  • Mubi mosque bombing: 'Stop targeting civilians'-AI

"We have 50 dead and we are now trying to get the exact number of those injured", Abubakar said.

Amnesty International (AI) has called on Boko Haram to stop the targeting of civilians following early morning bombing at a Mosque in Mobi, Adamawa State, on Tuesday morning.

"The roof was blown off. People near the mosque said the prayer was mid-way when the bomber, who was obviously in the congregation, detonated his explosives".

Most attacks by the group focus on Borno state, the birthplace of the insurgency.

It is not the first time life has imitated art for Ford, famous for his heroic roles as Indiana Jones and Han Solo in Star Wars . Senior Officer Matt Alonzo of the Santa Paula Police Department was working the incident, which took place around noon.

Mubi is in Adamawa state, where Boko Haram held territory until the Islamist militants were pushed back by troops in early 2015.

While there was no immediate claim of responsibility, suspicion immediately fell on Boko Haram.

The cause of the explosion was the teenage suicide bomber, who came there with a suicide vest.

Military and civilian militia sources in the northeast said the attack was likely to have been in response to recent increased ground and air operations against Boko Haram. "The deadliest month was in August, when the militant group killed 100 people, followed by November, with 76 people killed already", he said.

In June 2014, at least 40 football supporters, including women and children, died in a bomb attack after a match in the Kabang area of the town.

President Buhari prayed that God would console the bereaved families in the Adamawa and Zamfara incidents, heal the injured, and grant rest to the souls of the departed.

He added: "Mubi is not far away from ... the epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency".
