Boko Haram insurgents, who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, have reportedly claimed responsibility for the multiple suicide bomb blasts that happened in Abuja last weekend.
18 people were killed and scores left wounded. The terrorist group released a statement on Twitter on Sunday along with three photos of suicide bombers involved in Friday’s deadly blasts. The astonishing thing is that a little boy was one of the suicide bombers.
The first two attacks happened in Kuje township, where a suicide bomber attacked a police station while another bomb was detonated at a nearby market. The third device exploded in Nyanya at a bus stop.
