Just another day in Nigeria.
Abuja (AGI) — This morning an armed commando attacked a Catholic church and a police station in Damagun. The city lies 30 km from Damaturu, the capital of the Federal State of Yobe, in North-Eastern Nigeria.
The attack, local authorities explained, was fended off by the police forces that had been deployed in the area after a car-bombing attack against a school on Sunday. There are no reports of casualties in the attacks although part of the building hosting the school was destroyed.
Again on Sunday, a raid on an army checkpoint in Kano, the largest city in Northern Nigeria, caused the injury of 2 soldiers. In the past, Kano and the Federal State of Yobe have often been targeted by the Boko Haram Islamic fundamentalist terrorist group.
