A bomb attack on a Catholic church in northern Nigeria’s main city of Kano killed five people and wounded eight on Sunday, a senior police officer said.

The bomber threw the bomb at worshippers on their way out of the church, police commissioner Adenrele Shinaba told Reuters.

Police cordoned off the scene.



In a separate attack, a female suicide bomber tried to attack police officers on the streets. She killed herself but only wounded two of them, Shinaba said.
