A suicide bomber killed 36 people and injured 13 others in Kaduna on April 5, after church security workers turned him away from the church they were guarding. Deterred from attacking the church, the bomber detonated his weapon a few moments later in a crowded commercial district.

At about 10 a.m. the day before Good Friday, a man in an ash-colored Honda approached the ECWA Good News Church in Kaduna. Francis Markus, a security guard, told the man he could not pass because a church service was in progress. “I advised him to pass after the church service, but he insisted,” said Francis.
