The Igbo community in Jos, Plateau State, has cried out over the alleged neglect of the victims of the May 20, 2014, twin-bomb blasts at the Jos Terminus market by the state government and other relevant agencies.

The President-General of Igbo Community Association in Jos, Barr Jonah Ezekweme, while speaking to newsmen, said it lost 34 members, while 46 of its members who were injured in the blasts have been abandoned at various hospitals by the various agencies.

He called on the Plateau State government, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the Chief of Defense Staff to fulfill their promise to offset the hospital bills of the victims. It will be recalled that the May 20, 2014, twin-bomb blasts at the Jos Terminus market left over 120 people dead and more than 50 people injured. Barr Ezekweme said:

“We are crying to government on behalf of 46 of our members who were admitted into various hospital as a result of injury sustained from the bomb blasts.

Governor Jang is the closest to us here, and so we are pleading with him to come to our aid, because many of our people are still lying in the hospital. We still have over 30 of them yet to be discharged.
