At Least 50 Killed In Bombing During Mosque's Morning Prayers In Nigeria

"It was a devastating attack on the mosque as people gathered for prayer", said Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris, reporting from Nigeria's capital, Abuja.

Adamawa state police spokesman Othman Abubakar told AFP that "at least 50" people were killed in the Mubi attack, which saw the bomber detonate his explosives among worshippers.

It was learnt that at least 50 people were killed after the suicide bomber attacked the crowed of Muslim worshippers.

Abubakar Sule, who lives near the mosque, said he was present during the rescue operation and that 40 people died on the spot while several others were taken to hospital with severe and life-threatening injuries.

Noting the current moves by the IGP to review police personnel and strategy in the state, the president directed him to visit the state and report back his findings about the deadly attacks.
