KADUNA, Nigeria (Reuters) - A powerful explosion struck the northern Nigerian city of Kaduna on Wednesday, killing at least six people, eyewitnesses said.
A local journalist contacted said he saw six bodies removed from the wreckage of the blast, which tore down several shops.

Another witness, Shehu Sani, a member of the Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria based in Kaduma, said there were several dead, but did not have a figure.

"There was an explosion in the suburb of Kaduna a few minutes ago. It destroyed buildings, shops. We are seeing human bodies being pulled out by security men. There were ambulances picking up mutilated human bodies."
