At least 50 people were murdered during a suicide bombing in a northern Nigerian mosque, local authorities announced today (Tuesday). No terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for the attack yet however, Nigerian authorities believe that Boko Haram is to blame.

Dozens more people were wounded in the terror attack that occurred in the city of Mubi, which Boko Haram controlled up until 2015 when the terrorists were pushed out of the city.

Since 2009, more than 20,000 people have been murdered in Boko Haram terror attacks within northern Nigeria as part of the terrorist organization’s attempts to gain control of the country and establish an Islamic state. Furthermore, more than 2 million people have been abducted from their homes during the war between Boko Haram and the Nigerian government.
