Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi was among the few lucky people who escaped last week's bomb blast that left over 150 killed at a market in Jos, Plateau State unharmed. The Jos-born footballer told BBC he left the popular market barely 15 minutes before the first blast rocked the area.

"I am very, very lucky, just by the grace of God. It was just like an ordinary day. Happy faces and friendly warmth that make you feel happy to be back home. We had gone to the railway market to get something. I think it was 15 minutes later when we heard the loud blast from the place. And suddenly, people were just running. There was chaos and pandemonium. There was smoke, I was confused, lost and just wondered what had happened. I had no idea of what was going on and it was scary. All my life I have never heard a bang or boom like that." He narrated.

Onazi who plays for Lazio of Italy added that he feels concerned about the security challenges in Jos and Nigeria as a country.

"I was born and bred in a peaceful Jos. I may be fortunate enough to live outside the place right now, but I still have my family and friends who live in the city. I always get worried when there are reports of terrible incidents there on a regular basis. It's sad and depressing to live with this." He concluded.
