It is being reported that dozens of people have been killed in two blasts that rocked a crowded bus station on the outskirts of Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, officials say.

The blast happened as residents starting their day were getting ready to board buses and taxis to go to work in central Abuja. Witnesses have said that there were bodies everywhere, and unofficial reports are putting the death toll at over 10/

It is believed that this attack is by the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, who have been blamed for close to 150 deaths in Borno this past week alone.

The blast ripped a hole four feet deep (1.2 metre) in the ground of Nyanya Motor Park, some 16km (10 miles) from the city centre, and destroyed more than 30 vehicles, causing secondary explosions as their fuel tanks ignited and burned, the Associated Press news agency reports.

Ambulances have been taking the dead and injured to nearby hospitals.

    When our rulers becomes leaders and know the need of the masses and stop thinking that Nigeria belong to them alone because the average Nigerians are been treated like slave’s, God will help us.
