Newscast ABUJAAn explosion that shattered a bus station in Nigeria's capital this morning, killing 71 people and injuring 124, has been blamed on Boko Haram the terrorist group.


Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that President Goodluck Jonathan visited the scene in Abuja and blamed the Islamic extremist group which operates in the northeast of Nigeria and which has been threatening to attack Nigeria's capital. One official said he believed the bomb was buried in the earth while the emergency management agency said the explosives were apparently hidden in a vehicle.

The blast destroyed 16 luxury buses and 24 minibuses and cars, said police spokesman Frank Mba, who gave the death toll.
