'Many killed' as suicide bombers hit Adamawa mosque

Mubi resident Abdullahi Labaran said the first bomber mingled with worshippers who had gathered for prayers at the mosque at the edge of the market

"The mosque roof was blown off and the prayer was midway when the bomber, who was obviously in the congregation, detonated his explosives", Danladi said.

A medical source at the Mubi General Hospital says they had "so far received 37 dead bodies and dozens of injured from the two blast scene".

The second bomber blew himself up among the crowds of worshippers, traders and shoppers who fled the mosque towards the butchery section of a nearby market.

Police in Adamawa state said they suspect the Islamist group Boko Haram of being behind the attacks.

The blast was coming after the one that occurred in a Mosque in November in Mubi past year that claimed about 50 lives.

According to reports, the explosion was caused by suicide bombers, who detonated their bomb vests at the busy market.

However, Pruitt maintained that he was "not aware" of the amounts, or that he was bypassing certain procedures. "She is a friend". Sarah Greenwalt, Pruitt's 30-year-old senior counsel, received a raise of over $66,000, bringing her salary to $164,200.

More than 30,000 people have been killed in the insurgency, which has also forced some two million to flee their homes.

Boko Haram has regularly targeted Mubi town and held territory in Adamawa state in 2014 before being pushed out by troops in early 2015.

Now, Buhari has said that he wants to contest in the upcoming national election.

Nigeria has been facing an insurgency of the Boko Haram jihadists, who have aligned themselves with the Daesh* terror group, outlawed in Russian Federation since 2009.

But the insurgents have carried out a number of high profile attacks in the last few months, including the kidnap of 111 schoolgirls from the town of Dapchi and a strike in the town of Rann that killed three aid workers.
