20 people died and several others left injured in an attack on a Christian church in Nigeria on 29 April 2012. The attackers targeted a Christian church service at a university in Nigeria’s city of Kano.
No militant group claimed responsibility of the attack, but the role of, Boko Haram, a radical fundamentalist Islamic group, was suspected in the attack. The group has been carrying out a campaign of violence in the country. More than 180 people had died in Kano a few months back when the sect targeted its residents.
Nigeria, a west african nation, has a long history of struggle between the muslims and christians. People of both the religions exist in equally good number in Nigeria.
