31 Dead As Double Bombing Rocks Jos City

A double bombing Thursday in the city of Jos killed at least 31 people near the site where a similar attack in May killed 118 people, the state government told AFP.

“The bodies recovered so far are 31 but rescue workers are at the scene and the figures may change,” said Pam Ayuba, the spokesman for area Governor Jonah Jang.

Unconfirmed reports said the blasts occurred in front of Mr. Biggs, a fast food outlet in the Terminus area of the town.

The said incidents took place about 200meters away from where the May, 20th twin blasts occurred.

It would be recalled that roadside traders had taken over that portion of the city for street trading since the unfortunate incidents in May caused the closure of the nearby market.

Street traders take over the streets any moment from 5pm as government officials who stop them from trading on the spot close from work.
