Ohamadike, who spoke with the Sun said, “We were in the church and I was to handle the second reading. As the first reading was still on, I heard a sound like a thunder.

“I dived under a long form in the church auditorium and from there raised up my head a bit and saw a young man with a fez cap shooting and people ran in all directions for safety in confusion.

“I remained where I was and that was around 5:45am. The Parish Priest removed his cassock and hid at the altar while the gunman continued in the shooting spree.”
