The explosion was reportedly caused by a car bomb which was detonated in front of the church inside the military barracks. “A car drove into the church premises … then detonated the bomb” at around 1145GMT, a military officer told the Reuters news agency, asking not to be named.

The attack took place after the church service had ended there.

An official of the National Emergency Agency (NEMA) in Abuja, Mr Yushau A. Shuaib, has confirmed the explosion. He said, “NEMA rescuers have been alerted to an explosion at a military formation in Kaduna state today and likely at a worship centre.”

Five persons have been reportedly killed with dozens injured by the explosion.
