Mubi mosque bombing: 'Stop targeting civilians'-AI

Confirming the incident, the Chairman of Mubi North Local Government Area in the state, Musa Ahmad Bello, said: "The suicide bomber struck at the mosque during the morning prayer".

At least 45 people were killed in a suicide bomb attack in the same state last December.

He said that suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers carried out the attack.

"As people converged on Massalacin Madina at Anguwan Shuwa to observe Subh (morning prayer), an unknown man rammed himself into the mosque with IEDs [improvised explosive device], killing many people", a resident told the Premium Times.

He added that, "Boko Haram must immediately stop the targeting of civilians and must be held accountable for all the atrocities it has committed, including the use of children for suicide missions".

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.

Mohammed Asheik, from the Civilian Joint Task Force assisting the military with security in the northeast, said: "Our people went to the farm to work".

Boko Haram briefly overran Mubi in late 2014 as its fighters rampaged across northeastern Nigeria, seizing towns and villages in its quest to establish a hardline Islamic state.

The town's name was changed temporarily to Madinatul Islam, or "City of Islam" in Arabic, during the brief Boko Haram occupation.

Boko Haram has been blamed for more than 20,000 deaths during its eight-year-old insurgency.

He said, "Today's attack appears to be yet another example of Boko Haram's continued unlawful disregard for human life".
