Bomb Blast Rocks ECWA Church In Jos

Jos Bombing

A bomb has exploded at one of the churches of Evangelical Church Winning All, popular called ECWA, in Jos, Plateau State capital, in the early hours of Sunday.

    A witness who lives close to the church at Tudun Wada, Angwan Yashi, near the Federal Secretariat, said there was no casualty because the explosion occurred before worshipers arrived for the day’s service.

    “You know ECWA services begin from 8am but the blast happened earlier. Maybe those who planted the bomb taught it was a catholic church, which service starts as early as 6am,” the witness, who did not give their name, said.

    The latest bomb blast is coming one week after a twin blast at a restaurant and a mosque left more than 40 people dead.

    Nobody has claimed responsibility but the attack bore the hallmark of suspected Boko Haram, who over the years has targeted worship centres and crowded places.
