A witness said some gunmen, who concealed their identities with masks, broke into the church around 6am when the first mass service was holding.

NAN quoted a witness as saying after they gained entry, the gunmen identified a particular man whom they shot.
He said the gunmen then went on rampage and “shot at the remaining worshippers numbering over 100”.

The source reportedly said some worshippers who were critically injured died on their way to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital in Nnewi, the state capital.

Security personnel have cordoned off the church, which has since been deserted by worshippers.

Willie Obiano, governor of the state, Garba Umar, commissioner of police in Anambra, have visited the scene of the attack.
