At least 15 people have been killed and 42 injured in a suicide bombing at the Harvest Field of Christ church at Yelwa on the outskirts of Bauchi city in northern Nigeria, today (June 3). Reports on what happened vary, but it seems that the bomb detonated at a police checkpoint outside the church when the bomber's car rammed it -- and the blast caused the building to collapse.
No group has yet been reported as claiming responsibility.
Please pray for the healing and comforting of those injured, the bereaved, the other survivors, and all others effected. Please pray that those responsible would be brought to justice, turn to God, repent of their deeds and come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Please pray for the strengthening and protection of our Nigerian brothers and sisters in this time of very great uncertainty and confusion in their nation.
