Nigerian striker Ikechukwu Uche has expressed condolence to victims and families of the twin bomb blast which rocked the outskirts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The blasts, which occurred at a bus station in Nyanya, hit commuters traveling to Abuja in the early hours on Monday- many of whom were reporting back to their official duties after the weekend break.
More than 72 fatalities has reportedly been recorded with another 124 injured.
“I would like to express my the deep sadness I feel because of the victims in the terrorist attack that happened in my country,” Uche wrote on his Twitter (@ikeuche9) feed.
“I want to send a big hug to their families and my sympathy.”
The Villareal marks man has not featured for the Super Eagles since February 2013, in an African Cup of Nations (Afcon) final match against Burkina Faso in South Africa.
