ABUJA, NIGERIA (Worthy News)– A committee of Nigeria’s government was investigating Thursday, August 4, how to overcome rapidly spreading Islamic violence, after two weekend bomb explosions near churches in mainly Muslim areas.
The blasts rocked the central city of Jos where one bomb exploded on Saturday night, July 30, in the Angwan Rimi area near a Baptist Church, according to local Christians. No one was injured as the building was not used because of previous damage caused by Muslim extremists, news reports said.
A second bomb reportedly exploded early Sunday morning, July 31, near a Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN) building on Sarkin Mangu Street and an Assemblies of God sanctuary in the Kwarrarafa Area, police said.
No one was reportedly injured in either of the explosions. There was no claim of responsibility for the attacks, which happened in an area where prominent Islamic leaders live.
