Boko Haram Militants Kill 29 In MaiduguriFeatured, Latest News, News Sunday, May 31st, 2015
A suicide bomber has killed at least 16 people at a mosque in the Nigerian city of Maiduguri, police say. Dozens more were wounded in the attack.
It follows an overnight assault on the north-eastern city by Boko Haram, in which at least 13 people were killed before troops were able to push back the militants’ advance.
The attacks came hours after Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as new president.
He has vowed decisive action against Boko Haram.
In recent years, the militants have killed thousands of people – mostly in north-eastern Nigeria – in its attempt to set up an Islamic state.
So far, no group has said it carried out Saturday’s suicide bombing.
