Area of the state.

A statement issued on Thursday by the state Police Public Relations
Officer, ASP Nkeiruka Nwode, said that 500 rank and file officers have
been deployed for the burial of Bishop’s father.
The 75-year-old community leader was one of the 13 persons killed
while scores of others sustained varying degrees of injuries when
unknown gunmen invaded Saint Philip’s Catholic Church, shooting
sporadically at worshippers.
