Continuation Of This Exclusive Story:
Less than 72 hours after a bomb scare was controlled by men of the Nigeria Police Force anti-bomb squad in Jos, Plateau State, two simultaneous bomb blasts exploded in the state capital on Thursday evening, killing about 32 people.
The bombing took place at a Mr. Biggs roundabout on Ahmadu Bello Way.
A resident and eyewitness noted, “One would have said the causalities would be low, but since the ban on street hawking in Jos, [the area] gets crowded at night for late buying and selling.”
Relevant officials have confirmed the attack.
