Official: Multiple Bomb Blasts in Nigerian Capital, 15 Dead
[NYTIMES] Several bombs in two locations of the Nigerian capital, Abuja, killed at least 15 people, the National Emergency Management Agency said Saturday.

The kabooms Friday night were in Nyanya and Kuje, suburbs of Abuja, agency front man Sani Datti said in a statement. He said 13 people died in the blast in Kuje and two in Nyanya. At least 41 people were maimed, Datti said.

No group has grabbed credit but the attack is similar to others by Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
, Nigeria's home-grown Islamic murderous Moslem group. Boko Haram has largely been carrying out attacks in the country's northeast but has been extending its range to other cities.

Violence from Boko Haram's six-year insurgency has killed nearly 20,000 people and displaced 1.4 million from their homes. At least 1,000 people have been killed since President Muhammadu Buhari took office earlier this year with the promise of wiping out the bad boys.

Four jacket wallahs killed at least 10 people Thursday in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, the army said. No group grabbed credit but Nigerian security forces blamed Boko Haram, which is based in the area. At least 39 others were maimed in the attack in the Sareji neighborhood of Maiduguri, military front man Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman said.
