Mubi twin blast: 27 confirmed dead

Mubi twin blast: 27 confirmed dead

No-one has yet said they were behind the bombings, but the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has launched previous attacks in Mubi.

At least 24 people died on Tuesday in two explosions at a mosque in Mubi, a town in north east Nigeria.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the blasts bore the hallmarks of the armed Boko Haram group, which has waged a deadly campaign of violence in Africa's most populous country since 2009, and often deploys suicide bombers in crowded places.

Witnesses say one bomber detonated his explosives at the mosque, while the other struck a few minutes later in a crowd of worshipers who had fled to a nearby market.

Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central has condemned the attack on Mubi town which left 27 people dead.

The attack is still under investigation, and police will continue to search for a motive of this gruesome attack. The video obtained from a Yonge Street storefront, shows the van speeding down the wide sidewalk at 1:24 p.m.

The blast was coming after the one that occurred in a Mosque in November in Mubi a year ago that claimed about 50 lives.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been in the United States this week and met his USA counterpart Donald Trump, who pledged more support in the fight against Boko Haram.

This is the second time in six months that dozens have been killed in an attack on a Mubi mosque. At least 15 people were killed and 83 injured when militants descended on the city in early April.

Jibrilla, who was represented by his media aide, Macaulay Hunohashi, said the state commissioner of health has been directed to move to the local government to assist the surviving victims of the attack. It did not disclose details of the faction with which it had held discussions.

In 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari took office with a promise to end Boko Haram's push to create an Islamic state in the northeast.
