Two people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a mosque in Dalori quarters, opposite the University of Maiduguri in Borno State.
The blast occurred during an early morning prayer session at the mosque.
A spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency, SANI DATTI, confirmed the attack, stating that the male bomber killed himself and another person.
Eyewitnesses say a loud explosion jolted residents when the suicide bomber detonated the IED strapped to his body.
This is the second attack around UNIMAID in two weeks.
Last week, a suicide bomber killed a university professor during an attack on a mosque within the university.
