Multiple explosions at a bus station on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital of Abuja on Monday morning have left an estimated 20 people dead according to a Time magazine report.
At least two explosions rocked a bus station near the Nigerian capital of Abuja during rush hour on Monday, killing many commuters at the crowded transport hub, according to Reuters.
A Reuters cameraman claimed to have seen 20 bodies at the depot at Nyanyan bridge, around 8 km (5 miles) south of Abuja, and two witnesses said another 15 had already been removed by the emergency services.
“I was waiting to get on a bus when I heard a deafening explosion then smoke. People were running around in panic,” said Mimi Daniels, who works in Abuja. Another blast followed, she said.
There has been no confirmation of the cause of the blasts.
