The Anambra State Council of traditional  rulers has appealed to the Anambra State Government to immediately set up high powered Commission of Enquiry to investigate the immediate and remote causes of church killings in Ozubulu.

They said such commission should be vested with wide powers to thoroughly investigate the immediate and remote causes of the  event and make recommendations.

This is contained in a communiqué released by the Anambra State Traditional Rulers at the end of their monthly meeting held on Tuesday in Awka.

“We are particularly concerned that this criminal act took place during service in a place of worship and is; a most ungodly act and a desecration of the highest order of a dedicated place of worship.

“We condemn in the strongest terms such dastardly and cowardly act of wasting the lives of innocent fellow human beings, and affirm that the Almighty God is the sole giver of life and it is not in the power of any human being to unlawfully waste the lives of others.

“We call on the law enforcement authorities to spare no effort or time in arresting and bringing to justice everyone who was directly or indirectly involved in perpetrating this beastly act,” the communiqué said.
