Bomb blast in Nigeria kills 20

A bomb killed 20 people in north-central Nigeria on Tuesday, a state governor said — marking just the latest in a series of recent deadly bombings in a country where the government is battling the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram.

Tuesday’s blast — which a witness told CNN happened at a local government building — occurred in the Sabon Gari section of the city of Zaria in Kaduna state, Kaduna Gov. Nasir El-Rufai said on Twitter.

“We call on our citizens to be vigilant and avoid crowded places like markets, mosques, churches and motor parks in the next few weeks,” El-Rufai said in one of his tweets following the incident.
