Jos Crisis

For those interested in knowing the truth about the recent crisis in Jos, plateau State of Nigeria please I Urge you to visit the links below and if you have any comments do let me know. For I believe and think the articles below covers all you should know about the crisis and why it happened and also the mood in the Country as of today. If you want to know everything please read the links below.

A little Introduction to My Country's State of Plateau:

Plateau State is the twelfth largest state of Nigeria, and is roughly located in the center of the country. Its capital is Jos. Plateau State is celebrated as "The Home of Peace and Tourism", an image that has been fractured in recent years by Muslim-Christian clashes in the state. Plateau State gets its name from the Jos Plateau. It has a population of around 3.5 million people.

Jos is a city in Nigeria's middle belt and is the administrative capital of Plateau State. It is located at 9°56′0″N 8°53′00″E / 9.93333, 8.883333, high on the Jos Plateau. During British colonial rule it was an important centre for tin mining. In 2001 it became the focus of violent religious clashes between its Muslim and Christian populations, and again in 2008 (see 2008 Jos riots).

I also want to use this opportunity to thank Berean Wife for thinking of me as soon as she heard of this news thinking I lived there. I also remember I was telling Isaiah of word and Verse about the Middle belt of Nigeria sometime ago, also my Junior sister schooled in Jos at the Air force Military school there, Jos weather is cold (the coldest state in my Country) and there is a lot of food too in the Middle belt of Nigeria. cost of living isn't high in Jos . . . unlike other states in Nigeria(the Niger Delta, oil regions)


Death, tears, blood as days of rage envelop Jos,

Jos mayhem: Fear grips Minna, Kontagora,

The Muslims and Christians of Jos


Remember to Pray for Jos and Nigeria and Also other parts of the World in one crisis or another.

  1. Channelofhealing,

    I'm still glad to know that the unrest has not affected your family. But I still worry about the other Christians that are affected in Jos. We live in a wicked, depraved world. :(

  2. Yes we do Berean Wife, the heart of man is desperately wicked

    The reason why I migrated to the United States of America in 2003 was a result of 2001 Jos crisis in which innocent bloods and lives were watsed by those that do not know the value of lives and that blood is sacred. You cannot kill the life you did not create, even if the pepertuators goes free here on earth, they will definitely answers for those lives in God's judgement. Concerned soul!

  4. Wow chikanayo, I can see from your name that you are truly a Child of God. what happens in the North is really terrible and I Pray that this coming Year that our God will surely manifest Himself in our situation in Jesus Mighty Name Amen
