Reports coming in indicate that a suicide bomber has hit St. Rita Catholic Church at Ungwar Yero area of Kaduna metropolis, Kaduna State.

The attack which seriously injured the Reverend Father in the church was reported to have happened earlier this morning during the Catholic mass

Eyewitnesses told newsmen that a lone car bomber approached the church gate hoping to quietly drive into the church before exploding the bomb but the security men at the gate reportedly refused him entry.

The bomber then reversed his car and rammed it forcefully against the gate of the church, the gate caved in as the bomb exploded injuring several churchgoers.

Security agents have cordoned off the area while reports say Kaduna State government officials are trying their best to calm frayed nerves who are threatening reprisals attacks over the continuous incidents of suicide bombing from groups suspected to be affiliated to the deadly Islamic group, Boko Haram.

It is not sure the number of casualties affected in the bomb blast. We shall be bringing you more details as we get them.

  8. If all boko haram want is their own government. Why not give them the state they claimed to be theirs, and give them some few time to settle down, after which Nigeria government can take vegence for the lost life of her citizen. After all they are animals in human nature, what kind of believe is this? Can this believe be from another allah apart from the Most High Allah in heaven? It baffles my immaginations and rendered me speechless.
