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".

Tuesday's bombing brings the number killed in 2017 to at least 278, according to calculations by Reuters.

But St-Pierre said despite this "Boko Haram remains an extremely potent and unsafe organisation" which was far from being "on the back foot", as the military has claimed.

Boko Haram rarely claims attacks but the method is in keeping with tactics seen elsewhere in the long-running conflict.

"This year Boko Haram has killed 357 civilians during 55 attacks in northeastern Nigeria".

Lonzo Ball Had No Interest In Backing Teammates During Lakers-Suns Fight
As with most things Ball does, it created a bit of a stir on NBA Twitter. "We probably came in complacent". "I think we did that". For the third time in as many games, the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns got into an altercation late in the fourth quarter.

Nigeria's military, with help from regional allies, have succeeded in pushing the jihadists out of territory captured in 2014 and 2015.

Boko Haram typically mounts suicide attacks in crowded public places such as mosques and markets.

Boko Haram's jihadi fighters have been blamed for the deaths of roughly 20,000 people and the displacement of more than 2.6 million others in less than a decade.

Tuesday's attack was the biggest in Nigeria's northeast since two schoolgirl suicide bombers killed 56 people and wounded dozens more at a market in Adamawa last December. It mainly attacks military forces after quietly building up its strength over the past year.

However, President Buhari enjoined the people in the entire North-east to be more vigilant and report suspicious persons to security agencies in order to avert further attacks on soft targets by the terrorist group. The group held a swathe of land around the size of Belgium in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states until early 2015 but were forced out by Nigeria's army backed by troops from neighbouring countries.
