The recent multiple explosions that occured in Northern part of Jos, the capital of Plateau State on Sunday night continues to reverberate across the Nigerian governing quarters and the international community. This is as 247ureports.com have learnt through a source within the top ranks in the State Security Services [SSS] that the office of the presidency has been receiving “a good amount” of pressure from leaders calling from the international community who are concerned over the continued bomb explosions growing into larger scale explosions around the country.
As gathered, intelligence information collected by foreign anti-terrorism experts, according to a SSS source, points to possible/likely up-ramp of violent activities in the Bauchi-Jos belt. Particular attention was given to the area where the University of Jos is housed/situated – belonging to the federal government which had been settled illegaly by Hausa settlers in the early 1980s through the early 1980s – naming the area, Anguan Rogo, Anguan Rimi. The Hausa settlers who came from Kano, Kaduna and Bauchi were said to have laid claims to the land. Some of the said Hausa landowners tell 247ureports.com that the land area was given to them by Berom Chieftains.
Adding gravitas to the fermenting stench is the renewed talks of dislocating the Hausa settlers from the university area by the Jonathan administration. This move has caused heightened concerns within the already agitated militant Islamic sect in the area. According to the SSS source, the militant Islamic sect has in turn marked the said area as priority target. As gathered, trained Hausa moslem youths in the act of terrorism are reported by residents in Jos as being bused in from areas believed to be East Africa [Somalia/Sudan] into the Jos/Bauchi belt to “protect” their lands against a possible enchroahment by the Jonathan led administration.
