Explosion rocks mall in Banex Area of Abuja, Nigeria's capital

An explosion rocked a shopping mall in Nigeria's capital, Abuja, and witnesses say at least eight people have been killed.

The bomb, concealed in an Abuja Taxi, went off at Emab shopping center after it was dropped by an okada rider.

An eyewitness said the bomb was dropped at the exit point of the plaza, where a mini taxi park where passengers are picked by drivers.

The yet to be identified man dropped the bag and the blast occurred minutes later at about 3PM.

Dismembered body parts are scattered around the exit to Emab Plaza.

The explosion is the latest of a series of violent attacks suspected to be by Islamic extremists. Nigerian security forces appear incapable of curtailing the near-daily attacks by extremists in the northeast.
