    the casualties was underestimated. I served and base in Jos south government area of the state. More than 200 was killed between Saturday morning to Sunday evening. Just this morning Three(3) were killed at bukuru market( Close to Zenith bank). This is failure on the part of both state and the federal government. The security agenthecies and the security chiefs in the country have failed and the whole APC led administration is a failure
