At Least 20 Dead As Fresh Explosion Hits Maiduguri Mosque Today

It appears claims by the military that its has succeeded in curtailing the menace of Boko Haram may not be true after all as at least 20 people have been killed  in a fresh explosion that Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, Monday morning, as residents gathered around a mosque.
Premium Times reports that the explosion sounded as residents speculated that a fleeing Boko Haram bomber abandoned an improvised explosive device in the area during Sunday night’s attack on the city.
A police officer close to the situation  said the victims had gathered to investigate if a bomb was truly abandoned in the mosque.
I have never seen such foolishness when people would go peeping into a mosque to find out if truly there was an explosive deposited in a place. But sadly, the bomb went off and over 20 persons were killed and many injured.”
But the account of Malam Suleiman, a primary school teacher in the area, was slightly different.
“The people normally sit down around the mosque in the morning,” he said. ”The place is like a meeting point where neighbours converge to relax.”
“After the morning prayers they just sat down outside the mosque as usual and then the bomb went off. It was not suicide bombing like that of last night. It may have been planted.”

As it stands, Boko Haram appears to still be very active. May God rest the souls of the departed.

    It is expected that the coward s will always have soft target to make people believe they’re still existing. Nigeria military has done well by curtailing the B/H. May the lord continue to protect us.
