Another desaster has been averted in Jos, the Plateau State capital, when another bomb was defused by security operatives in the early hours of Monday.
It was learnt that the improvised explosive device (IED) was planted in front of Hamza Telephone store on Ahmadu Bello Way.
However, it appears that an alert citizen noticing the package promptly notified the police, which sent its Bomb Disposal Unit to neutralise the device.
There have already been two deadly explosions in Jos in the last one week.
While the first one at the Terminus Market left no fewer than 118 persons dead, second one on Saturday night killed four persons, including the suicide bomber.
