The Commissioner of Police in Anambra, Mr Garba Umar, on Wednesday, unmasked two suspects behind the invasion and killing of 18 worshipers at St. Philip Catholic Church, Ozubulu.

The suspects, Prince Charles Obi a.k.a Gozila and Dickson Nwodi are, according to the police, serving murder sentences in South African prisons.

The police commissioner disclosed that Obi and Nwodi, who hailed from Nnobi and Oba communities of Anambra, had mandated one Quintus Anayo who also based in South Africa, to inform Ozubulu elders that they were behind the invasion.

Umar revealed that the account on Anayo was in line with the investigation of police into the matter.

Consequently, the police had at the moment established contact with Interpol on the need to extradite the suspects from South Africa to Nigeria.

He said that police in the state were already intensifying arrangements to arraign the three suspects earlier arrested in connection with the killings within the week.

Umar thanked the public for the information to which he attributed the successes already recorded by police in the investigations.

Police and the state government had blamed the invasion and killings on the drug war.
