Saturday night’s bomb explosion caused panic within Jos city, as most Christians now stay away from public places to avoid being trapped.
Christians on Sunday, in Jos, Plateau State, stayed indoors as a result
of the rumour that Boko Haram planned to attack some places of worship
within the state capital.
Rumour was rife on Saturday evening that some places of worships would be attacked on Sunday, as some of the churches which conducted service hurriedly closed before 11.00 a.m.
Governor Jonah Jang, however, urged the people of the state to remain courageous and have faith that the war on terrorism would be won.
Jang, in his reaction to the latest explosion, in a statement signed by his Director of Press and Publicity, Mr James Manok, said the explosion was a calculated attempt to distrupt the peace and normalcy which had since returned to the state.
