Suicide bomber today (Sunday) hit St. Rita Catholic Church in Ungwar Yero, Malali area of Kaduna metropolis.
A rescue official said three people were killed and others wounded in the attack.
But Aminu Lawan, Kaduna Police Public Relations Officer, said there was only one confirmed bomber and that no casualties had yet been confirmed apart from the bomber himself.
Nigerian troops have cordoned off the area while the police and Kaduna state government officials are calming down christian residents in the area to avoid religious confrontations that typically follows such attack in the state.
