Nigeria police say at least 50 killed in mosque bombing

Dear President Buhari You Have Broken Our Hearts

Information released by the Adamawa State Police Command revealed that the suicide attacks occurred at about 5:20 am local time, at Kunu Araha, a suburb in Mubi North by and was triggered by a teenage boy who set off the suicide vest he was wearing.

"It fits with the increasing lethality and potency of suicide attacks of the organization's current "hot streak", which started approximately four weeks ago", counterterrorism specialist Yan St-Pierre said.

"This is obviously the work of Boko Haram".

Boko Haram has waged an insurgency in northeastern Nigeria since 2009 in its attempt to create an Islamic state in the region.

Boko Haram has been blamed for more than 20,000 deaths during its almost decade-old insurgency, which has spilled over into neighbouring countries and displaced millions of people, creating a vast humanitarian crisis.

There was no immediate comment Tuesday from Nigeria's government or military on the attack.

On November 19, Boko Haram bases in the Njimiya, Parisa and Gulumba areas near the Sambisa Forest of Borno state were hit by air strikes, leading to "heavy losses", he claimed.

But it has been peaceful since the military and the civilian militia ousted them from the town, which is a commercial hub and home to the Adamawa State University.

Adamawa has been the scene of repeated attacks by insurgents in recent years.

Boko Haram held territory in Adamawa state in 2014.

"As I am talking to you, I saw over 22 dead with many injured including the suicide bomber, " said a resident who simply identified himself as Bello.

"It appears that despite open calls for Boko Haram to desist in such acts of mass violence against Muslim civilian interests, that these have not been heeded", he added.
