The Islamic State (IS) terrorists group has claimed responsibility for the multiple bomb explosions that rocked the nation’s capital, Abuja on Friday night.
The claim was released by the group in an Arabic message which was tweeted by Radio France International correspondent in Tunisia / Libya, David Thompson.
Thompson also tweeted pictures of the three suicide bombers the terrorist group claimed carried out the bomb attacks in the city.
He added that: “The # EI province West Africa (eg Boko Haram) broadcasts pictures of 3 of 3 authors suicide bombers attacks in Abuja.”
Boko Haram is the West African affiliate of the Islamic State group, after its leader, Abubakar Shekau pledged allegiance last year to the Baghdadi led group.
Two of the suicide bombers are relatively young with one of them looking blind in the left left eye.
