Another attack has been launched in Maiduguri, the insurgency-ravaged capital of Borno State, witnesses and security sources say.
They said the latest explosions were detonated by suspected teenage girls. Many people are feared dead, and several others injured, witnesses said.
Yunusa Abdullahi, a civil servant who live in Jiddari Polo area of the city, said aside the mosque attack, two girls detonated explosives at a neighbourhood called Buraburin.
“A man saw two girls walking around and he tried to caution them to be careful as it was dangerous for them to be wandering when the two girls detonated themselves, killing the man and some other persons,” Mr. Abdullahi said.
“Since last night, residents have been finding undetonated bombs believed to have been abandoned by Boko Haram gunmen.
“We are under siege and we don’t know how many of these bombs or these female suicide bombers were sneaked into Maiduguri.”
The Borno State Police Command could not be reached at this time to comment for this story.
