BREAKING NEWS: Massive Car Bomb attack hits Catholic Church In Jos

At least three people have been confirmed dead and many others injured on Sunday following a suicide car bomb attack at St. Finbar’s Catholic Church in Rayfield Part of Jos.

Reports have it that the explosion occurred in the middle of service at the Church.

“It was a suicide bomb. The lone suicide bomber attacked the church when the service was on.

“Many worshippers were hit and they were being feared dead.” An eyewitness said.

Emergency officials were assisting the victims at St Finbar’s church in the Rayfield area, a spokesman for the national emergencies agency said.

Three people were confirmed as dead – in addition to the bomber – and several others were in a critical condition, spokesman Yushau Shuaib said.

“The bomb exploded before he could get to the church,” Shuaib added.

The car bomb attack ignited a spontaneous riot in the Plateau, the Jos State capital.

Eye witnesses claim that the shock from the powerful blast pierced the church and brought down a section of its roof.

Although no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, suspicion would most certainly fall on the dreaded Boko Haram sect as the sect has claimed responsibility for such attacks.

Two weeks ago, Boko Haram carried out a similar suicide car bomb attack at a church in Jos, killing three people and injured about 40.

Policemen have cordoned off the area around the church.

Rayfield is a Government Reservation Area, harbouring the state Government House and residents of  many serving and retired public officers.
