Dozens die in Nigeria mosque blasts

LAGOS - At least 39 people have died after multiple explosions in the Nigerian city of Maiduguri, an emergency official says.

Three female suicide bombers, thought to be aged between 11 and 15, struck on Friday morning, an official with the National Emergency Management Agency told BBC Hausa.

It follows bomb attacks on a mosque on Thursday, which killed at least 32.

Maiduguri is often targeted by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

No group has yet said it was behind the attack during Thursday's evening prayers, that also left many people injured.

More than 100 people were killed in three explosions in the city last month.

Stupid black Nigerians killing each other for a religion foreign to their culture. They forget too quickly their ancestors were even enslaved by peddlers of this wierd religion. I hope the influence of this religion remain north of the equator because with many Zimbos with a bambazonke mentality it will not be long before Zimbabwe is contaminated. Dangote is coming to Zimbabwe with his money and a black face but we don`t know what is hidden in his thick briefcase.

Now that these fundamentalist Islamists, Boko Haram, have taken to bombing their own holy shrines to spite those within Islam who are not keen to support them, just shows how the tag "rebels without a cause" neatly fit on their shoulders.

FREEDOMFIGHTER - 26 October 2015

Oh my God!!! I deeply thank Cedric for helping me to win at a casino. I am a disabled person who had tried a lot of people but without help, but after I heard and read in the papers about people testifying about Cedric's free super casino/lotto rings (for gambling). I decided to go and have my last chance as I was in financial crisis. My house was about to be repossessed, my car was already repossessed, I couldn't even manage to put bread on the table, my children were extremely uncontrollable as I wasn't able to take care of them. I visited Cedric and he charged me R300 consultation, He prayed for me, gave me the free super magic ring & I went to the casino. Immediately I was winning at the tables, I was so surprised, I tried the machines and I won jackpots after jackpots. I deeply send my appreciation to Cedric because my family is together again. I paid off my debts, house bonds and I am happy in my new business. call +27604180512 Email at profashaf@gmail.com OR www.profshaf.co.za
