Deadly Terrorist Bomb Explosion hits Bauchi Road Motor Car Park In Jos

A witness, Awalu Sani, told PREMIUM TIMES the explosion has killed a yet unknown amount of people, injuring several others and destroying many vehicles.

Information on the incident remain sketchy. The Police in Jos couldn’t be reached for comments only at that time.

The report of the explosion in Jos came hours after another suicide bombing killed 20 people and injured 17 others in Biu, Borno state.

The suicide bomber, driving a tricycle, had scaled through a protection checkpoint, blasting himself near a packed neighbourhood.

The suicide attack occurred at about 3pm when the male bomber sneaked past a checkpoint which another suicide bomber attacked last Wednesday, and detonated the explosive after alighting from the commercial tricycle, popularly called Keke Napep.

A witness, who identified himself as Nasiru, ‎said, “The suicide bomber had come off the Keke Napep and was heading towards the roadside when the bomb went off, killing those that were inside the Keke Napep and those standing by the road side.

“Though the suicide bomber did not die immediately, he was later shot dead by angry members of Civillian-JTF. Many have been injured and some have died including the suicide bomber.”
