At least seven people were killed by gunmen in different parts of Anambra State on Sunday.
Fatima and four children were killed in the Orumba North Local Government Area of Isulo.
Two more people were killed in Idemili North Local Government Area’s Abatete and Orumba North Local Government Area’s Nanka.
CAN demanded justice for the victim of the “unknown gunmen” in a statement released on Wednesday.
CAN President Samson Ayokunle urged security agencies to find the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
Pastor Bayo Oladeji, his spokesman, described the crime as “totally unacceptable, unjustifiable, and reprehensible to all right thinking people.”

He claimed that what is happening in Nigeria is not the dream of those who fought for freedom from colonial masters.
“It’s depressing that nothing is safe anymore.” Killers, bandits, terrorists, and kidnappers are on the loose throughout the country.
“All the government can do is issue periodic condemnations without taking any decisive action to bring the perpetrators to justice.”
IPOB’s violent activities under the guise of fighting for independence have been condemned by CAN.
“Are they fighting for a dead country or a living country?” Their criminal behavior isn’t helping their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.”
The Christian leadership claims that their actions are not only causing a bad name for the Ndigbo, but also creating an environment conducive to ethno-religious conflict.
The body urged Igbo elites, political, religious, and traditional rulers to put an end to the region’s bloodshed and tension.
The statement expressed condolences to the families of those killed, including members of the Anambra House of Assembly, including Okechukwu Okoye.
