A suicide bomber attack killed 22 persons and injured 11 others at mosque in Borno State this morning.

A member of the youth vigilance group told our correspondent that the suicide bomber attacked a mosque in Molai-Umarari village, behind the Molai Hospital, on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the state capital.

According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the incident occurred at about 5am during the Muslim early morning prayers.

He said members of the youth vigilance group subsequently trooped to the area to offer assistance to the injured and get the dead to the mortuary.

“Presently I am at the scene of the attack, we have our men here with soldiers and emergency workers who are working to bring back normalcy and get both the dead and injured to the hospital,” he said.

Molai is about 10 kilometres from Maiduguri on the Maiduguri-Damboa-Biu Road.
