A bomb at Saint Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, near Abuja, kills 42 people. A group member and three secret police die when a car bomb rams a military convoy in Damaturu. A botched church bombing in the Ray Field area of Jos leaves one policeman dead. The group’s spokesman tells a Nigerian newspaper:
By the grace of God, we are responsible for all the attacks. There will never be peace until our demands are met. We want all our brothers who have been incarcerated to be released; we want full implementation of the sharia system and we want democracy and the constitution to be suspended.
