An explosion has reportedly rocked a church in Jos, Plateau state, today, Sunday, July 12.

According to , the incident occurred at church in Tudunwa, Angwan yashi, near the Federal Secretariat in Jos. Leadership reports that it was a twin explosion.

An eye witness characterized the explosion as “ma$$ive” and the sound from it as very loud. The death toll is feared to be high as there were a lot of worshippers present at the service.

Luckily, due to the timely intervention of the security guard who spotted the planted bomb there was no casualty recorded. A witness narrated that the guard had picked the explosive and had thrown it off the church following which it went off immediately.

The guard sustained injuries on the leg and was rushed to the hospital.

Another witness said that upon arrival, police anti-bomb unit discovered one more bomb planted in the restroom of the church.

 

The police confirmed that nobody had been killed in the Sunday attack. Plateau police spokesman was quoted as saying:

“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.”

The tragedy comes shortly after the July 5 twin explosion in Jos, which claimed dozens of lives. A week ago a church on the outskirts on Potiskum, Yobe state, was attacked.

Condemning the renewed attacks by insurgents on places of worship, the presidency said:

“Nigerians are a very religious people and believes that the terrorists who wantonly attack our places of worship have willfully declared war on all that we value, and must therefore be confronted with all our might and collective resolve.”

Officials are yet to comment on the Sunday incident.
