The Nigerian Police Force says suspects behind the Sunday attack at the Saint Philip’s Catholic Church Ozubulu, Anambra State have been arrested.

The Commissioner of Police in the, Garba Umar, made this known while addressing newsmen on Monday.

According to him, the number of arrest would not be disclosed so as not to jeopardise ongoing investigation into the massacre of 11 persons by unknown gunmen.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has condemned what it called “cocktails of rumour mills instigated by the Anambra State Police Commissioner Baba Garba Umar and Governor Willy Obiano on the causes of the Sunday morning mass murder at the Saint Philip’s Catholic Church Ozubulu, Anambra State.”

HURIWA, in a statement Monday by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, called for a detailed inquiry into what he described as the dastardly criminal act of premeditated killings of scores of worshipers in Ozubulu.

The group demanded the convocation of a judicial commission of inquiry made up of top federal judicial officers, and credible senior lawyers and civil society leaders to uncover the remote and immediate causes of the early morning killings.
