Horror: 5 Worshippers Dead as Suicide Bomber Attacks Mosque in Maiduguri

4 years ago

Members of the deadly and highly dreaded Boko Haram insurgent sect have attacked a mosque in Maiduguri, leaving some worshipers dead.


It has been revealed that no less than five people have been killed on Monday when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a mosque in Borno.

A militia member assisting the military against Boko Haram jihadists made this revelation on Monday.

According to Agence France Presse, AFP, the leader of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) in Ajiri Yala, some 15 kilometres (10 miles) north of Maiduguri, said the attack happened at about 4:30 am (0330 GMT).


“A male suicide bomber disguised as a worshipper entered the mosque while people were gathering for the morning prayers,” he told AFP by telephone.

“He detonated his explosives. He killed five people and injured several others.”

Boko Haram typically never claims responsibility but has used suicide bombing as a frequent tactic in its eight-year insurgency to establish a hardline Islamic state

Mosques that do not ascribe to its extremist views are seen as legitimate targets, as are people and places seen to be supportive of the secular government.

On Sunday, a CJTF member manning a checkpoint in the Muna area of Maiduguri was killed and another injured when two women strapped with explosives blew themselves up.
