A suicide bomber has blown himself up inside a

Mosque along the popular Yan Kwali area near the Monday

Market in Maiduguri, Borno state at about 3:40pm today,

30th of May, residents and a hospital source said.

The suicide bomber is said to have mingled with

worshippers, before detonating the bomb, seconds

after worshippers commenced their congregational

prayers.

At least 10 people have been confirmed dead by members

of the redcross at the scene, with several others injured.

The attack came less than a day after Boko Haram

militants launched intense grenade attack on the

city, killing about 17 people, just hours after President

Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as the new president.
