Death Toll Rises to 8 ( CNN ) ,Others Wounded In Nigeria Gombe Church Attack by Nobody: 10:49pm On Jan 05, 2012
KANO, Nigeria – Gunmen stormed a church in northern Nigeria Thursday and killed six people as they were praying, the pastor said, as an ultimatum from Islamists for Christians in the region to leave expired.

“It was around 7:30 pm (1830 GMT),” John Jauro told AFP of the attack in the city of Gombe.

“I was leading the congregation in prayers. Our eyes were closed when some gunmen stormed the church and opened fire on the congregation. Six people were killed in the attack and 10 others were wounded.”

He said there was confusion as worshippers sought to flee at the Deeper Life Christian Ministry Church.

“The attackers started shooting sporadically. They shot through the window of the church, and many people were killed including my wife,” Jauro told Reuters. “Many of my members who attended the church service were also injured.”

After shielding them while they prayed, they chose to mow us down while we prayed. Agreement indeed!!

is it in kano or in gombe?
all the same it's ad we still have sadistic fools in this country, that will kill for no reasons. I think we christians should be alittle more vigilant. It's about time churches establish their own form of security and arm them if need be. This has to stop and if the govt. won't protect you. Then we should protect ourselves.

Those christians committed suicide and if they are igbos they should be buried in the evil forest, afterall they were warned. I have no pity for them.

@Ogbonaikenna

You're just a sadist who's still stuck up on old idiology. I sure you probably have never been to the north. You clamor for something of the past.
As for me I count them as my brother and i pray for their families. It doesn't matter what tribe they were, so far they are Nigerians. They are my brothers.
And may their souls rest in peace,

this is most disheartening,at a period when all nigerians are united against an unpopular government policy. i hope the partial state of emergency will be extended to Gombe.

I just confirmed that news story on CNN that 6 people have been killed and 10 injured in Gombe state after attacked on a church by Boko Haram Islamic terrorist group.

In the long run, it boils down to this:

Here is a country where even if you informed secu.rity agents of a targeted threat against your congregation, you'd be made fun of (you need to pay extra ca.sh for poli.ce services).

If you cannot guarantee your safety (with arm.ed secu.rity) one way or another, do not open church. Know thy members also. These hoodlums took advantage of a small church.

We will continue to pray and keep solace in God, believing that what has a begining must surely have an end.

Its a shame, instead of these punk-azz morraphuckers uniting against Boko-Haram, they are busy crying about subsidy.

I'm not suprised, afterall the 3 days ultimatum has expired. I expect upsurge in the attack. This is just the begining!

My God is every where he is omnipotent. He doesn't need me to fight for him of in his name.
That's his job.

Victory over death.

Salmoneus does not deserve a reply.

Mockers and scoffers will always be with us !

@yiladogo

Your God needs to fight for you because you are helpless and he's not doing that because he doesn't exist. Perhaps he exist only in your hallucinating mind!

You seem to live on a different planet.

Soldiers and Policemen are getting killed and you are here scoffing at Christians.

What they need to do is get out of there, ALL OF THEM.
Re: Death Toll Rises to 8 ( CNN ) ,Others Wounded In Nigeria Gombe Church Attack by martinseme: 2:15am On Jan 06, 2012
nigerian christians should wake up to the reality on ground.All should be aware that every single northern muslim is very much in support of boko haram.No matter their utterances they support them since the demand of boko haram is so much in line with islamic satanic injuction of all none believers are to be wiped out or subjugated.The president is making the wost mistake in thinking this would ever fizzle out.We must raise to defend our rights to life and worship or have accepted to become the slaves of a parasitic and downtroden people(hausa/fulani).Christians raise up and defend your life or be ready to be enslaved.The rest of the world is watching to know if christian are alive in nigeria.
