This explosion happened in Ungwan Muazu, near the location where a suicide bomber died while trying to plant a bomb a few weeks ago.
In an earlier explosion, at least 10 people were reportedly killed in Kaduna, where a suicide bomber detonated a massive bomb he had dropped off near the office of ThisDay newspaper on Kano road, in the proximity of Ahmadu Bello Way.
At the ThisDay office in Abuja, a suicide bomber drove a car through the gates of the newspaper’s warehouse. Allegedly, buildings over 1 kilometer away shook from the resulting explosion.
President Goodluck Jonathan, who is in Cote D’Ivoire for an Extra-Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), condemned the attacks on ThisDay offices.
