Child suicide bomber strikes in Dalori mosque
A suspected member of the Boko haram sect attempted to commit a suicide bombing in the early hours of Tuesday January 31st but was foiled by an eagle eyed security man.
The attack occurred at about 5:40 am at a mosque in Dalori where Muslim faithfuls had gathered for early morning prayers. The attacker claimed two lives, that of the child suicide bomber and the security man that prevented him from entering the mosque.
Officers of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and Borno State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) arrived the scene and evacuated the remains of both casualties.
