Latest attack on Nigerian church kills at least 3

At least three people were killed Sunday in the latest attack on Christian churches in Nigeria.

Police said a car packed with explosives rammed into the compound of the Cocin (Church of Christ) headquarters in Jos, police said.

Some church members emerged from the scene covered in dust.

It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the attack.

Nigeria has suffered a rash of attacks on churches in the past year.

In December, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in several northern states following a series of Christmas Day attacks on Christian churches.

Eighteen people were killed in the bombing of a church in Madalla, according to Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency. The militant Islamist group Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for that attack.

      Truth is, you speak for yourself only. You haven't a clue what anyone else here believes. You are no more a true prince than anyone else. You have said yourself that you consider the net to be graffiti, and not to be taken seriously...so whatever you say....I don't take seriously. Inncluding any professions of "faith" you utter. Garbage in, garbage out...it is the net, after all!
