This was the aftermath of the bombing at a crowded bus park in Nyanya on the outskirts of Abuja (Nigeria’s capital).

How despicable was this? Innocent lives lost, families in mourning, a nation in a complete state of disbelief. This is what Nigeria has come to. A breeding ground of extremists whom would think nothing of murder all in the name of some misled beliefs.  According to Abbas Idris, Head of the Abuja Emergency Relief Agency there are 71 dead, 124 seriously injured, 16 luxury coaches and 24 mini buses destroyed.

Eye witnesses have claimed that there were human remains littered around the area as can be glimpsed from the video below. Currently no one has claimed responsibility for this despicable attack, but speculations abound that it is the work of the Islamic militant group – Boko Haram.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those whose lives were cruelly cut short.
