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.”
