The officiating priest, Bishop Michael Anene in his sermon pronounced a curse on the perpetrators of “the dastardly act”. He said that someone must have been behind the death of the children and that whoever did it should expect the grave consequences of his or her action.

He cited several portions of the Bible to buttress his pronouncement, saying “woe betide the killers of the children and it would have been better the person was not born than to have committed the act.”
