Suicide Bomber Attack Borno Mosque killed eight people

According to WorldLoaded News Reporter , Eight people were killed at a mosque in northeast Nigeria on Monday when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives, a civilian militia member and a local resident said.

The blast happened in the Mainari area of Konduga, in Borno state, said Ibrahim Liman, from the civilian militia force assisting the military in the fight against Boko Haram.

“The male bomber walked into the mosque at about 5:15 am (0415 GMT) while prayers were on and exploded, killing eight worshippers and injuring five others,” he told AFP.

“Seven of the victims died in the mosque while another died on the way to (the Borno state capital) Maiduguri.”

Suicide bombings against “soft” civilian targets such as mosques, markets and bus stations are the hallmark of the Boko Haram faction led by Abubakar Shekau.

Many of the bombers used are young women and girls. Liman said the latest attack appeared to be carried out by a man in his early 20s.

Umar Goni, who lives in Konduga, said he was on his way to the mosque when the blast occurred and he helped to rescue victims with members of the civilian volunteer force.

“We pulled out seven dead bodies and six injured worshippers.

One of the six injured died on the way to hospital,” he added. The bomber was disguised as a worshipper, he said, adding: “There was no way anybody could have known his mission.”
