Update: Another Bomb Blast In Nyanya Abuja…30 Dead. Bomb Detonates Before Reaching It’s Target

BOMB

I have just heard a bomb went off in Nyanya an hour ago, barely three weeks after the Nyanya bus park blast which killed over 80 people. Here’s what I have heard from someone who visited Maitama Hospital Abuja where a lot of the injured have been taken to for treatment. The bomb allegedly went off before reaching it’s target, which was a busy market in Nyanya. The bombers are alleged to have died.

We don’t know how many lives were lost or how many are injured. All I know is that the scene at Maitama Hospital were scores have been taken to for treatment is gruesome.

UPDATE: The blast, which was a suicide attack occurred at 8:45pm when a bomb-laden car exploded at the Karshi Taxi Park, a few metres from the Nyanya Bus Park where the April 14, 2014 explosion took place. According to Punch 25 bodies were taken to the Maitama District Hospital, Asokoro, four corpses were dropped at the National Hospital while one body was was taken to an unidentified hospital in Nyanya.

A resident of Nyanya, who identified himself as Lambert, said he was walking along the road when he heard a loud blast which shook the area and sent everyone scurrying in different directions.

He said, “I went to the park, but the scene was alight with burning vehicles and there were corpses of people on the ground as well as dismembered bodies; there were body parts on the ground including hands, and heads. It was a gory sight and I had to leave the scene.”

Someone sent me the  picture below from the scene of the blast…Warning it’s gruesome

Mothers of over 200 missing secondary school girls from Chibok, Borno State were joined by indigenes and concerned Nigerians for a peaceful protest to demand the immediate rescue  of the girls who were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists over 2 weeks ago.

The protesters marched from Eagle Square, Abuja to the National Assembly where they submitted a protest letter. According to Sahara Reporters, members of the senate, Barnabas Gemade and Helen Esuene received the protesters, telling them that the Senate was considering a motion in relation to the abducted girls.

Peter&PaulPSquare_that1960chickdotcom

Some days back P-Square’s publicist Bayo Adetu, granted an interview in which he said the group’s breakup reports were nothing more than a publicity stunt the brothers all played along to, he also lashed out at bloggers calling us “stupid”, unfortunately for Mr. Adetu and his clients all that interview did was make hurt them rather than help…[READ IT HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

Perhaps as a result of the backlash from Adetu’s interview, yesterday Peter admitted on twitter that there was infact a fight between him and his siblings, when he wrote “We quarrel and argue just as u all do the same with ur siblings and families. Psquare is no exception. We r also human, we ve settled our differences. And it has made us stronger! Thank u all for ur support and prayers”

Shortly after that Adetu released a statement saying his words in the interview he gave here, were misinterpreted.
