A fresh explosion, which killed 20 persons, is reported to have rocked Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Monday morning, as residents gathered around a mosque.

The victims were said to have gathered to investigate if a bomb was truly abandoned in the mosque, following the rumor that a fleeing Boko Haram bomber abandoned an improvised explosive device, IED, in the area during Sunday night’s attack on the city.

Speaking with Premium Times, a police officer said: “I have never seen such foolishness when people would go peeping into a mosque to find out if truly there was an explosive deposited in a place. But sadly, the bomb went off and over 20 persons were killed and many injured.”
