Two bomb blasts have just gone off in Jos. It seems certain elements who are bent on turning Nigeria into a terrorist state have struck again, this time Jos was the target. This comes in the wake of various killings which have been going on for some time now in the city of Jos.
Below is an excerpt from the Vanguard Newspapers on this new development.
There were two explosions Sunday night at a drinking joint in Jos, Plateau State, resulting in a yet-to- be-ascertained number of deaths.
The explosions occurred at 8.15 p.m. at the West of Mines junction where fun- seekers had gathered to relax.
A resident of the area said they heard two explosions within five minutes interval throwing the whole area into pandemonium.
People scampered from the area for fear of another explosion.
Vehicles were said to have ran into each other as the drivers were trying to flee from the area.
Securitymen and personnel of Police Anti-Bomb Unit rushed to the scene shortly after the explosions and cordoned off the area.
The blast is coming in the wake of serial killings that have claimed several lives in the state within the past one week.
