Suicide bombers attack church in Nigerian military barrack

Two suicide bombers targeted a church inside a military barrack in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing an unspecified number of people and injuring several others as worshipers were returning after a mass. Eyewitnesses said the attack occurred at St Andrews Military Protestant Church located inside Armed Forces Command and Staff College in Jaji.

A military officer said on condition of anonymity that the casualty figure is likely to be ‘really high’ as the bombing happened immediately as the church was closing. "The first bomber denoted his explosive inside the church and after the initial confusion was just settling and folks had started gathering to think of helping out, the second bomber exploded his car right in the midst of intending first aiders and survivors of the first (blast) who were rushing out," he said.
