The capital of Nigeria, Abuja, had a curfew instituted in June after a series of bomb attacks by the Islamic sect Boko Haram. Bomb attacks at a police headquarters killed eight, another bombing of a beer garden killed 25 people and a car bomb killed 10. In the northeastern city of Maiduguri, 14 were killed in attacks on police stations and a church.
