Shehu palace hit by suicide bomber in Borno State

A suspected suicide bomber detonated his bomb few meters away from Shehu of Borno and the state's deputy governor around 2pm on Friday in Maiduguri.

It happened immediately after Friday prayers at the mosque in front of the Shehu's palace. A witness said a young boy of about 15years was noticed walking towards the two dignitaries before he was approached by the security men guarding them and then in the process of shielding him, the bomb went off thereby killing at least 10 people.

JTF spokesman in the state, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa confirmed the incident but said only 5 people were killed and 6 others, including the two soldiers, wounded by the blast.

The area has been cordoned off by army officials...
