President Goodluck Jonathan said on Friday Nigeria had entered one of the darkest phases of its history, visiting the scene of a bomb blast that had killed 21 people in an upmarket district of the capital Abuja two days earlier. “It is extremely painful that when some Nigerians are … working hard to take care of their families and train their children, others are busy planning to kill people, intimidate.” Wednesday’s bomb attack was the third on the capital since April, but the other two – car bombings of a bus station and street both in the suburb of Nyanya that killed about 90 people between them – did not strike at the heart of the city. On Sunday, Jonathan told a delegation of African bishops that Boko Haram was “even worse than the civil war” against Biafran secessionists that killed a million people In the 1960s.
