22 worshippers killed in twin suicide blast in Maiduguri

Suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers killed 22 Muslim worshippers in the early hours of Wednesday and injured 35 others during the dawn prayers in Maiduguri.

Daily Trust correspondent reports that the blasts took place in Umurari Molai area of Maiduguri, capital of Borno state in a mosque.

The unidentified suicide bombers came into the mosque undetected while prayers were going on and detonated the explosive that killed the worshipers.

A female suicide bomber disguised as a man detonated one inside the mosque while another waited outside. When people came for rescue, the other one detonated her own outdoor, killing more people.

The sight of female body parts in the male section among the dead proved that the suicide bomber was female, Daily Trust learnt.
