Scores of people were killed after a bomb exploded at about 6:55 am at the busy Nyanya Mass Transit Motor Park, Abuja and Nigerians are still in mourning.

The social media has been awash with messages of hope, prayers, and some blame trading as Nigerians try to come to terms with the act of terror.

Following the attack, Abubakar Adam Ibrahim posted a sobering update on Facebook.

"People who woke up with dreams and plans for the week only hours before have been reduced to tattered remains strewn on the grounds. Law abiding citizens, husbands, wives, dreamers, boarding buses to work, to pursue their dreams. But some maniacs set off a bomb and kill people, kill dreams. What can we do, Nigeria? What can we say? RIP, the departed," he wrote.

Prayers were said for the departed.

"R.I.P to the Nigerians who lost their lives in today's bomb blast at Abuja. It's really sad," @mzz_Portable wrote.

"Abuja bomb Blast: May the Merciful Lord give the families of the dead and the injured and their families, the strength to bear this tragedy," @tyleye tweeted.

Also, @pastorNomthi, tweeted, "My heart goes out to the victims of the bomb blast in Abuja.May the Lord comfort their families &put an end to these explosions in Jesus name."

Some folks like @chasideho were quick to lay blames.

"The Abuja bomb blast, FG is on top of d matter. Na so dem go continue to dey on top of the matter until d matter go climb their head," he wrote.

The photo spree that followed the blast also drew the ire of some people like Abdullahi O. Haruna Haruspice who wrote:

"Those of us that rushed to snap the mangled and shred bodies of the victims, how are we different from the lunatic that denotes these bombs? What is your pride in these callousness? Ordinarily, people run from the scenes of bomb blast because there is always the likelihood of having another blast followed the first one. While you celebrate your photographic fantasies, watch your back as you may likely be the next victim."

The police say that the explosion affected as many as 16 high capacity buses and other smaller vehicles, most of which where loaded with passengers.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that several dead bodies and human parts littered the ground in and around the park following the blast.

Meanwhile, President Jonathan has cancelled his trips and assured Nigerians that the Federal Government will bring the Boko Haram issues to an end.
