Bomb Blasts Kill Over 100 People In Jos

There is no other way to describe what is going on in Nigeria today, other than what it is - pure madness. As you read this, over 100 of our country's citizens have been sent to their early graves in Jos, Plateau State capital by men suspected to be terrorists from the dreaded Boko Haram sect, we gathered.
According to eyewitnesses in the area, two big explosions rocked the Jos University Teaching Hospital inside the Terminus Market near Murtala Mohammed way, in Jos city, with heavy casualties.
At least five residents of the area had informed security officials that they were suspicious of a mysteriously Toyota Van parked in their area, but no police arrived at the scene, and nothing was done until the car eventually exploded hours later.
The massive explosions led to serious commotion in the area as the two bombs were primed to inflict maximum casualties as they exploded just few minutes apart. Over 100 have died...

The first vehicle to explode was a Peugeot J5 van, with registration number XG 148 BLD. The second blast was carried out with a Toyota van, with a Gombe state license plate number.
The second car, a Toyota Sienna van, had been abandoned in the area since 6:00am on Tuesday morning but the security men in the area failed to take action on time. I don't understand why they failed to act.

May the souls of our departed country men and women rest in peace. Amen!
