10 dead as Boko Haram suicide bombers attack Maiduguri mosque
A reliable security source, who pleaded anonymity, said on Monday that the second explosions occurred at about 9.45 p.m at Mulaikalmari, some six kilometers away from Maiduguri.
"The bomb detonated at the entrance of the boys' residence. The injured was referred to the Specialist Hospital, Maiduguri", he added.
The head of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Ahmed Satomi, however, while giving account of the incident, said the blast happened at about 5:30 am (0430 GMT) in the London Ciki area of Maiduguri, which has been at the epicentre of Boko Haram violence since 2009.
The attack comes barely a day after a ten-year-old Fulani boy herding cattle was killed while his 8 years old younger brother sustained injuries in an explosion from a suicide bomb belt forcefully strapped around the elder's body by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.
The rampaging youths attacked the SEMA's Emergency Rapid Response team dispatched to evacuate corpses and to render assistance to the victims.
The Borno State Police Command, spokesman, Victor Isuzu, said the Commissioner of Police, Damian Chukwu, would brief the press later on the incident.
"On Saturday, about 10am, they went out for grazing at Baram and Tamsongamdu villages in Mafa council".
"They came in contact with Boko Haram terrorists elements. In the process of unstrapping the vest, the IED exploded killing Gambo Bukar alone, while Umar Bukar sustained injuries and was hospitalised". He added that an Explosive Ordinance Detective (EOD) team was deployed in the area and normalcy had been restored.
Three other female suicide bombers were located in Maiduguri at about the same time, said Satomi.
