Armed men today struck at the Assemblies of God Church during service on the Oguta road axis of Onitsha, Anambra State,this time killing one policeman and a civilian.

This is coming one week after gunmen attacked St Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu killing and injuring no fewer than 50 persons. 

Although the attack wasn't directed at worshippers as in the Ozubulu case, some lives were lost including that of security personnel.

An eyewitness said, the gunmen had momentarily stopped at the Assemblies of God Church, but on sighting some policemen at the church, opened fire on them. “When the firing became too hot, the policemen abandoned their patrol vehicle and ran away for safety.
“The gunmen moved to their patrol van and took a gun belonging to the policeman they killed.
“I saw two of the gunmen but I can’t say how many they are in number."

A second eyewitness confirming the story to Sahara Reporters said “Gunmen on Okada shot a policeman and collected his rifle. They also shot dead an Okada man while escaping, and the passenger he was carrying was injured. The policeman was the one armed among his colleagues; they were providing security while church service was going on at Assemblies of God Church, Oguta road Onitsha."

The Commissioner of Police, Anambra State, Mr Garba Umar has confirmed the incident to journalists.
