The delegation is made up of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige; Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole; Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister of State for Environment, Mallam Ibrahim Usman Jibril; and the Minister of State for Education, Professor Anthony Anwuka.

He said Osinbajo also commiserated with the families, friends of the victims and the Ozubulu community over the incident and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.

"Such barbaric act constitutes an affront to our common humanity and it challenges, but will not overwhelm our collective resolve to rid our communities of all forms of violent crimes and criminality", he said.

The Federal Government says it will come up with security plans that will guarantee the safety of lives and property in worship centres across the country.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has promised readiness to sponsor any of the victims whose case is beyond the NAUTH to handle for treatment overseas.

Former Aviation Minister, Senator Stella Oduah has condemned last week attack on St Phillips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Anambra state describing it as godless.

The delegation will also visit Bishop Hilary Okeke of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nnewi, and the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital also in Nnewi to meet with some of the victims of the attack still in the hospital.

"Going round the wards, we noticed that the medical team in the hospital are on top of the situation. The family of those who lost their lives, hospitalized and incapacitated, including one man from Ebonyi State whose wife died in the melee, such people, for sure, would need assistance", he added.
