Twin blasts have hit the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Tudun Wada, near the Federal Secretariat in Jos, Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State in North-Central Nigeria.

The blast went off in quick succession at about 8am when the church service was midway, sparking pandemonium.

The Special Task Force in Jos however says that there were no casualties.

Last week another twin blast hit a crowded Mosque and a restaurant in Jos, killing at least 44 people.

Boko Haram militants have killed nearly 200 people in a string of attacks across northern Nigeria in recent days, evidence of their continued determination to cause turmoil despite a relatively successful campaign earlier this year by troops from Nigeria and neighbouring countries.
