yesterday, Sunday, August 6, 2017, eight people were killed at the St. Philips Catholic Church in Anambra during a church service.
The police have also confirmed that 18 people were injured in the massacre.
According to the Commissioner of Police, Mr Garba Umar, the person responsible for the bloody act is most likely an indigene of the state.

 “From our findings, it is very clear that the person who carried the attack must be an indigene of the area,” said Umar.
Additionally, he said, “We
gathered that worshippers for 6 o’clock Sunday mass at St. Philip
Ozobulu were in the service when a gunman dressed in black attire
covering his face with a cap entered the church and moved straight to a
particular direction and opened fire.
The man after shooting at his targeted victims still went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding other worshippers.
The commissioner also revealed that the gunman spoke in undiluted Igbo. No arrest has been made yet.
While millions of Nigerians are wondering what could have led to this act of murder in the House of God, a Twitter user @isinmiri claims to know the reason behind it.
 
According
to @isinmiri, the story involves a man named Bishop who was dealing
with drugs in South Africa with the rest of his gang.
Bishop
would leave the gang and take away the gang member’s money. This move
annoyed the gangsters and they took revenge by killing those loyal to
Bishop in Nigeria.
Bishop who had
absconded with the money came back to Nigeria and used some of it to
build the St. Philips Catholic Church allegedly.
Word got back to the gang and decided to strike against Bishop during the Thanksgiving service which was mean to hold today.

Isinmiri
claims Bishop knew about the hit and decided not to show up. His father
and other members of his extended family however attended. Bishop’s
father was among those who were killed today reportedly.
There is no substantial evidence to prove this story from the Twitter user.
According to an earlier report, Umar the attack followed a quarrel between two natives of Ozubulu residing overseas.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
