Abuja has increasingly been targeted by Islamist group Boko Haram, with three deadly bombings since April, including one in a bus park on its outskirts that killed at least 75 people. “Credible intelligence … indicates that terrorists have perfected a plot to carry out attacks on the Abuja transport sector … intended to cause panic amongst Abuja residents and visitors,” police spokesman Frank Mba said in a statement. Boko Haram militants, fighting for an Islamic state in religiously-mixed Nigeria, have killed thousands of people since 2009 and made world headlines with the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in the northeast village of Chibok on April 14. On the same day, the bus park attack – which took place less than a month before Nigeria was due to host the World Economic Forum – killed 75 in what was the first bomb in Abuja for nearly two years. There have been two deadly attacks in Abuja since then, including one in the upmarket shopping district of Wuse II.

The Cardinals mounted only three hits in seven innings off righthander Wily Peralta, who stifled the Cardinals for the second time this year here. That hit total was two fewer than the total for shortstop Elian Herrera, called up from the minors as a bereavement replacement for Jean Segura, whose 9-month-old son died on Friday. Herrera had four singles and a double in the Brewers 19-hit attack.
