The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned Sunday’s attack at St. Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, describing  it as barbaric and sacrilegious.

The PDP made this kwown in a statement issued by Mr Dayo Adeyeye, the National Publicity Secretary, National Caretaker Committee on Sunday in Abuja.

Adeyeye said that the party was shocked to receive the news of the attack that led to the killing and injury of many worshipers.

“This invasion is indeed barbaric, sacrilegious and a serious indication that our society is fast degenerating into a state of anomie with total moral collapse and utter disregard for the sanctity of human life.

“We sympathize with the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano and the entire people of the State; and in particular, worshipers of St. Philips Catholic Church and families of the victims.

“It is also a wake-up call for the government to do more in the area of protection of lives and property.”

He however wished those injured quick recovery; and prayed for the souls of the departed to rest in peace.(NAN)
