Gunned down as they fled…
(ABC) –Police say at least 15 people have been killed in an attack on a church service at a Nigerian university in the northern city of Kano.
Explosions and gunfire rocked Bayero University, with witnesses reporting that two church services were targeted as they were being held on campus.
One of the services was being held outdoors, while the second was inside a building, but with an overflow audience outside, witnesses said.
Officials were unable to confirm casualty figures, but one correspondent counted six bullet-riddled bodies near one of the two sites and said other bodies had been seen on a roadside by the university.
Musical instruments and half-eaten meals could be seen at the site of one of the services.
Witnesses said the attackers arrived in a car and two motorcycles, opening fire and throwing homemade bombs, causing a stampede.
They said worshippers were gunned down as they sought to flee.
“They first attacked the open-air service outside the faculty of medicine,” one witness said.
“They threw in explosives and fired shots, causing a stampede among worshippers. They now pursued them, shooting them with guns. … They also attacked another service at the sporting complex.”
Anti-Christian, to the point ofÂ incessant, unrestrained mass slaughter of Christians = Anti-Christ?
You tell me.
