'The church is no longer safe', Twitter user narrates harrowing experience

Chidelb who witnessed the attack during a morning mass expressed that the assailants removed a man from the church.

This brought to her mind a sad memory that saw father kidnapped and killed in December 2012.

Her immediate concern during the attack at the place of worship was if she was going to survive the attack which caused a stampede as some Christians tried to flee for their lives.

It made her question if the church should still be regarded as a place offering safety. She expressed hope concerning the freedom of the man who had to endure a grave amount of pummeling as he was being dragged off the premises into their getaway vehicle.

Violence in churches is becoming rampant

A similar incident of a recorded attack at a Christian worship center occurred in August 2017, at the St. Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu, Anambra State where some assailants killed 13 persons and injured 27 others according to a report filed by Sahara Reporters.

Other members of the church who attempted to flee from the attack were killed as gun bullets were directed at them by the trouble mongers.

Another occurrence trained the event the following week at the Assemblies of God Church located on the Oguta Road, Onitsha, Anambra State.
