Six children and a teacher were wounded, when a homemade explosive was thrown into an Islamic school in Nigeria.
The attack took place at Sapele. About 50 children were gathered there for an Islamic class. Delta state police spokesman Charles Muka, said the attackers drove by the school and threw the bomb into a class room on Tuesday. The wounded were all aged younger than nine, at least one was aged four.
Investigators suspect a local vigilante to be behind the attack, Muka said.
The latest incident follows coordinated attacks by an islamic sect on Christmas day that killed 39 people.
Analysts say these attacks risk secterian violence between, mostly Muslim North and Christian South in Nigeria, which has claimed several lives in the past decade.
People now fear that these attacks may lead to religious war in Africa’s most populous country.
But are all these RELIGIOUS groups doing this because of their RELIGION or just because of their need to cause CHAOS?
