The police in Anambra state says two suspected mastermind of the August 6th massacre at the St. Phillips Catholic Church in Ozubulu in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra state, have confessed to the crime and have also vowed that there will be more attacks if their financial demands to certain persons are not met.
At a press conference in Awka the state capital, the state police commissioner, Garba Umar, said the suspects, Prince Charles Obi ‘AKA’ Gozila and Dickson Nwodi ‘AKA’ Afam, who are both serving jail terms in South Africa, mandated one Quintus Anayo (alias Obasanjo) based in South Africa to come to Ozubulu and inform the elders of the town of this threat.
The command vowed to ensure that all identified perpetrators are brought to book. Three of the suspects in custody are to be arraigned within this week on charges of Conspiracy and Murder with other suspects at large. The command has also contacted INTERPOL to help in the possible extradition of some suspects based in South Africa, that have also claimed responsibility for the attack on the Church.
Recall that after the sad incident occurred, there were speculations that the clash occurred as a result of a fallout in business between two Nigerian drug barons based in South Africa.
