The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the attack on worshippers at St. Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu, Anambra State, which has resulted in over 10 deaths and other casualties.

In a statement signed by the Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Dayo Adeyeye, the PDP expressed bewilderment over the gruesome incident, describing it as barbaric and sacrilegious.

PDP said the attack makes clear that country is fast disintegrating into a state of anomie with total moral collapse.

The opposition Party, however, advised the federal government put in more efforts in the area of protection of lives and property.

The statement reads: “the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) is shocked to receive the news of a gunman attack in the early hours of this morning at St. Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, killing and injuring several worshipers.
