Graphic Images From The Scene Of Yesterday's Bomb Blast In Kuje, Abuja

Suspected Boko Haram insurgents yesterday's evening detonated bombs in the Kuje, Jikowyi, Maraba and Nyanya area of the Federal Capital Area of Abuja,killing several people.

A security source confirmed two bombings with one detonated just behind Kuje police station. In a separate incident, another bomber detonated explosives at Nyanya area of Abuja.

The total number of casualties from the multiple blasts could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.However,at least 13 people were killed in the blast at Kuje.See photos of the victims of bombing in Kuje area of Abuja above.

The bomb attacks seemed to have been predicted in tweets by one “Chima Okoro63” who posted several tweets on October 1, 2015, stating that Islamist insurgents belonging to Boko Haram planned to bomb police, navy and army formations and kill many security agents.

It is unclear whether Nigeria’s security agents were aware of the tweets or if they took any action based on them. 

Our security source said he could not say how many people died in the Kuje blasts. “We’re still trying to secure the areas. We don’t know the number of people killed or wounded,” he said. 

 However, citizen journalists affiliated with SaharaReporters sent photos of victims of the bombing where over 13 bodies have so far been recovered.
