Nigeria blasts: Eleven dead at Kaduna barracks church

November 25, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Suicide bombers have attacked a church inside a military barracks in Kaduna state in northern Nigeria, killing 11 people and injuring 30, officials say.
 
A military spokesman told the BBC two vehicles were driven into the barracks in Jaji in what he described as “surprising and an embarrassment”.
 
It is not clear who was responsible for the attack.But the army suspects Islamist militant group Boko Haram, which has recently targeted churches in the state.
 
The group is fighting to overthrow the government and impose an extreme form of Sharia, or Islamic law.
 
On Friday, Nigeria’s military offered a reward of 50m naira ($317,000; £197,709) for help in tracking down suspected Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, and 10m each for other suspected leaders of the group.
