12 killed in church attack in Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the Ozubulu Church attack in Anambra State by a yet to be identified gunmen, describing the incident as "an appalling crime against humanity and unspeakable sacrilege".

He said: "This is tragic; the church is a place of refuge to anyone who runs into it, and this wicked, barbaric and mindless bloodletting, shows that something has gone wrong on our psyche".

Nigeria is wracked by insecurity, with Islamist insurgency Boko Haram having killed more than 20,000 people since 2009, sparking one of the world's largest humanitarian crises.

"This morning at about 0620hrs, we received an information that some armed men invaded St. Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu where the presiding priest was conduction an early morning mass", he said.

Russian Federation probe: Grand jury set up, subpoenas issued
The setting up of a grand jury is a significant development in the probe as it could lead to criminal indictments. Officials in Moscow have also denied playing a role in Trump's surprise victory last November.

Police officials described the incident as apparently related to a local dispute, rather than anything carried out by the radical Islamic terrorist movement Boko Haram.

In the immediate wake of the attack, some Nigerian observers wondered if there might have a political subtext to the act, since a Pentecostal church in the state was recently stormed by young protestors objecting to an appearance by a gubernatorial candidate.

He said the gunmen then went on rampage and "shot at the remaining worshippers numbering over 100".
