Bloody massacre at St. Philip's Catholic Church leaves at least 11 dead
At least 11 people are dead after a gunman opened fire during Mass at the St. Philip Catholic Church in southeastern Nigeria early Sunday.
This deadly massacre has left many wondering why them.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - No one group has claimed responsibility for the violent and cruel attack that left around 18 others wounded. The attacker's motive remains unknown.
Uche Nonoso, a parishioner, told the Associated Press there were two gunmen and more than 15 people were killed. According to the Christian Post, the victims were mostly children and elderly.
Pope Francis sent a message to Bishop Hilary Odili Okeke of Nnewi in honor of those affected by the deadly incident. He stated he was, "deeply saddened to learn of the loss of life and injury following the violent attack."
According to the Catholic Herald, although the suspect has not been caught, the authorities believe this was not the work of Boko Haram, but rather a young businessman "involved in a drug deal gone wrong."
Rev. Hygi Aghaulor expressed the community is praying for the injured and Pope Francis has extended his "heartfelt condolences."
Join us in praying for the injured, deceased and all the family affected by this great tragedy.
