Unusual news popped out of Anambra State on Sunday, August 6, 2017. The State’s long run of good press in security and investment profile was suddenly interrupted with the insane massacres that took place at St Philip’s Catholic Church on this day right in the course of holy mass. Regardless of the casualty figures in dead and injured, the incident is horrific as to ignite both outrage and benumbed silence.
