Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu in an early morning raid,be fished out and brought to book.
This is as it described the massacre by the yet to be identified assailant(s), as shocking, bizarre and reprehensible.
The NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba who made the demand in a press release, noted that places of worship quite often in decent conflicts are sanctuaries. “What makes this attack more confounding is the fact that Ozubulu is far removed from any known theatre of conflict at the moment and has had little or no history of violent conflict.
“Whatever may have been the situation, this attack represents a descent into the pit of hell. It is animalistic, cowardly and shameful and all necessary steps should immediately be taken by security forces to bring the perpetrators to book”.
He further sent the heartfelt condolences of the Congress to the families of the victims, the Catholic Church, Governor Willie Obiano and the people of Anambra State.
Wabba urged the security agencies to step up security in and around places of worship and similarly urged worshippers to take the initiative of securing their premises.
