This morning gun men entered the home town of Ozubulu, precisely at St Philip’s Catholic Church, Amakwa Ozubulu opened fire and killed several worshippers.
St Philip’s is reputed as a purposed built architectural masterpiece, a luxurious place of worship consecrated about two years ago by the Catholic Bishop of Nnewi Most Rev Dr Odili Okeke.
