A French news agency reporter said he saw mobs targeting people who they believed to be Muslims in the neighbourhood of the church.
According to a spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency, a rescue vehicle was also attacked in the violence after the bombing.
A suicide bomber had earlier slammed a car bomb into St. Rita Catholic Church in Malali, Kaduna during services, killing at least three people, officials said.
A rescue official said “At least three people are confirmed dead.” He added that the death toll included the suspected attacker and that there were a number of injuries.
The neighbourhood shook as the bomb blast has brought up fears of a fresh outbreak of reprisal attacks and clashes between Christians and Muslims.
