Suicide Bomber Kills Seven Worshippers at Maiduguri Mosque

At least seven people were killed and several others injured when a suicide bomber struck at Gummat Mosque in Konduga town, Maiduguri, Borno State, very early on Monday morning.

The bomber, believed to be a Boko Haram member, detonated explosives in the mosque at about 5:00a.m., killing seven people and injuring eight others, residents and rescue workers said.

Those injured had been taken to a public hospital in Maiduguri, the state capital for treatment, a local official said.

The police, however, was yet to confirm the bomb attack as at time of filing this report.
