Car bombs hit church in Nigerian base
Twin car bombs hit a Protestant church in a major military establishment in Nigeria yesterday a month after a church bombing in the same state killed at least seven people and injured more than a hundred others.
The first explosion occurred after a church service in a military barracks in Jaji town in Kaduna state, said national emergency management agency spokesman Yushau Shuaib.
A second blast occurred just outside the church minutes later.
A medic said the church targeted was a Protestant church
Mr Shuaib said the casualties are not yet known.
The attack comes two days after a special military taskforce announced that it would be giving a total of £1.1 million in rewards for information that could led to the arrest of top Boko Haram members.
The twin blasts also came a month after another church was attacked in the city of Kaduna, about 25 miles from Jaji.
