Apparently taking advantage of the porous security situation in Abuja, daring gunmen have hit the Federal Capital Territory this evening killing scores of people and injuring others.

As at 9:05 pm 16 corpses were counted at the Emergency Ward of the Asokoro Hospital while ambulances were still rushing to ferry in more of the dead and the wounded.

The bombers, whose identities were yet to be unmasked, struck at the same transit point they attacked on two weeks ago at Nyanya in the suburb of the FCT just as workers who went for the a May Day celebration were retuning to their bases.

Unlike the last blast, which was targeted at the major bus terminal, the latest attack was concentrated on the opposite side of the terminal, which is used by commuters.

Security men, who were taken unawares by the deadly attack, as usual, promptly mobilised and blocked all routes leading to an from the scene of the attack.

The development meant worsened the gridlock on the Nyanya-Abuja-Keffi Road and frustrated many commuters.

More details coming
