No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but it came during a bombing campaign surrounding Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorist network. Boko Haram has taken credit for multiple attacks throughout the country and is responsible for the high-profile kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls there.
The explosions came from twin car bombs, which exploded half an hour apart from each other, killing some of the rescue workers who rushed to the scene of the first.
The blasts were reported to be heard from miles away, indicating the size of the blast was substantial.
The city of Jos is located in Central Nigeria in the Plateau state, which divides the mostly Muslim north and Christian south.
