“This is a very sensitive investigation so you people (journalists) have to help us,” she said.

“As soon as the investigation is concluded, we will let the public know. But as far as I’m concerned, it definitely has nothing to do with terrorists. It’s just a conflict between individuals.”

Governor of the state, Willie Obiano also confirmed the arrest while speaking with journalists.

“We have actually picked up some of the key members,” he said.

“I am confident that we are going to solve this problem and the way we handle it will show them (the perpetrators) that you can’t import your trouble from wherever you are in Africa and bring it to Anambra State.”

The gunman had reportedly invaded the church in search of Aloysius Ikegwuonwu, who lives abroad.
