Islamist Suicide Attacks Kill 26 Nigerian Christians
At noon on Friday 29th January, a suicide bomber suspected to have been sent by the Islamic extremist Boko Haram group detonated explosives in a crowded market in Gombi, Adamawa state, killing at least eight people, sources said, Morning Star News informed.
Boko Haram, which seeks to impose sharia (Islamic law) throughout Nigeria, has continued to carry out terrorist attacks since losing territory to the Nigerian military last year.
“Some members of our church who escaped the attack in the market said they saw eight dead bodies, while about 28 others were injured,” the Rev. Bitrus Njidda, pastor of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (EYN) in the town, told Morning Star News.
The Red Cross reported eight persons killed and 25 wounded in the bombing, said to have been carried out by a teenage boy.
