Abuja Explosion: Death Toll Hits 70

By pointblanknews.com

The death toll from Monday explosion at Nyanya Bus Park has hit 70.

A NAN correspondent who got to the scene shortly after the blast, counted

about 70 corpses.

The huge explosion left a big crater at the scene of the blast.

Those affected were passengers, mostly workers leaving the park to the

city centre, petty traders and vehicles conveying passengers to other

locations within and outside the FCT.

CSP Frank Mba, Police Force spokesman, confirmed that 16 high capacity

buses, some cars and motorcycles were affected in the explosion.

He said investigation had begun.

“Experts from the Bomb Disposal Squad are on ground, the police are

working with other security agencies.

“At this stage, we may not be able to give the casualty figure; the

reasons are obvious; a lot of people are in the hospital; our detectives

are visiting hospitals and taking count.

“We want to give you figures that we can back up with facts,'' he said.

Mr president, You had been promised before that they will make the country ungovernable since 2011, it didn,t bother you, HOW FAR. To be a president is not like going to garden roses,since you do know what to do with this group(B.H) and their sponsorers, not even a single arrest. pls come back home.
