2 killed in Nigeria church attack


A church attack in Nigeria’s central region has killed two and injured several others, Nigerian police said.

The incident occurred late Sunday when a group of unknown gunmen shot indiscriminately at worshippers attending a program at a Celestial Church of Christ in the Felele area of central state Kogi, said William Ovye-Aya, spokesman of the state’s police in the state capital, Lokoja on Monday.

Ovye-Aya said police responded to an emergency call but found two female worshippers already killed and several wounded others in blood. The gunmen fled the scene when police arrived.

The police official said that they are hunting the attackers and that the victims’ bodies have been deposited in a morgue while the wounded are being treated in a nearby hospital. No arrest has been declared yet.
