Bomb blast rocks ECWA church in Niger

Just Twenty Four hours after the blast that claimed four lives and injured others at All Christian Fellowship Mission Church, Suleja, another exploded at Ecwa Church in Madalla town, near Suleja.

The blast exploded at 8:30 p.m. on Monday, on the day the Acting Governor, Alhaji Ahmed Ibeto, led a government delegation and security agents to Suleja to assess the incident.

The bomb exploded near the fence of the Ecwa Church, Madalla, shortly after an unknown man was sighted by a woman near the fence.

Shortly after, residents of the area attempted to interrogate the man, but he ran away, after which the bomb exploded. It was  gathered that the explosive was planted in the fence of the church.

No life was, however, lost while there were also no casualties except for the serious panic which the blast caused in the area. Shop owners closed immediately  after the blast.

The state Police Command Spokesman, ASP Richard Oguche, confirmed the story, adding that the explosive must have been buried close to the church.
