50 people were killed in a Boko Haram suicide bomb attack on a Muslim procession Zuhr prayer around 1:15pm in the northern Nigerian state of Borno (Maiduguri) on the 10th of November 2014. The incident occurred in the village of Kanuri along Bama road some 20 kilometers away from the state capital Maiduguri. “Our procession came under a suicide attack,” said by one of the victims who was leading thousands of Islamic Movement of Nigeria followers, told our correspondence. “This will not deter us from our religious observance. Even if all of us were bombed the last person will carry on with this duty,” He further stressed. The bomber, whom was said to be seen in the area dressed in black like the majority of the procession, ran into the crowd and before he could be spotted, he had detonated the bomb, one of the organizers told our reporters. “His accomplice was initially arrested and confessed they were sent by Boko Haram,” the unnamed organizer said. The two attackers were among the young men abducted by the terror group in the Borno state town of Mubi in early 2014.

Further more, the bombing attack which hits the mosque when the Muslims were gathered praying claimed many lives about 50 and injured many, it was reported that “people too elderly to flee Gwoza Local Government Area were being rounded up and taken out but the militants opened fire on them.” Over 60 elderly people in Bama (Kanuri village) were killed. Also “gory” video was released of insurgents shooting over a hundred civilians in a school dormitory, mosque and churches in the town of Bama Kanuri village as well.

On the weekend, a female suicide bomber killed eight in Nigeria’s northeastern city of Maiduguri. Boko Haram has stepped up its suicide attacks in Nigeria after a recent offensive by government forces forced them to abandon controlled territories.

The radical terror group is fighting to create an Islamic caliphate northeast Nigeria, with its six-year insurgency having left over 17,000 people dead. According to a report of Terrorism Index, Boko Haram were responsible for 6,644 deaths in 2014, compared to 6,073 attributed to Islamic State. Earlier precisely On 15 April 2014, terrorists abducted about 276 female students from a college in Chibok in Borno state. The abduction was widely attributed to Boko Haram. It was reported that the group had taken the girls to neighbouring Cameroon and Chad where they were to be sold into marriages at a price below a Dollar. The abduction of another eight girls was also reported later. These kidnappings raised public protests, with some protesters holding placards bearing the Twitter tag #BringBackOurGirls which had caught international attention

The Boko Haram insurgency all began initially in 2009, when the jihadist group Boko Haram started an armed rebellion against the government of Nigeria. The conflict takes place within the context of long-standing issues of religious violence between Nigeria’s Muslim and Christian communities, and the insurgents’ ultimate aim is to establish an Islamic state in the region. Boko Haram has been called the world’s deadliest terrorist group, in terms of the number of people it has killed
