Massive Explosion Hits UN Building, Abuja!

The perpetrators of bombings in Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory seem to have defied all security measures as another massive explosion has rocked the region. The devastating explosion rocked the United Nations Building in the Central Area of Abuja on Friday morning.  Eyewitnesses said the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber who rammed a car loaded with explosives into the building having driven past the security barriers. Rescue workers, security operatives  moved in promptly to evacuate the building. While several lives were lost in the incident, about 300 United Nations personnel were believed to have been trapped in the building as at the time of filing this report.

The explosion is believed to have been perpetrated by the Boko Haram Islamic sect.  Suspected members of the sect had on Thursday hit police stations in Adamawa and Borno States before proceeding to rob banks in those states.
