Reports say at least 4 people were killed while more than 45 were injured. The bomb was exploded at the car park area of the church as the bomber could not gain access to the main church premises due to a barricade, the suicide bomber also died in the incident. The car used in the attack was identified as an Opel vectra sedan. The incident happened shortly before 9am just about the time the first mass got finished and worshipers started leaving the church. The injured persons are being treated at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa teaching hospital, Bauchi.
