At least two dozen people have been killed in a terrorist attack in the town of Mubi, Nigeria. The twin suicide blasts occurred in and around a mosque as people were preparing for their afternoon prayers.

According to reports, State police commissioner Abdullahi Yerima said the first blast took place at the mosque at about 13:00 (12:00 GMT) and a second bomber detonated a device nearby as worshippers fled.

At this time, no particular terror group has claimed responsibility for the attacks. However, officials suspect Boko Haram may be to blame for the devastation.

"Witness Abdullahi Labaran said the first bomber had mingled with worshippers and detonated his explosives shortly before prayers began. He said people in the mosque then fled towards a market where the second bomber struck. Many other people were injured and hospital sources said the death toll could rise," reported BBC.
