At least 50 people have been confirmed killed with many more injured after a teenage suicide bomber exploded
inside a Mosque in North-East Nigeria as people attempted to observe their morning prayers.
Police said a teenage bomber targeted the mosque in the town of Mubi, Adamawa state, as people arrived for morning prayers on Tuesday.
"We have 50 dead and we are now trying to get the exact number of those injured," Othman Abubakar, public relations officer of the Adamawa Police Command, was quoted as saying by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
According to NAN, the mosque is located in Mubi's Dazala area.
Although there has been no claim of responsibility by any terrorist or militant group for this tragic act, it is very similar to the antics typically deployed by Boko Haram.
Boko Haram led suicide bombing have resulted in the death of nearly a thousand Nigerians since this year.
