How the suicide bomber struck in Bauchi

A suicide bomber attacked two churches located in the same premises in Bauchi on Sunday killing not fewer than 10 worshippers and injuring unspecified number of persons.

The churches affected were Living Faith and Harvest Field both located in the Yelwa Tudu area of the Bauchi metropolis. 
Recounting the incident in an interview with NAN, a Living Faith Church pastor, Johnson Elogu, said the suicide bomber forced his car into a group of worshippers. 
He said: “At about 9.20 in the morning when those who attended the first service came out of the church, we heard a blast that shook the entire church building. 
“People started running helter-skelter for their lives. I managed to come out only to discover that it was a case of suicide bombing. 
“Several persons died while others were seriously injured and had been taken to the hospital.”
The pastor stated that the casualty figure was yet to be ascertained, but that the corpses were taken to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, alongside the injured. 
Sources at the hospital’s morgue who requested anonymity confirmed that corpses were deposited at the facility from the explosion site but did not state the figure.
Commissioner of Police in Bauchi State, Mohammed Ladan, confirmed the incident but said the casualty figure had not been ascertained. 
“I can confirm to you that there was a blast, but it is too early to know the casualty figure,” he said.
