Kaduna suicide bomb attack on worshipers in Nigeria

 An official of the National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) confirmed that at least 8 people were dead in suicide bomb attack on worshipers at St. Rita's Catholic Church in Ungwan Yero, Kaduna, capital of Kaduna State. The bombed church is within the Malali area of Kaduna, an administrative hub of  Northern Nigeria. NEMA's figure contradicted initial claims by the Kaduna State Police that only the suicide bomber died in the suicide bomb attack. Several survivors who witnessed the bombing also told our correspondent that they saw several dead worshipers after the attack. They also told SaharaReporters that some furious worshipers pursued and killed a few bystanders following the suicide bombing attack.
A security source in Kaduna confirmed that some other people were attacked and killed immediately after the terror attack. The sources said security agents in the city were trying to manage the tense situation in order to avert escalation of reprisal attacks.......Saharareporters
