Bomb blasts hit churches in Northern Nigeria, igniting retaliation
June 17 , 2012

EWCA Church in Wassa area of Zaria and CKC Church in Sabon Gari, Kaduna State, Northern Nigeria were attacked on Sunday by suicide bombers.

According to eye-witnessesí accounts, one of the suicide bombers dressed disguised as a woman, while the others came in with bombed-planted cars and guns; 3 people have been reported dead with many injured.

The attack has sparked up reprisal attacks leaving many injured. The Governor of Kaduna State is said to be on the verge of imposing a 24-hour curfew on the area to curb the violence.

Although no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, Boko Haram, an insurgent Islamic militant group started in 2002 by its late founder Mohammed Yusuf, has claimed responsibility for numerous killings and attacks in Northern Nigeria.

Those injured have since been rushed to a nearby hospital.
