5 church worshippers have been killed as a result of a bomb explosion when a lady carrying explosives walked into a church in Far North Region.
Reuters said the strapped lady had hallmarks of the Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram.
The lady who is about 12 years old walked into the Sanda-Wadjiri mosque of the Far North region at about 6am, Far North governor, Midjiyawa Bakary commented;
“The men were bowed in prayer when she came…Five of the worshippers were killed and the bomber also.”
This case adds to many others suspected to be carried out by Boko Haram. The terrorist group is noted for bugging children in its recent operations to strike its targets.
The group seeks to revive a medieval Islamic caliphate in the Lake Chad region where Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger and Chad meet.
Amnesty International revealed that that group has killed over 381 civilians in the past five months, over 160 being Cameroonians.
