This week PhotoNews presents the crisis in North Jos, the capital of Plateau State. It tells the story of injustice against a people in the same language used during the 1966 prognom that degenerated to the Nigerian invasion of Biafra 1967.
As the tears of the silent voices continue its run down the cheeks of the helpless surviving victims of the Jos masacre, the violence and threat of more violence continue to ring loud in Jos. The Islamic militants appear determined in their quest to push the Christian native of Jos away from the community, dead or alive.
Over 8,000 deaths have be recorded since the start of the crisis in Jos. And it continues. Villagers believe that since Jos is not an oil producing area that the leaders of the country have de-priotized the mounting deaths. Many more bodies are expected to be buried – as the native youths in the inner communities parade around in brewing anger – expected to blow open soon.
The properties and human lives in Jos tell the same horrid tale.
