The Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano has said that despite the killings at the St Patrick's Catholic Church in Ozubulu, his state remains the safest state in the country.

Obiano made this known in Abuja while speaking with journalists after he submitted his nomination form for a second term in office.

Obiano said: “We can’t use that singular incident to judge the state. We have stopped kidnapping, assassinations and all that in the state. So, whichever way you look at it, we remain a safe state.”

On Friday evening, the governor had announced that the police in the state led by Umar Garba, have found a lead to unravel the individuals behind the church shootings that left many dead and scores injured.
