Armed Boko Haram Islamists locked church doors in Adamawa State.
They shot the congregation and slit their throats. 47 Christians were killed.
Christian Today reported, via Religion of Peace:

On Sunday, armed militants attacked a church in Adamawa State in the north-east of the country. They locked the doors before the end of the service and shot at the congregation, slitting the throats of those who tried to escape. They also detonated bombs before going on a four hour rampage, burning houses and taking hostages from the village.

Initial reports recorded 22 casualties. However, that number has now risen to 53, with dozens more wounded.

On the same day, the Islamist group carried out another vicious attack in Kawuri Village, in neighbouring Borno State. Militants shot men, women and children as a busy weekend market was packing up, and set fire to over 300 homes. Many victims are now reportedly unrecognisable due to terrible burns.
