Explosions Rock Abuja

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has confirmed that multiple explosions rocked the twin districts of Nyanya and Kuje at the Federal Capital Territory killing an unconfirmed number of persons and destroying property. Scores of persons were said to have died in the explosions which unconfirmed sources said happened between 9.30 and 10pm on Friday night. 

The blast at Kuje was said to have occurred between the Market and the Local Council headquarters.
NEMA however disclosed that it was yet to ascertain the number of persons that died in both incidents even as it said rescue services ambulances had ferried several injured to hospitals in Abuja. 

This comes just days after a series of explosions rocked the city of Maiduguri in northeast with casualties feared. It was not immediately clear how many blasts hit the Borno state capital but one police officer said as many as seven went off and locals reported at least two bombs were strapped to teenage girls.

Acting director, army public relations, Colonel Sani Usman confirmed the multiple explosions at Sajeri, Maiduguri and he stated that at least 14 persons were killed and 39 injured. Boko Haram Islamists have increasingly used suicide bombers to target civilians, including in Maiduguri, where on September 20 at least 117 people were killed in a wave of attacks.
