First Hand Information On What Happened At Anambra State
Today, As Ejike Ofoegbu Arrived Anambra From Aba
Please over look the police report, Ejike Ofoegbu said, Loveth Gift narrated
"We all were in the church during the 6am morning mass
today, we saw two cars that drove into the church; because it
was a Church premises we over looked it and we considered
them to be people that came for morning mass(service). But
to the surprise of everyone, the car halted at the center of
the gate, meaning you cannot close the gate, since it is open
"The driver came out of the car pretending he was fixing a
problem; so everyone still ignored the drama happening
outside the premises.
"Suddenly, some men came out from the car, fully armed,
all in Army uniform. I was lucky because I was sitting at the
back, just beside the door, but I was clearly seeing what was
happening. The sky was cloudy and everywhere seemed
dark; no one saw what they were carrying, whether it was
gun, but surely they were fully equipped.
"They immediately rushed to the front door. I was too lucky
to jump the fence, but before I had jumped, I heard gun
shot everywhere in the building. They obstructed the front
gate, because for women that is their only route to escape.
That was why women were killed more than men. Children
were killed as well, many were seriously injured.
"After I had escaped, I started making calls to link my church
members who were in the church, but they were not picking
up; not knowing they were dead already.
The gun men were not igbos, because their language were
not igbo, the government should stop lying, I heard they
said That, they gun Men were flashing touch light on us, but
it a lie, because the whole church was so lighted that even
from outside you will see who is inside. Even at that, if they
were really flashing touch light to know who is their target,
those that were killed, are they their target.
Like I said before and I will say it again, I was at the back
door, I saw all that happened, they were with Army uniform,
face covered, standing at the Front door, holding their
trigger, and shooting at anything that moves.
When the police came, I was waiting for them to ask
questions of what happened, so that I will explain, but they
were busy taking pictures of the dead ones, without knowing
the fact
"Not too long after they had gone, I went back to the church.
I was shocked with what I saw; my Mother was lying dead!
Many people were unconscious but later succumbed to
"After about one hour of the killings, the Police arrived the
church. Two hours later, the Governor, Willie Obiano arrived
too. Everyone was shocked, wandering how the perpetrators
stormed in Army uniform. Questions began to arise: "Who
gave them the Army uniform?" Who gave them the Army
Surely jihad is here, and everyone have to defend him/her
A woman who still survived the mayhem said, "All I could
remember is that I was sitting at the front when some
people in Army uniform invaded the Church and started
shooting at everyone. They just held the trigger and fired at
everyone they sighted. I managed to hide under the seat but
was shot in the leg.
"A boy was shot in head, his brain bursted, and blood spilled
everywhere - even at my face."
Ejike Ofoegbu.
