An eyewitness told SaharaReporters on phone that the attack has killed several people including the suicide bomber and guards at the church. “We are still carrying out rescue operation and will speak to you later please.”
Other churches in the area hurriedly closed as security operatives arrived the scene.
The National Emergency Management Agency, which does not have an office in the state, has confirmed the incident, saying it has mobilised response agencies to the scene for rescue and evacuation of victims to hospitals.
