There was no casualty in the explosion reported this morning at the ECWA Church in Tudunwada Area of Jos, Plateau state today.

The ECWA church was filled with worshippers when a private security guard spotted the bomb at the entrance.

The guard picked the bomb and threw it off the church before it exploded instantly. No one was killed from the explosion, although the guard sustained injuries on the leg and is currently being treated, a worshipper said.

Another witness said the police anti-bomb squad, on arrival, discovered another explosive device that was planted at the restroom of the church.

The ECWA church in Tudunwa is located near the Federal Secretariat in Jos, Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Meanwhile, the police have also said no one was killed from the explosion. The police spokesperson in Plateau, Abuh Emmanuel, told NE that anti-bomb experts have been deployed to the scene.

“Experts have been sent there immediately to ascertain those who planted the explosion, and possibly, the manufacturers of the device. But I was told no one died in the incident,” he said.

The Sunday explosion occurred one week after a similar explosion at a Redeemed Church in Yobe State claimed many lives.

Also, last week, two explosions occurred at a restaurant and a mosque holding an Islamic sermon, killing 44 people and wounding 67.

Boko Haram was suspected to have planted the bombs.
