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

BREAKING: At least 50 killed in suicide bombing at mosque

NAN reports that the attack happened in Dazala area of Mubi town in Adamawa on Tuesday around 5 a.m. when Muslims were observing the early morning prayer.

Adamawa state police spokesman Othman Abubakar told AFP that at least 50 were killed in the Mubi attack.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility - though it was immediately clear who authorities believe might have been behind the attack: Boko Haram, a militant Islamist group that grew out of nearby Borno state. However, a reporter on the scene said the death toll was no more than 27, all men and boys.

Security analysts said it again underlined the threat posed by the Islamic State group affiliate, despite an overall decline in deaths from attacks by the group a year ago.

"It was a devastating attack on the mosque as people gathered for prayer", said Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris, reporting from Nigeria's capital, Abuja.

"Seven Boko Haram on two motorbikes met them and slaughtered two, then killed the other four".

The latest Global Terrorism Index, published last week, said that deaths attributed to Boko Haram in 2016 fell by 80 percent.

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

He added: "Mubi is not far away from ... the epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency".

Boko Haram fighters killed six farmers outside Maiduguri, the civilian militia and the brother of one of the victims said on Monday.

He said, "Today's attack appears to be yet another example of Boko Haram's continued unlawful disregard for human life".
