Dozens of people were killed and scores injured Sunday in multiple church bombings followed by rioting in northern Nigeria's Kaduna State, officials and witnesses said.
"I think it will be fair to say dozens of people lost their lives in these orgies of violence, while scores that were injured were taken to hospitals,'' National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) spokesman Yushau Shuaib told AFP.
The bombs rocked five churches in the neighbouring cities of Zaria and Kaduna and in the southern towns of Nassarawa and Barnawa in Kaduna state.
