Jihadists attack church in Kogi and kill worshipers

Christian worshipers

Two Christian worshipers have been confirmed dead in an attack on a church in Kogi State in north-central Nigeria.

Three other worshipers were also injured in the attack at the Celestial Church in Felele.

Survivors said jihadists invaded the church premises late Sunday evening and fired sporadically at the worshippers.

The two persons died in hospital, said William Ovye Aya, the spokesman for Kogi State Command Police, who confirmed the incident.

None of the jihadists were apprehended as police arrived at the scene after the incident.

The attack on the church is the latest in Nigeria where jihadists have attacked numerous churches and killed dozens of Christians.
