According to witnesses account, the male suicide bomber blew himself up outside the Church during the Sunday morning service, with the explosion rocking the entire Church building.
At about the same time, in what seems to be coordinated attacks, unknown gunmen opened fire on a Church in Biu, a town in troubled Borno state.
The gunmen sprayed the congregation with their rifles, wounding yet to be confirmed number of people.
Hamidu Wakawa, an eye witness to the attack in Biu, confirmed the incident saying “three gunmen came to the premises of the Church and started firing at people outside the Church before going into the main building to carry on their killings….. Many people have been killed and wounded” he added .
The Plateau State Commissioner of Police, Emmanuel Ayeni, has also confirmed the explosion in Jos.
Irate youths in Rukuba, have blocked all roads leading to the Church.
More details coming.
