Nigeria - Bomb Blast Rocks Bridge In Populated Lagos City

Popular Nigerian Internet forum NAIRALAND is reporting a Bomb Blast in Festac, Lagos one of Africa's largest cities.
"A bomb just exploded on the Festac link bride Amuwo ODOFIN FESTAC, CLOSE TO MY OFFICE. I hear there are casualties" A forum user posted

"The police anti-bomb squad and the military have already taken over the area." another user posted afterwards.

As at press time it remains unconfirmed if the blast resulted from an accident or an attack from radical Islamist sect Boko Haram.

Boko Haram wants to carve an Islamic state out of Nigeria, a country of 170 million people split roughly evenly between Christians and Muslims. 

The insurgency is seen as the top security threat to Africa's leading oil and gas producer.

Nigeria deployed around 1,200 troops as part of a West African intervention force to combat Islamist militants occupying the north of Mali, and officials fear Nigeria's involvement could further inflame its own insurgency.
