Two blasts hit the central Nigerian city of Jos on Sunday evening, one at a restaurant and another targeting a Muslim cleric who has disowned Islamist militant group Boko Haram in the past, several sources said.

Plateau State police spokesman Emmanuel Abuh confirmed there had been two attacks in Jos but had no further details immediately.

A suicide bomber killed six people at a church in northeast Nigeria earlier on Sunday at the end of a week in which suspected Boko Haram insurgents killed more than 200 people.
