Two satellite towns in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, have been rocked by powerful bomb explosions in which scores of innocent people are feared to have died.

The explosions occured almost simultaneously around midnight at the Kuje Market and the vicinity of Nyanya Police Station.

“The National Emergency Management Agency has deployed its rescue teams in the evacuation of the victims to various hospitals. The explosions which occured almost simultaneously have resulted in a number of deaths and injuries but the rescue operations coordinated by NEMA is still ongoing,” NEMA Press Officer Manzo Ezekiel said in a terse statement.

NewsExpress who visited the Kuje area on the eve of Thursday’s 55th Independence Day celebration, had noticed tight security in place. Two armoured tanks, armed policemen and MOPOL were seen around the area, along the Airport Road.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks believed to be the handiwork of Boko Haram terrorists.
