Abuja Bomb Blast Updates and the Fall-outs

It has been a gruesome and heart-wrenching day in Abuja as the bomb blast that rocked the El-rufai park at Nyanya, Abuja claims over 71 lives and left more people injured.

President Goodluck Jonathan also visited the blast scene as well as the National Security Advisor and other government officials. Jonathan also visited victims who are currently being treated at the Asokoro hospital and was obviously shocked and pensive throughout the tour. He has asked that all victims be treated with the best of care and security beefed up in every part of the FCT.

The suicide bomber was also identified and pictures have been documented copiously by citizen journalists.

The call also went viral for willing citizens to donate blood for the rescue of some of the victims and it received massive publicity and even diplomatic compliance as the British High Commissioner donated blood as seen in the picture.

This incident has had the ruling party PDP blame the opposition party APC for the incident saying the incident is clearly politically incited.

In all, we can only hope that we as Nigerians can arise and seek for an end to this menace even as we battle corruption and other vices.
