The attack in northeastern Adamawa state was carried out by a young man carrying explosives, Independent reported.

Suspicion fell on Boko Haram militants, although there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Police spokesman Othman Abubakar said the young man detonated his explosives while mingling among the worshippers.

​Ahmed Musa, chairman of Mubi council, said dozens of people had been injured but the exact number of casualties was not yet known as the wounded had been dispersed among several different hospitals.
