The Spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, in a brief statement said “the explosion heard in Jos, Plateau State this morning was from an accident that occurred while troops authorized to destroy unservicable ammunition were transporting the bad ammunition.
“Some of the unserviceable ammunition exploded in the process of moving them to demolition site in the bush”.
Colonel Usman added that the explosion did not affect the barracks or neighbouring communities.
He, nevertheless, disclosed that “Unfortunately, two soldiers lost their lives and one sustained injuries. Normalcy has returned to the area”.
