Alwaght- At least 27 people have been killed and 59 others injured on Tuesday in a double terrorists attack on a mosque and a market in the restive northeast Nigeria.

Abdullahi Yerima, police commissioner in Adamawa state, said a suicide bomber detonated explosives at the mosque at about 1pm (12:00 GMT) and a second bomber exploded a device 200 meters away as worshippers fled in the town of Mubi.

It was the second time in six months that dozens have been killed in an attack on a Mubi mosque. Last November, a teenage suicide bomber attacked worshippers as they gathered for morning prayers, killing at least 50 people in one of the region's deadliest assaults in years.

Haruna Hamman Furo, the head of the Adamawa state emergency management agency, described Tuesday's attack as "devastating".

"The mosque roof was blown off and the prayer was midway when the bomber, who was obviously in the congregation, detonated his explosives," Danladi said. "This is obviously the work of Boko Haram."

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the blasts but they came a few days after the Boko Haram Takfiri terrorist group, affiliated to ISIS, attempted to infiltrate Maiduguri, the focal point of the nine-year insurgency that has killed over 20,000 in the country's northeast and displaced millions across the Lake Chad region.
