The police has confirmed this morning’s explosion in a church in Jos, Plateau State.
The Public Relations Officer, Plateau State Police Command, Emmanuel Abuh, confirmed the explosion.
Abuh, however, said that the explosion occurred at the Evangelical Church of West Africa, Rukuba Road, Jos.
The ECWA branch on Rukuba Road in Jos is close to the Lord’s Chosen Church, which sources initially told The Eagle Online was the target of the attackers.
Our source said shooting is yet to subside in the area.
The casualty figure from both the explosion and shooting is said to “be very high.”
Residents of the area are said to be fleeing to other parts of the town.
