11 people dead and 18 others wounded in Ozubulu church shooting

At least 11 people have been killed in a gun attack on a church in southern Nigeria, police say. Up to 18 other worshippers were wounded in the early morning incident at the church in Ozubulu near the city of Onitsha. There were conflicting reports over whether the attack was carried out by a lone gunman or a group of attackers. Police said the shooting was the result of a feud between Nigerians from Ozubulu who were living abroad. Anambra State Police Commissioner Garba Umar said the violence could be linked to drug-trafficking. He said the gunman had been hired to kill a local man who was believed to be in St Philip’s Catholic Church. One of the Nigerian expatriates involved in the feud had built the church, Umar added in a statement.
