Jos - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau, has appealed to residents of Jos to donate blood to victims of the twin bomb blasts that hit the city on Tuesday.

This is contained in a statement issued by the State Working Committee (SWC) of the party.

The statement, signed by Peter Shyepsuk, Publicity Secretary of the party, said that several victims of the blasts had died due to excessive bleeding.

He said that officials of the party, who visited hospitals, observed that blood was urgently needed to save the lives of the injured victims.

"It was observed that many victims are dying due to excessive bleeding and needed blood.

"This has made it imperative for us to call on spirited individuals to get to these hospitals and donate blood to save the lives of these brothers and sisters,'' the statement said.

It commended the Plateau government for its promise to offset the medical bills of the injured victims.
