Update On Jos Bomb Blast: No Casualty – Police, Eyewitness


A security guard on Sunday averted what would have been a high casualty from a bomb planted at a church in Jos Plateau State.

The ECWA church was filled with worshippers when the private security guard spotted the bomb at the entrance, eyewitness said.

The guard picked the bomb and threw it off the church before it exploded instantly.

No one was killed from the
explosion, although the guard sustained injuries on his leg and is currently being treated, a worshipper told newsmen.

Another witness said the
police anti-bomb squad, on arrival, discovered another explosive device that was planted at the restroom of the church.

The ECWA church in
Tudunwa is located near the Federal Secretariat in Jos, Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Meanwhile, the police have also said no one was killed by the explosion.

The police spokesperson in Plateau, Abuh Emmanuel,
said that
anti-bomb experts have been deployed to the scene.
“Experts have been sent there immediately to ascertain those who planted the explosion, and possibly, the manufacturers of the device.

But I was told no one died in the incident,” he said.

The Sunday explosion
occurred one week after a
similar explosion at a
Redeemed Church in Yobe State claimed
many lives.
