    NIGERIA: Car Bomb in Kaduna Near Church; At Least 16 Dead, 35 Critically Injured

    Updated April 9th

    A car bomb exploded along a busy roadway in Kaduna, northern central Nigeria on Sunday (April 8th). There are least 16 dead and injured and 35 critically injured, mainly other road users and passers-by. The car, which was being pursued by police, appears to have been heading towards a church (All Nations Christian Assembly Church) where an Easter communion service was in progress. The church's windows and doors were blown out, and some equipment was damaged. Reuters report that the suspicious car collided with another and exploded. No group has yet claimed responsibility.

    Sources: AP, Reuters, BBC, Ascology News (Nigeria), WorldStage News Online (Nigeria)

    Please pray for the injured and bereaved and all others involved in this latest atrocity in Nigeria. Please pray that those responsible would repent of their deeds and turn to God. Please remember all our Nigerian brothers and sisters in your prayers in this time of very great uncertainty and confusion in their nation.

    Thanks,

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
