He said there were multiple explosions at Ajilari Cross Evening Market, Ngomari Area of Maiduguri when a female suicide bomber blew herself up in the busy market, at about 7.45 p.m. local time on Sunday.

Isuku said another bomb was detonated inside a mosque while Muslim faithful were observing their evening prayers while a third explosion occurred when some suspected insurgents threw explosives into a viewing center A total of 54 people died while 90 others suffered various degrees of injuries, the police spokesperson told reporters.

The three blasts come a day after a new audio message purportedly from Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau accused the army of lying about successes against the militants. Reacting to the audio message, Col. Sani Usman, Nigeria’s military spokesperson, describes Shekau’s comments as “the rant of a drowning man,” adding that efforts are on to ascertain if that is Shekau’s voice.

He said the Nigerian military would not be deterred in its determined efforts of defeating Boko Haram terrorists in the shortest possible time. The military spokesperson added that the attacks signify high level of desperation on the part of the Boko Haram terrorists.

Boko Haram has repeatedly used suicide bombers to attack targets in Nigeria as well as neighboring countries like Cameroon, killing many people, mostly unarmed civilians.
