July 27, 2014 – At least five people were killed on Sunday when members of the radical Islamic sect Boko Haram bombed worshipers at Saint Charles Catholic Church, Kano State, just few days after attacking a popular bus park in Kano.
Members of the sect according police sources threw the improvised explosive device at worshipers as they were leaving a church in Nigeria’s main northern city of Kano.
The BBC reported that a young female suicide bomber also wounded five police officers as she rushed towards them and blew herself up in a separate incident.
While confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Frank Mbah said the suicide bomber, a 16 year old girl, blew up herself as soon as she was isolated for search by a female police officer. He said the wounded police officers are doing well in the hospital.
We gathered that activities scheduled to mark the Eid festival in Kano were cancelled as a result of the incidents.
