Following a twin bomb blast in Kuje, a district in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Friday, October 2, 2015, another blast rocked the Nyanya Bus Station.
It is unknown at the time of filing this report report how many casualties were recorded in the Nyanya bombing. Channels TV reports that “scores are feared dead in the Kuje” bombing.
The Nyanya Bus Station was the target of two different bomb attacks in 2014. Over 200 people died in the two incidents.
A spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has confirmed the three bombings to The Trent. Manzo Ezekiel, a press officer at the NEMA Headquarters in Abuja said that rescue operations are underway at the scene of the bombings.
“NEMA has deployed its rescue teams in the evacuation of the victims to various hospitals in Abuja,” Ezekiel said in an email to The Trent. “The explosions which occurred almost simultaneously have resulted in a number of deaths and injuries but the rescue operations coordinated by NEMA is still ongoing.”
Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, has claimed responsibility for all the bombing attacks.
