A 'Church of Christ' in the central Nigerian city of Jos was attacked today by a suicide bomber who drove a car packed with explosives into it, killing at least two and wounding 38. This was followed by a riot by Christian youths in which two Muslims died. It is suspected that Islamist group Boko Haram are behind the attacks.
Please pray for the injured and bereaved on both “sides” in this latest atrocity, and that here would be no more violence. Please pray for the youths who rioted. Please remember all our Nigerian brothers and sisters in your prayers in this time of very great uncertainty and confusion in their nation.
