BoKo Haram Lays Claim To Tripple Xmas Blast

The Boko Haram Islamist sect has claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day explosions in Suleja, Niger state and Jos in Plateau state respectively.

A spokesman for the Boko Haram Islamist sect, Abul Qaqa disclosed that “We are responsible for all the attacks in the past few days, including today’s (Sunday) bombing of the church in Madalla. We will continue to launch such attacks throughout the north in the next few days.”

At least 27 people were killed in the bomb blast on Christmas Day near the St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, Suleja, Niger state. Father Christopher Barde said the explosion happened as the Christmas morning service was ending.

Another twin explosion also rocked the Rikkos area of the Jos city near a church where worshippers were observing Christmas service while the other blast occurred near the Mountain of Fire evangelical church within Jos.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) confirmed the explosions in Suleja and Jos just as rescue and medical attention were on hand.
