Ad Feedback

Gunmen attacked a church in Nigeria during a prayer service Thursday night, killing at least six people and wounding several others.

Pastor Johnson Jauro of the Deeper Life Church in Gombe said his wife was among those killed.

The attack comes just weeks after a radical Muslim sect, Boko Haram, claimed responsibility for a series of church bombings.
    
Boko Haram, whose name means "Western education is sacrilege," has warned all Christians to leave northern Nigeria.

The country's president, Goodluck Jonathan, has declared a state of emergency in regions of Borno, Niger, Plateau, and Yobe states because of the attacks.
