Gunmen early Sunday morning attacked St Philips Catholic Church AmaKwa Ozubulu in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra state killing scores of people and wounding several others.

Though 15 people were confirmed dead some people say up to 50 might have been killed.

The victims were participating at the 6am Mass when the trigger happy men invaded the area and blocked the three entrances into the church and began shooting indiscriminately thereby causing commotion.

Governor Willie Obiano has visited the church and the Nnadi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital where over 50 doctors are battling to save lives of the injured persons.
