In a statement made available to journalists on Monday, Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu, Deputy Director Public Relations, Theatre Command said the serial failures that have trailed their suicide bomb attacks recently indicate that the terrorist group is now exploiting deceptive tactics to lure unsuspecting members of the public to target areas before detonating their suicide bomb in order to attain maximum casualty.

The incident took place when the bomber forced her way to a mosque in Maiduguri city early Monday, Police Commissioner, Damian Chukwu said while confirming the incident.

Security agencies are yet to comment on the latest attacks in the region.

The rampaging youths attacked the SEMA's Emergency Rapid Response team dispatched to evacuate corpses and to render assistance to the victims.

Boko Haram has stepped up attacks since May when 82 Chibok schoolgirls were swapped with Boko Haram commanders.

The youths, armed with club and sticks, smashed one of SEMA vehicles and prevented the team from carrying out its mission. "The mosque was being guarded by civilian JTF (joint task force militia) during prayers", he said.
