Suspected Boko Haram Terrorists Kill 44 Inside Borno Mosque

Abu ShekauGunmen, suspected to be Islamic militants on Sunday killed 44 people who were praying in a mosque in Konduga, about 35 kilometres outside Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

Although the killing took place on Sunday morning, the Associated Press (AP) quoted security sources as saying the bodies were counted yesterday.

The killing it said, was perpetrated by militants. Along the way from Maiduguri to Konduga, members of Civilian JTF encountered ‘fierce resistance from heavily armed terrorists’, said Usman Musa of the Youth Vigilance Group.

Four people from the civilian group were also killed after responding to calls for help.

It was learnt that the killers wore military uniforms to gain entry into the mosque before carrying out their dastardly act. No group has claimed responsibility yet for the incident but the attack bears similar pattern to those carried out by Islamist organization, Boko Haram.
