At least 80 persons were injured. The Plateau state police commissioner Abdulrahman Akano said there were a total of 7 explosions with homemade devices; an unusual tactic.

One of he targets is a church,  Sacred Catholic Church at Kadong — a section of the metropolitan Jos.
Another target at Angwa Rukuba explosions killed 17 people, in Gada Biu 32 lives were eliminated by the radical zealots. The bomb explosions continued in the already volatile and violence wracked Nasarawa Gwom section of the Jos North Local Government.
Radical Islamic zealots and Christians in the area have been on violent clashes and collision over religion, land and politics, as reported variously since 10 years and more here on USAfricaonline.com and our e-group Nigeria360@yahoogroups.com
