Evaristus Bassey who is the Director of Caritas Nigeria, an agency of the Catholic Church and spokesman of the state police command have confirmed the attack. The injured are receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre in the state.

And Pentecostal Bishops in northern Nigeria have strongly condemned the resurgence of attacks on worship places, especially in Christian communities of the Middle Belt.
