Lagos - The leader of Nigeria's Boko Haram Islamists has claimed responsibility for a June 25 bombing in the capital Abuja and an attack the same day at a fuel depot in Lagos, in a new video seen by AFP on Sunday.
The authorities tried to cover up the Lagos attack, describing it as an industrial accident, but an AFP investigation revealed it was a deliberate explosion.
"I ordered (the bomber) who went and detonated it," Abubakar Shekau says of the Lagos bomb, while claiming responsibility for the "bomb in filthy Abuja" that killed at least 22 people.
