The church is located in the Lokoja area of ​​Kogi State, 105 km from the capital of Nigeria, Abuja. So far this year, at least seven cases of attacks on churches and mosques have been reported in Nigeria. About 50 people were killed in a similar attack in June.

In June this year, a Catholic church in south-west Nigeria was attacked and detonated by armed assailants, killing at least 50 people. Officials said the attackers targeted the Catholic Church of St. Francis in Ondo state. The attack was carried out when devotees had gathered there on the occasion of ‘Pentecost Sunday’, a festival of Christians. Many children were among the dead.

31 people died in May

Earlier on May 29, 31 people were killed and seven were injured in a stampede during an event at a church in southern Nigeria. The organizers had said that the event was organized with the aim of “giving hope to the needy”.
