According to police, the terrorists delivered two cars filled with explosives to the city market of Jos, having planned the action in such a way that as many civilians were injured. To date, no one has claimed responsibility for the explosions, but, according to observers, they can be behind the radical group Boca Haram, which operates in the country.
According to Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan, this is a “brutal and devilish” terrorist attack. “The government remains fully committed to defeating terror. We cannot turn away from this path, ”he added.
It is worth noting that on May 20, the Nigerian Parliament extended the state of emergency imposed in the three northern states in whose territory the militants "Boko Haram" operate.
