The drug war between indigenes of the Ozubulu caused by mistrust may have claimed 30 lives in South Africa.
The deaths occurred following a collapsed business deal.
The deaths resonated in Ozubulu community in Anambra state when the Catholic Church was attacked leaving more than 13 people dead on Sunday, August 6.
According to the Vanguard, the quarrel among the indigenes of Ozubulu in residing in South Africa was caused by the suspicion among them over failure to keep to business deals.
The theatre of war shifted to Amakwa village, causing last Sunday’s shooting incident at St Philip’s Catholic Church, in which 27 worshippers were also injured.
The shooting took place during 6.00am Mass.
Five of its indigenes were killed this year in South Africa.
Some of the villagers revealed to Vanguard which visited Ozubulu after the Sunday killings.
“In 10 years about 30 people from this place have been killed in South Africa,” a woman who preferred anonymity for security reasons told us.
“It had to do with one deal or the other”, she said.
