Jos blast: Pastor, wife, children
among 52 victims on admission
***That is the only daughter I
have. Please tell them to help me
to trace her where ever she may
be, especially since I can’t get
another child like her at my age
now***
Jos – (NAN) The Pastor of Christ
Chosen Church of God, Monday
Uzoka, his wife and two children
are among the 52 victims affected
by the suicide bomb that hit the
Church in Jos on Sunday.
A correspondent of the News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN), who
visited Jos University Teaching
Hospital (JUTH), was informed by
medical personnel that Uzoka and
another Church elder were in
“very critical situation”.
The rest of the 50 victims were on
admission at the nearby Bingham
University Teaching Hospital
(BUTH).
Mrs. Maria Goni, BUTH’s Director of
Nursing Services, told our
correspondent that the duo had
to be transferred to JUTH
“because they were in a serious
condition and in dire need of
surgery“.
“Right now, we have 50 persons
on admission in our hospital. In
fact, we are still counting and may
have more. When we are through
with counting, we shall know the
exact figure we have.
“We have people with
orthopeadic and laceration cases
among others, but we are doing
our best to treat them,” she said.
She said that no death had so far
been recorded among the victims
brought to the hospital.
Goni expressed happiness that
the Red Cross International and
the Plateau Government had
rendered much help in the
provision of drugs and other
consumables.
NAN observed that among the
victims were the elderly, women
and children, who had suffered
various degrees of injuries from
the blast.
One of the victims, Mrs. Esther
Emmanuel, 35, said that four of
her children, Chigozie (11), Victor
(3), Ikechukwu (8) and Chidinma
(12) were also on admission.
Another victim, Mrs. Mercy Francis,
45, said her six year-old daughter,
Blessing, had “disappeared”
during the blast and called on the
authorities to help in locating her.
“That is the only daughter I have.
Please tell them to help me to
trace her where ever she may be,
especially since I can’t get another
child like her at my age now,”
Francis cried out. (NAN) flow me on facebook http://m.facebook.com/Imostatejokes?refid=5
