Anambra attack: Death toll rises to 13… church releases full list of victims

Names of victims of the deadly attack on St. Philip’s Catholic church, Ozubulu, in Anambra State

The Catholic diocese of Nnewi released the names on Wednesday.

The church was attacked on Sunday by a lone gunman who killed 12 worshippers while 18 others were injured.

While soliciting for funds for the care of the victims, the diocese said it has opened a bank account in that regards.

“Anybody, parish, institution, company, society, association or group that would like to join the diocese in providing assistance to the victims and their families can send their contributions,” the statement read.
