ABUJA, Nigeria – A bomb at a crowded bus station on the outskirts of Abuja killed at least 71 people during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said.
Body parts and blood were strewn across the station after the first such attack near the Nigerian capital for two years.
“I was waiting to get on a bus when I heard a deafening explosion then saw smoke. People were running around in panic,” witness Mimi Daniels said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility but suspicion is likely to fall on Islamist militant group Boko Haram, which has waged an increasingly bloody insurgency in the northeast.
