The injured victims were immediately rushed to local hospitals in the area for treatment.

According to reports, the explosion was close to a church where worshippers had gathered for the Easter celebration, but there was reportedly no damage to the church.

RE @EYEBELLO

Security is everybody's concern. It cannot be left to the security agents alone. There is something fascinating about your postulation. Apart from the fact that the Church in question denied that those caught were their members, why is it that Christians only try to but have so far not succeeded in bombing their own churches? On the other hand, the muslim bombers are always successful in their murderous missions. It is evident that the muslims are more professional in destruction. If the system is rotten, it does not affect the muslims alone. There is no reason for them to get in to this lunatic frenzy of violence. Every problem can be fixed.Others had been NSAs before the current one. Try and find out how much each made. That will serve as a guide in determining how much this one has made.

@ 'LOOK IN THE MIRROR'

An entire religion is blamed when a bomb goes off because violence is the signature of that religion. Those who set off those bombs say they do so as they are enjoined by the creed. Instead of castigating people who speak the truth, why does it not bother you that the same religion is given credit for the preponderance of violence in the world? As at the time I wrote the post you have reacted to, there was a bomb blast in a market in Baidoa, Somalia leading to the loss of at least 13 lives.No single day passes without murderous incidents. Why are such occurrences rare among other religions? If you are truly concerned about your religion's negative portrayal, as presented by those who share the faith with you, then do something about it. You will be as guilty as the terrorists should you refuse to act.

@eyebello

Well i must say the governed are now without a leader then, if our basic right of security can't be provided and people "from all religions" can bomb both Mosques and Churches by there own members e.g. COCIN Bauchi and Jos to mention a few failed attempts. This persistent problem needs to exists to keep us in the North divided for political leverage. Only God knows how much the NSA has made from this crises. ISLAM is always to blame and not the system.....SAD

Look in the Mirror

A bomb goes off and suddenly we all blame an entire religion. Any one that does that is as bad as the culprits.

TO 'EYEBELLO'

No! You have not made me feel bad at all. I feel really good. You see, you are leaving the cause to fight the effect. I was reacting to someone who abused my religion. I have the constitutional and God's given right to do so.
What you call 'bad governance' is not the reason for the descent into the murderous insanity being put up by boko haram. They claim to be acting according to their religious injunction of getting rid of infidels and from what is happening elsewhere in the world one is bound to believe them. What has bad governance got to do with the bombing of churches at a time when Christian worshipers are either attending or leaving service? Bad governance has been around since independence and was the reason for every coup. Why is the reaction taking this barbaric turn now? Boko haram hardly mention 'bad governance' as their raison d'etre. There are civilized ways of dealing with bad governance. To deny the religious overture of boko haram is hypocritical and dangerous.

Re-TO 'BOKO THE XTIAN SLAYER'

I dont think you are a real Christian you could have understood the situation on ground do u even read the holy Bible at all, I dont think so but to make u understand something no religion preaches violence and none advice others to abuse other people's way of life, if a Christian will do something that its not of the Christian way then he is not a Christian or if a Muslim will do something out of the Islamic way he is not of that religion its time we all sit down and face the real problem on ground which is "Bad Governance" when you have all that you need i dont think you will have time saying all that.
Sorry if i make you feel bad but its time we think of the future, and dont allow the few control us.

TO 'BOKO THE XTIAN SLAYER'

If 'Jesus' and Mary Magdalene had children then they did exceedingly better than Muhammad who, in spite of the number of people's wives he took by force, was unable to leave an offspring. It is now common knowledge that your prophet was ravaged by acromegaly which manifested itself in aggression, paranoia and hyper-sexuality but left him impotent. It is a condition which occurs in men aged more than 40 years when the bones start to grow again after having been fused at the end of puberty. That explains his inability to father children after the first set he got from Khaddijah when he was under 40 years. It is also the reason he forbade any depiction of him because a drawing would have shown his deformed features. The koran is where you find prominence being given to gay life. Ghilman in the koran are the eternal young men in paradise for the sexual pleasure of muslim men. Islam is barbaric but it seems cannibalism is now being added to it with 'heads for barbeque or dessert'.

Re-Kaduna Blast

What a shame that some one who called himself/herself a christian would leave a major issue and because u have lived in kaduna be telling Nigerians that the bomb was nt near a church. We are saying that innocent soul christian and muslim are killed and all in the name of a useless God forbidden religion! In the whole world today any where you see a muslim the only thing that would struck your mind is terror. They have forgoten that all the world nuclear war heads are in the Christian dominated countries! There will be a 3rd world war or a pogrom of all muslim nations so the world can be a better place!

Why Do We Have Terror In The World

On a very serious note, going thru these recent events, - have come to a conclusion that where there is light there must be darkness! It is unfortunate that islam as a religion had become a darkness, cancer to the world. Look at Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Algeria, Libya, Nortthern Nigeria all muslim occupied areas have never known peace! Their fore fathers support terrorism and so terror and everlasting punishment will never leave their homes! The blood of innocent people killed with their demonic philosophy shall continue to hunt them and their supporters! God had come down to deliver judgeement upon them

islam,a religion of killers

the common fool that calls himself xtian slayer,i wounder you even went to skul,becos by now u shld hv knwn tht ur false prophet was nothng beyond a local peadophile who sexualy molest minors by deceivng their parents who were as moronic as u.if not hw cn u xplain a situation where an old fool that cals hmself a prophet slept wth a 9yrs old child,a fool who misused women,marrying 11 of them incuding chldren, old women,house helps and his inlow,by now u shld hu bn death 2 received ur 70 virgns-comon idiot,hw do u xpec to get virgns in paradise,what wil b gven to women then or they ar nt human in ur death relgion?how wil u like ur father to skeep wth ur 9yrs daughta jus like ur blood suckng prophet did?hw can u xpec god to dish out virgns in paradise?.where u hav no xtians u kill one another jus tak a luk at pakistan,iran,iraq etc.

SAMBO DASUKI

PLEASE CHECK MY RECORD ON THIS FORUM AND ADDRESS ME BY NAME ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOUND PARENTAL UPBRINGING. I CONSIDER ANYBODY WHO THROWS INSULT ON A POPULAR FORUM LIKE THIS AS NOT AFRAID TO INSULT OTHERS EVEN IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS PARENTS AND ELDERS. THIS COUNTRY IS GOING THROUGH ROUGH TIMES FOR SO LONG AND MANY PARENTS HAVE HAD TO GIVE UP THEIR RESPONSIBILITY OF GOOD UPBRINGING FOR THEIR CHILDREN. SOMETIMES THE GIRLS BECOME PROSTITUTES AND THE FATHER CANNOT HELP IT. IN OTHER CASES THE BOYS BECOME THUGS, ROBBERS OR WORST. THIS IS NO FAULT OF ANY PARENT, IT IS ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF MISGOVERNANCE. YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY PART THE PROBLEM ALL NIGERIANS WILL HAVE TO CONFRONT EVEN WHEN WE HAVE GOOD LEADERS. BUT BY GOD'S GRACE WE WILL GET THERE.

SO FORGIVE ME IF I DONT RESPOND TO YOUR POSTS NOW OR EVER.

@ 'PLS STOP' BY D1

D1, you are the greatest liar of all time. How could you as 'a Christian' have gone to Mecca and visited the kabba? Only muslim pilgrims go to Mecca either for the greater hajj or the ummrah which is the lesser hajj. There are no tourist attractions in Mecca. The only business there is religious. Before any muslim performs the hajj he must be thoroughly vetted and certified starting from the local mosque. Planes are not allowed to overfly Mecca and Medina no matter the altitude. That is how stringent the control is.Let me just ignore the issue of your having seen how 'peaceful Islam is' for that matter has received adequate thrashing in this forum. Your claim of visiting the kabba exposes you as the lying deceitful idiot whose word means nothing. Stop fooling yourself for you are not and can never be a Christian.Your 'peaceful religion' is busy wrecking havoc all over the world on an hourly basis. How many non 'peaceful religions' have such notoriety?

DEATH TO SONs of MARY MAGDALENE d BITCH

Boko haram are even linient on you that curse our beloved prophet and Almighty ever living Allah, he has no son, no wife, no dad or mum, one who created life, and sent Jesus to guide the unrepentant jews, our own jesus never had a bitch mary magdalene that gave birth to d present bloody animalistic and christian faggot men, and devils who hide in churches to fuck their alter boys and self acclaimed Nun bitches..pls tell me how many boys Pope benedick fuckd to be given a rank as POPE, it shd hav been FUCK benedict , stupid lost souls, painful death and fear wil b upon u at ur bro brothels calld churches, where peadophiles priest enjoy d asses of their alter boyz, members wives etc, I love to see and hear xtian blood being spilled evry day, OSITA stop cursing ISLAM or else ur head will b on a platte as barbecue or dessert" FOOL and Worthless creatures"!!

@SAD IBRAHIM; MALLAM LAWAL'S LIMB WAS AMPUTATED IN ZAMFARA

@ SAD IBRAHIM, AGAIN, YOU SOUND VERY PATHETIC AND UNWITTY, YOUR ARGUMENT IS RATHER VERY WEAK AND IS characteristic OF YOUR FOOLISH PROPHET MUHAMMAD WHO WAS ALWAYS MAKING EXCUSES TO KILL AND RAPE INNOCENT PEOPLE. YOU AND YOUR FELLOW ALMAJIRI GOONS ARE ALWAYS PASSING YOUR MISERY ON JEWS, USA AND CHRISTIANS. HOW MANY MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES OCCUPYING AS YOU IMPLIED? EVEN IN PALESTINE, HAMAS HAS KILLED MORE PALESTENIAN THAN ISREAL; MUSLIMS IN ISREAL ARE THE MOST HAPPIEST IN THE ARAB WORLD. IRAQ AND AFGANISTAN ARE BETTER OFF TODAY THAN UNDER SAD HUSSEIN AND TALIBAN. YOU ARE JUST A PATHETIC LIER LIKE YOUR PROPHET MUHAMMAD; SHARIA HAS BEEN ENTHRONED IN ALL CORE NORTHERN STATES DURING OBASANJO'S REGIME. HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN THAT THE LIMB OF MALLAM LAWAL WAS AMPUTED IN ZAMFARA FOR STEALING A COW, WHAT LAW WAS USED? BOKO IS HARAM, ALLAH FORBIDS IT, SO, IN YOUR NEXT COMMENT, PLEASE DO USE ARABIC, REMEMBER THAT ARABIC IS THE ONLY LANGUAGE ALLAH UNDERSTANDS.

calm

pls Government of Nigerian, find solution to this mass killing, if using force is not working pls find another means. Don't dillydaily find immidate solution pls & pls

SHOW US THE PROOF OSITA.

NAME ONE STATE USING SHARIA IN NIGERIA TODAY. YARADUWA USED ALL AVAILABLE MEANS AT HIS DISPOSAL TO SOLVE THE N/D MILITANT CRISIS INCLUDING THE USE OF S/S ELDERS, TELL ME WHICH NORTHERN ELDER DID GEJ CONSULTED TO HELP IN THE RESOLUTION OF THE BOKO HARAM PROBLEM? THERE A LOT OF MUSLIMS UP IN ARMS AROUND THE WORLD TODAY, BUT FOR MOST YOU WILL FIND A CHRISTIAN NATION OCCUPYING THEIR COUNTRY. WHEN AN AMERICAN SOLDIER ENTER A FAMILIES HOME AT NIGHT AND KILL 9 PEOPLE INCLUDING 6 CHILDREN YOU DONT CALL THAT CHRISTIAN TERRORISM EVEN THOUGH DONALD RUMSFELD AND BUSH BOTH CALL THE WAR ON TERROR A CRUSADE. YOU SEE MUSLIMS HAVE NO MEGA WEAPONS OF MASS BRAINWASHING LIKE THE FORMIDABLE WESTERN MEDIA. FRANCE JUST KILLED A SUSPECT THAT THEY LINK TO ALQAIDA, BUT WHEN 4 MORE PEOPLE WERE KILLED PROVING THAT AT LEAST THEY DID NOT KILL THE RIGHT PERSON, THEY NOW ADMIT THAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A SERIAL KILLER, MOST LIKELY NON-MUSLIM. MANY HAVE THEIR MINDS HIJACKED AND THEY HAVE NO IDEA, OSITA.

The Pope on Muhammad

The Pope had previously served as professor of theology at the university, and his lecture was entitled "Faith, Reason and the University – Memories and Reflections". The lecture contained in the quotation by the Pope of the following passage:
Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.

@IBRAHIM SAAD: A MAN IN DENIAL

Ibrahim,your denial of sharia law in the north is cowardly,your denial of the fact that the Yar'adua administration used the community leaders of the Niger-delta to restrain the MEND is dishonest,your denial of islamic terrorism(jihad/infidel mentality) as a global phenomenom is silly.
For your information traditional rulers are a part of the security apparatus,they can be called upon to assist in keeping the peace,some of them recieve security briefings and even intelligence briefings as the case maybe.The feudal system in the north makes it a unique case,remember sharia does not allow a man to go into the compound of a family even during census,we have to rely on the figures given by the head of the family.The president has his limits,if the leaders in the north are self destruct.

Ignorant

You won't understand untill God opens your eyes. And I pray one day your eyes will be open in Jesus name

Northen Leaders

If the northern leaders are sincere to them selves they should have put an end to this nonses they are sponsors. I am from the north but I don't like what they are doing. Nigeria is for all of us. anybody can rule as far as you are a Nigerian. The killed all the companies in the north and now they are coming to struggle to come rule. Is not possible . I pray God Almighty will crush them down to their generation

Northern Leaders are to be BLAME

If the northern leaders are sincere to them selves they should have put an end to this nonses they are sponsors. I am from the north but I don't like what they are doing. Nigeria is for all of us. anybody can rule as far as you are a Nigerian. The killed all the companies in the north and now they are coming to struggle to come rule. Is not possible . I pray God Almighty will crush them down to their generation

Goverment should repent

Government of Nigeria is sincere to them self. they are the cause of all this things. and God will deal with them and the blood of people is on their head

Rejoinder to I feel u real good bro

Indeed Muhammad (SAW) is true and Most Loving Messenger of Allah and Surely God is not a joke. But because you are a fool that's why you'll never understand. Do you know those guys killing christians due not spare the sons of Ishmael as well? All the killing and destruction is taking place in the land of the sons of Ishmael and it is the sons of Ishmael that always took the heavy casuality. If you are wise use your brain and think and for God sake stop abusing other peoples religion.

May God help us all. The

May God help us all. The peace &unity of this great country is not negotiable. United we shall remain. We must all learn to speak with one voice in condeming evil and appreciating good deeds. God bless d good pple of this country whilst we pray that d few bad ones will see reasons to join hands in taking our country to next level (positively).

I never thought your types were still in existence, in this age. Get your facts straight before opening your mouth.

insult to Prophet Muhammad

I don't blame you, I believe it's lack of education about Islam and the animosity you have against Islam that made you to insult our Prophet. You are as stupid, selfish and ignorant as the people who perpetrate these attacks. You are both enemies of Islam. You can both continue your disgruntled attitude and attack against Islam, but you will not succeed. Islam will continue to wax stronger despite the crime these people commit who hide under its name, and bigots like you who knows that these people are truly fighting Islamic course, but cease the opportunity to insult Islam and Prophet Muhammad. The truth will surely prevail at the end.

My brother you should stop portraying your ignorance by insulting other people religion,prophet and even their holy book which is our doctrine and our guidance.This is not in line with want prophet jesus d son of mary teaches.we people of d north we condem this this evil is not d teaching of our religion.when u abuse other pple belief or feace on their book what wil u benefit?may God come 2 our rescue.amin

May the Blood of Jesus save us from the hands of the wicked

May the risen Lord we celebrate in this Easter season shed the light of the Holy Spirit in the life of moslem brothers and Sisters so that they acknowledge and accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour. The Word of God make us understand that without Jesus we cannot see God,He is he truth,the way and the light.

Kaduna Blast

Please as true Christians lets always speak the truth. I am quite familiar with Kaduna 'cos I was born and brought up there. The seen of that bomb explosion is not close to any church. Please allow the muslims a breathing space, 'cos your reports these days tends to be propaganda against the muslims. Please lets give peace a chance. If you Saharareporters continue with this kind of reporting, you are bound to instigate religious violence in the North and the country at large.
