Nigeria; kills 3, 10 injured

USAfrica, Sunday, Feb 26, 2012: The lethal acts of terror against christians in the middle belt of Nigeria took another dimension as a suicide bomber drove into the popular Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN) building in Jos. The attack occurred while the parishioners were in worship/service.

The members of the radical Islamic sect Boko Haram have sustained, as reported here on USAfricaonline.com, almost 50 rounds of violent, terroristic attacks, mainly, against christians and other Nigerians from the southern region of the country. Jos has been a major area of recent conflict between Christians and Muslims especially since the late 1980s. See the following exclusive USAfrica report and insight on Jos:

She told USAfrica multimedia networks in Houston that “These radical Islamic groups in Nigeria’s middle belt and Jos areas have been active in killing even pregnant women and children; including persons whose only crime is that they went to church to pray.  These violent criminals have been killing people and fighting to intimidate the people of Jos because of the strategic location of Jos. Jos has been an overwhelmingly christian town. That’s why the Islamic military leaders in Nigeria moved to create the controversial Jos north local government. It was meant to serve the agenda of the Islamic groups….”
