55 killed, 100 injured as Boko Haram hits Maiduguri, Yola mosques

Terror sect, BokoHaram, yesterday  let loose  its suicide bombers  on worshippers  in Maiduguri and Yola, leaving at least 55 people dead  in both attacks.

Twenty-eight  worshippers were feared killed during the  Fajr (early morning prayer)  in a mosque at  Jiddari Polo area of  the Borno State capital. Time was 5 am.

Umar Sani, a civilian vigilante assisting the military in the counter-insurgency, and local resident Musa Sheriff both told AFP there were two blasts at the mosque.

“I was involved in the evacuation. We counted 28 dead bodies apart from the two bombers, who were identifiable by the mutilation of their bodies,” said Sani.

“Over 20 other people were injured.”
