The Commissioner of Police in the state, Garba Umar, made a speech concerning the attack.
Garbage Umar said:
“From our findings, it is very clear that the person who carried the attack must be an indigene of the area.
“We gathered that worshippers for 6 o’clock Sunday mass at St. Philip Ozobulu were in the service when a gunman dressed in black attire covering his face with a cap entered the church and moved straight to a particular direction and opened fire.
“The man after shooting at his targeted victims still went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding other worshippers’’.
“The information available to police showed that the attacker was speaking undiluted Igbo Language at the time he was firing at worshippers”.
“Though no arrest had been made but that the police already learnt that the attack followed a quarrel between two natives of Ozubulu residing overseas. It was wrong for the perpetrators of the act to extend their quarrel into the church”.
“such conduct shows the people behind the act do not fear God.’’
