Aftermath of May Day Bomb Blast in Nyanya - 19 Dead and More Injured

Posted in: , , ,

The news yesterday of another bomb blast in Abuja near the same spot in Nyanya where another blast killed over seventy people two weeks ago really saddened me. The Nigerian police have now confirmed that 19 people were killed in yesterday's blast, with other seventy injured, 66 hospitalized. When will this extreme violence and insecurity end?

BBC reporter Nkem Ifejika was on ground in Abuja and this morning for NewsDay, he posted some photos from the scene of the bomb blast on Twitter. I can't imagine how those who live in Nyanya and environs must feel, having the police check point, passing the places where so many died? God help us!
