Six Killed In A Deeper Life Church In Gombe State

A few days after the terrorist group Boko Haram threatened Christians living in the North, Gunmen attacked a Deeper Life church in Gombe State killing six people including the wife of the pastor and injured ten more.

Nigeria has recently experienced a surge in ethnic and sectarian violence. The government declared a state of emergency in parts of the country.

“The attackers started shooting sporadically. They shot through the window of the church, and many people were killed including my wife,” Mr Jauro told Reuters news agency.

“Many members who attended the church service were also injured.”

No group has said it carried out the attack, but the Islamist sect Boko Haram recently carried out a string of bombings on Christmas Day, including against a church in the capital, Abuja, which killed dozens of people.

There have been unconfirmed reports that Boko Haram has told all southerners – who are mostly Christians and animists – to leave the largely Muslim north.

Earlier on Thursday, two suspected members of Boko Haram were arrested after a father and son were killed in Maiduguri in neighbouring Borno state.
