    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Sigho shot these photos in Abuja, Nigeria, of the immediate aftermath of a terrorist bombing of two of the country's major newspapers, "Leadership" and "This Day." 'The information I got from the people on the scene is that a suicide bomber drove in with a Toyota Prado SUV and detonated the bomb. Members of Boko Haram suspected,' he said. 'I saw a part of the "This Day" HQ damaged by the blast and the remains of someone taken away in black nylon bags, while other survivors were rushed to the National Hospital.'
