Military forces and police armed with assault rifles patrolled the streets leading to churches and stood guard outside the compounds. Everyone entering was required to produce identity cards and was body searched.
Volunteers were stationed at the gates of churches to identify parishioners and look for suspicious individuals.
Church authorities are also mulling reopening church-run schools on Tuesday if they can be satisfied with security.
