via Gunmen Open Fire During Church Service, Kill 19 — Charisma News

Gunmen opened fire during a Nigerian church service Tuesday, killing at least 19, including two priests.

State police told CNN the attackers were most likely Fulani herdsmen who continued their crusade by burning down 50 homes.

“They attacked the venue of a burial ceremony and also attacked the church where the two reverend fathers were holding mass,” police commissioner Fatai Owoseni says. “We were able to recover 16 bodies from the scene of the attack and those of the two priests.”
