A pattern of violence initiated through Christmas Eve bomb attacks that killed 32 and injured more than 70 continues to resound in Jos, capital city of Nigeria's Plateau State.
Details of the latest violence were unclear,but one witness quoted by Reuters news agency reported dozens of buildings on fire and bloodied people being carried to hospital.
Police commissioner Abdulrahman Akano told AFP news agency that one person had been killed.
Reports said two bombs exploded near a large market. A third hit a mainly Christian area while the fourth was near a road leading to a mosque. No group has claimed responsibility.
LEADERSHIP SUNDAY gathered that the aggrieved youths yesterday engaged in a violent protest and took to major roads. They were said to have barricaded roads, killing, vandalising and burning cars. Gada biyu is one of the communities affected by the blasts.
Given the enormity of the protest which lasted for hours, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Azubuike Ihejirika has described the bomb explosions as an act of terrorism. Ihejirika told newsmen in Port Harcourt that the bomb blasts were unfortunate incidents that have cajoled the military to enhance intelligence to prevent further bombings in the country.
