Suicide Bomber Attacks Nigeria Church, Three Killed

Ad Feedback

Muslim terrorists bombed the headquarters for the Church of Christ in central Nigeria Sunday, killing three people and wounding 38.

Boko Haram, the radical Islamic group terrorizing northern Nigeria, claimed responsibility for the attack.

A suicide bomber ran down a woman as he drove the bomb-laden car towards the church compound during church services.

"Those who seek to divide us by fear and terror will not succeed. The indiscriminate bombing of Christians and Muslims is a threat to all peace-loving Nigerians," President Goodluck Jonathan said in a statement condemning the attack.

A spokesman for the Boko Haram told reporters in a conference call that the sect was also responsible for burning down a primary school in Maiduguri, its spiritual home, as a warning to security agencies not to invade Islamic schools.

"Our attacks have no distinction on any person, be him Muslim or Christian," the spokesman said. "For as long as they stand against us and our cause, their blood is legitimate to be shed."

The radical Islamic group has launched increasingly bloody attacks across Nigeria, including ones on churches.
