Simon Lalong, Governor of Plateau State has declared a curfew in Jos, the state capital and the entire state.
As at the time of filing this report, shops in Jos are already closed while there were scanty movement of people vehicles.
The curfew followed a clash early in the morning at Kuru near Jos between military men and machete wielding young men.
Elendu Reports earlier broke the news that Mararaba Jama, a village less that is less than 3 kilometres from Kuru and close to Jos, the capital of Plateau State was invaded by heavily armed military men to quell destruction and killings which were being perpetrated by young men from the village.
Elendu Reports ran into the crisis as it was happening.
Burnt vehicles, shattered glasses and burning tyres littered the only road leading into Jos.
Elendu Reports gathered that trouble started when worshippers in a church were slaughtered by unknown gunmen during church service on Sunday morning.
About a kilometre into the road leading to Ray field, a suburb of Jos, angry youths were seen searching vehicles and asking occupants of the vehicles to declare their religion.
Our correspondent gathered that they were looking for Muslims whom they claim carried out the attack on the church Sunday morning.
The convoy of Simon Lalong, Governor of the state also ran into the angry youths when he was on his way from Abuja.
The Governor and some of his aides were whisked away in an helicopter to safety, just as the city of Jos has become very tense as residents were seeing huddling in groups.
