Less than a month after suicide bomber’s attack in a mosque inside the University of Maiduguri, another suicide bomber attempted an attack on another mosque this morning at Dalori quarters.

Dalori quarters is close to the University of Maiduguri.

The bomber detonated the explosive devise at a fence to the mosque because there are security vigilantes at the entrance to the worship centre.

One person was also killed from the explosion apart from the suicide bomber.

When contacted on the sex identity of the suicide bomber the Spokesperson of National Emergency Management Agency  (NEMA), North-East zone, Abdulkadir Ibrahim said: “The body of the bomber was so mangled and shredded that only health personnel or experts could determine whether it is that of a boy or a girl. Our role is to evacuate the bodies from the scene which we have done.”
