At least eight people were killed on Monday when a female suicide bomber detonated her explosives at a mosque in Maiduguri, Borno State.

The head of the state emergency management agency, Ahmed Satomi, said the incident happened at about 6:00 a.m. in the London Ciki area of the state capital.

“She killed eight people and injured 15 others. The mosque was being guarded by civilian JTF (joint task force militia) during prayers,” Satomi said.
