At least eight people are dead after a suspected female suicide bomber detonated at a mosque in northeastern Nigeria.

The government emergency management said only eight bodies have been evacuated so far by its rescue personnel, adding 15 others were injured in the attacks.

A reliable security source, who pleaded anonymity, said on Monday that the second explosions occurred at about 9.45 p.m at Mulaikalmari, some six kilometers away from Maiduguri.

The incident, which comes a day after the police confirmed a separate attack had killed two children in the area, is yet to be confirmed by authorities.

The attack occurred at about 5:00 AM, a witness, Malam Muhammad Grema told the News Agency of Nigeria.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that about four other persons were killed in a separate attack in another location in Maiduguri.

Mr. Bana said that the deceased and his brother were returning home after taking out the cattle to a nearby forest for grazing. "The injured was referred to the Specialist Hospital, Maiduguri", he added.

According to him, an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED), was said to have been strapped to one of the boys by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.

The bomb later exploded killing Gambo Bukar, while his friend, Umar Bukar sustained injuries and was hospitalized.

Nobody claimed responsibility, but the use of female suicide bombers is a tactic used by Boko Haram, which controlled a swathe of land the size of Belgium before being ousted at the start of 2015 by the Nigerian army and troops from neighbouring countries.
