Another suicide bombing attack has left 5 people dead in Maiduguri.

The attack was carried out at a mosque in the area a militia member assisting the military against Boko Haram jihadists said.

The leader of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) in Ajiri Yala, some 15 kilometres (10 miles) north of Maiduguri, said the attack happened at about 4:30 am.

“A male suicide bomber disguised as a worshipper entered the mosque while people were gathering for the morning prayers,” he told AFP by telephone.

“He detonated his explosives. He killed five people and injured several others.” Yala said.
On Sunday’.

A CJTF member stationed at a checkpoint in the Muna area of Maiduguri was killed and another injured when two women strapped with explosives blew themselves up.

This recent attack is the latest in a string of attacks that are being ascribed as works of the Boko Haram sect.

Last week a village in Borno state was attacked by men suspected to be members of the group.

Last Sunday, 14 people were killed when three women detonated their explosives near the Muna Garage camp, which is home to tens of thousands of people made homeless by the violence.

The attacks in recent weeks are targeting communities that are located in remote and often difficult regions to where military patrols are minimal.

Two women detonated devices and blew themselves in the process in the Gulak area of Madagali, in the far north of Adamawa state, over the weekend

A former local government area chairman, Maina Ularamu, said there were two blasts in Dar village on Saturday night and Sunday morning.

“Our suspicion is that they intended to attack the church, which is located inside the primary school about 100 metres away from the scene of the explosion,” he said.

Ularamu said Boko Haram “remnants are still lurking” in remote villages and the Sambisa Forest, and troop reinforcements were needed.

Suicide bombing has increased in the region and despite claims by the Nigeria Army that Boko Haram can not launch organized attacks, this tactic has been successful in recent weeks.
