The Nyanya bomb blast that killed over 70 persons today took many by suprise. No one expected this to happen. Nigeria president goodluck Jonathan had earlier boasted that bomb blast and bokoharam activities have been checked especially within the federal capital territory.
While the day lasted, i noticed a lot.
1) BAD NEWS SPREAD FASTER ; the explosion occured by seven. I personally heard it. Five minutes later ,it was reported on nta news. Ten minutes later ,it was on facebook and other social media.really faster than speed of light.
NIGERIA LIKE TO WATCH ; everyone rushed to the scene to the scene to take a look.those with phone took pictures .security had a tough time pushing people away so as to rescue injured.
CALLS CALLS CALLS
i recieved over 30 calls from various people.both enemies, friends,well wishers, villagers etc. Even those i hadnt heard from in 5 years had my number.
EVERYTHING IS POLITICISED
The Pdp speech blaming opposition for this was really bad.
VARIOUS PROMINENT men CAME TO THE SITE . PEople from nassarawa, minna and neigbouring state came to take a look. Helicopters were hovering round the site.
CONDOLENSE; dont be suprise to hear ministers, comissioners,musicians,governors ,pastors,immams,senators,etc all condol with deceased.
THE GOD FACTOR ; every one was thanking God for sparing their lives. But no one thanked God for those who lost their lives
