Full story:

Hell was let loose in the early hours yesterday

at Oba-Ofemmili community in Awka-North

Local Government Area of Anambra State, when

some youths, suspected to be cultists attacked

Christians in their worship places, shot and

inflicted machete wounds on over 50 of them.

Assemblies of God, Deeper Life, Winners,

Catholic Church, 3 thers affected.

The attackers also went on rampage, looting

and burning churches in the community. Some

of the churches burnt include Assemblies of

God Church, Grace of God Church, Deeper Life

Bible Church, Winners Church, Christ Holy

Church, St. Paul’s Catholic Church and another

pentecostal church.

The assailants, according to the victims,

attacked the worshippers with dangerous

weapons, shooting sporadically and wounding

several people. They were said to have invaded

no fewer than seven churches, burning and

destroying everything within their reach.

A two-year old baby was among the victims.

It was gathered that trouble started in the

community over disagreement between the

Christians and the idol worshippers on the

cultural night masquerade, a local fetish cult

opposed by Christians in the area.

A victim of the incident, who gave his name as

Mr Sunday Aliuba, said they were in the church

when the miscreants stormed their church,

armed with guns and machetes. He said they

swooped on the congregation and inflicted

machete wounds on them, causing stampede as

people struggled to escape from the church.

Hear him: “How it happened was that Oba-

Ofemili and the Christians had an agreement

that the night masquerades will not start by

9pm, and we were having our programmes

according to the rules. But on Monday night, I

was at the crusade when we heard that the

pagans will burn down all the churches.

Around 11pm, they started shooting

sporadically into the air, causing everybody to

shiver. Around 1.00am on Tuesday, they

stormed the church, and razed down the parish

priest’s house and pursued everybody in the

church. We hid under the staircase and under

the pews.

“In self-defence, we pounced on some of them.

As it got hotter, my colleagues ran away. I also

ran but they pursued me and shot me in the

legs, shattering my ankles and bones. They also

inflicted machete wounds on me. The blood

that came out of my body can fill two buckets.

It is only God that is sustaining my life till

now.”

When contacted, the priest of St. Paul’s

Anglican Church, whose parish church was

razed, Rev. Pat. Odinanwa, said series of

efforts made to ensure peace in the community

between the church and the community failed.

He said the pagans nursed pathological hatred

for Christians in the community. According to

him, there were agreements reached between

the church and the community, but the pagans

sought all avenues to stop Christians from

worshipping God in the community.

According to him, over 50 persons sustained

gunshot and machete wounds, while seven

churches were burnt by the irate youths. He

said Christians in the area had been living in

fear, as the youths threatened further attack

today.
