At Least 50 Killed In Bombing During Mosque's Morning Prayers In Nigeria

50 killed in suicide bomb attack at a Mosque in Nigeria

Tuesday's attack is the highest loss of life since 56 people were killed in the same state last December, when two schoolgirl suicide bombers killed 56 people and wounded dozens more in a coordinated attack on a crowded market.

"Some of the dead were in pieces beyond recognition", said Bayi Muhammad, a worshipper at the mosque in Mubi who said he only escaped the blast because he was late for early morning prayers.

"The bomber was about 17 years old", he added later.

Military and civilian militia sources in the northeast said the attack was likely to have been in response to recent increased ground and air operations against Boko Haram.

In October 2012, at least 40 people were killed in an attack on student housing in Mubi that was widely blamed on Boko Haram.

Salvation Army kettle campaign ready to begin
"People are working but they just aren't making enough to pay for the needs for their family". Small business can put small kettles near their counters to collect donations if they want to.

Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people during its eight-year insurgency against the Nigerian government to create a strict Islamic state in northern Nigeria, which is primarily Muslim. However, a reporter on the scene said the death toll was no more than 27, all men and boys.

Boko Haram held territory in Adamawa state in 2014.

But St-Pierre said despite this "Boko Haram remains an extremely potent and risky organisation" which was far from being "on the back foot", as the military has claimed.

Noting the current moves by the IGP to review police personnel and strategy in the state, the president directed him to visit the state and report back his findings about the deadly attacks.

The town's name was changed temporarily to Madinatul Islam, or "City of Islam" in Arabic, during the brief Boko Haram occupation.
