At least 10 people are feared dead in a suspected suicide bomb attack on a mosque in Nigeria's northeastern border town.
A suicide bomber entered a mosque in Gamboru-Ngala, a commercial town at the Nigeria-Cameroon border, early Wednesday morning during prayers, residents said.
"A bomber entered a mosque in the town and detonated his explosives. Nine people and the bomber were killed," Mustapha Grema, a resident told Anadolu Agency over the phone.
Another resident, Jonas Musa said he saw 10 bodies lying at the scene an hour after the incident.
"I went to the Catholic church opposite the mosque and then moved to the scene to see for myself what had happened. I saw 10 bodies," he said.
The military authority in the area did not confirm the incident till noon.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but residents say the attack bears semblance to previous bombings by Boko Haram.
Gamboru-Ngala, located some 185 kilometers (114.95 miles) from Maiduguri, the capital of northeastern Borno State, was once captured by Boko Haram in Oct. 2014 and liberated in April 2015 by Nigerian troops backed by the Chadian forces.
