JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – A congregation in this central Nigerian city continued worshiping on Sunday (July 12) after a security man found and tossed over a fence a bomb before it exploded, the pastor said.

The Nigerian military reported its troops have arrested the mastermind of last Sunday’s bombing in Jos, Plateau State, and Tuesday’s suicide bomb in Zaria, Kaduna State.

In Jos, a coordinated bomb and gun attack on worshippers at Yan Taya mosque, Dillimi Street, off Bauchi Road, Jos killed 48 people, injuring several others. In Zaria, 26 were killed in a suicide attack on the secretariat building in Sabon Gari Local Government Area during a verification exercise.

The press release from Army Spokesman Colonel SK Usman said that “the arrested terrorists are currently being processed for further action and would soon face the full wrath of the law.”

The military stopped the terrorist and two of his accomplices at a checkpoint in Dadin Kowa, Gombe State where they were disguised and hiding in a trailer.

25 Small Scale Business ideas and Investment Opportunities in Nigeria

 1. Livestock Farming Do you know that one of the fastest growing business opportunities in Nigeria is catfish farming? The primary reason I listed catfish farming as one of the fastest business opportunities in Nigeria is because it’s an emerging industry that hasn’t reached its peak or full potential. The major players in this business are usually regional players. What this means in essence is that each major player in the catfish farming industry is focused only on a particular business terrain within the geographical location of the farm.
