Jos - The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has assured victims of bomb explosion in Jos of the support of the Federal Government to cater for their medical needs.

According to a statement by Sani Datti, Senior Information Officer of the agency, the Director General, Muhammad Sani Sidi, disclosed this in Jos during a visit to the victims of the blast at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH).

He directed the zonal office of Agency in Jos to immediately conduct assessment of the situation for appropriate relief support from the government.
