In Biu in Borno state, gunmen opened fire on a church, spraying the congregation with bullets and killing and wounding many of them, witnesses said.
“Three gunmen came to the premises of the church and started
firing at people outside the church before going into the main building
to carry on their killings … Many people have been killed and wounded,” said a witness, Hamidu Wakawa, who was at the church.
Police said they have not yet received any information about the attack.
It would be recalled that a suicide bomber attacked some churches in
Bauchi state last Sunday killing 12 people and injuring about 35 others.
Indeed another sad Sunday. May the souls of the departed Rest In Peace.
