Fresh reports have it that two suicide bombers suspected to be Boko Haram members attacked St. Pious Catholic Church in Shuwa, Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State on Sunday.The attackers who detonated their bombs however killed themselves only.
“Boko Haram members targeted our church while the morning mass was going on, but to God’s glory they both exploded before they could access the church”.
“Vigilant Catholic cadet boys on patrol around the church vicinity prevented the bombers from gaining entry into the church, thereby forcing the explosives to detonate before getting to their target.
The Catholic Bishop of Yola Diocese, Most Reverend Stephen Dami Mamza, who confirmed the attack revealed that the church cadets prevented the attackers from doing the damage.
“Catholic cadets stopped them at the main entrance. The bombers arrived 30 minutes into the mass which started around 6am. When they could not access the church, they detonated, but thank God none of the cadets were hurt.
“Only a grandmother and her grandson were shocked by the loud bang, but they have since left the hospital,” he said.
Mamza added that armed military men were immediately drafted to the scene which is just about 30 minutes’ drive to the Sambisa stronghold of the outlawed Boko Haram .
