Six people were killed on Friday when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a mosque in Damboa, north-east Nigeria, the AFP news agency reports.
Nigerian Army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman said the attack happened at about 5:15 am (04:15 GMT) in the town of Damboa, some 90km (56 miles) southwest of the Borno state capital, Maiduguri.
He blamed the attack on “two Boko Haram terrorists,” AFP quotes him as saying.
One of the bombers failed to get into the mosque because of security measures.
“However, the second bomber veered off and gained entry into another smaller mosque and detonated the bomb, killing himself and six other worshippers and injuring one other person.”
