Just days after two bombs exploded at a Jos market killing 118, another bomb blast has occurred in Jos yet again, killing 3 people.
The unfortunate incident took place on Saturday night at a football viewing center on Bauchi road where football fans watching the European Champions League final, Vanguard reports.
Chris Olakpe, the commissioner of police for Plateau state, says the bomber’s improvised explosive device “went off prematurely.”
“He died in the wake of the heinous crime. He was consumed by his IED. It exploded before the viewing centre because of pressure from local youths and the alertness of the local people,” he said.
Bauchi Road is a predominantly Muslim area in Jos.
