Gunmen numbering about 5 invaded St Philips Catholic Church, Amakwa Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area, Anambra state and killed many worshippers. Reports say 50 people were killed but Police said only 12 died and 18 seriously injured.

According to an eyewitness, the gunmen invaded the church around 7:30 am today, Sunday, August 6th, 2017

    Coexistance with muslims is not possible. It’s us or them. I choose us. Notice this didn’t happen in the Central African Republic? The’ve cleansed their land of these demon possessed paleo-Nazis.

    Little attention to this story in the media. But what we did get all day was that mosque bombing in the states, and of course islamophobia is running rampant in North America.

    • If that incident turns out to be bunk, what is the total time to disappears from the news cycle?

      I say an hour.

    Christians will HAVE to cease to exist in order to do so.
    ….and the Muslims supposedly tolerate christians…what do they do to those they hate….
