(Reuters) – A morning rush hour bomb killed at least 71 people at a Nigerian bus station on the outskirts of the capital on Monday, raising concerns about the spread of an Islamist insurgency after the deadliest ever attack on Abuja.

President Goodluck Jonathan pointed the finger of suspicion at Boko Haram, although there was no immediate claim of responsibility from the Islamist militants who are active mainly in the northeast. As well as the dead, police said 124 were wounded in the first attack on the federal capital in two years.

  1. When will the Nigerians make the Muslims leave to become refugees in the UK? It is the preferential religion, the schools are being geared up for it.

    Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg, however…. would they pass the Kenyan Shopping-Mall test of knowing something about Islam? Not British enough to pass it. And there is nowhere in Europe they could run and hide… Duh! Russia.
