Abuja Attack: Boko Haram Claims Responsibility



Boko Haram in a new video obtained on Saturday claimed responsibility for the deadliest attack ever in Nigeria’s capital.

The bombing at a bus station packed with morning commuters early on Monday killed at least 75 people on the outskirts of Abuja.

“We are the ones that carried out the attack in Abuja,” Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau said in video message obtained by AFP.

“We are in your city but you don’t know where we are.” Shekau, declared a global terrorist by the United States which has a $7 million (5.1 million euro) bounty on his head, spoke in Arabic and the Hausa language that is dominant in northern Nigeria.

The 28-minute video made no reference to the abductions from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok but the military, local officials and girls who have escaped have blamed that attack on Boko Haram.
