Just in: First photos emerge from scene of Maiduguri bomb blast

Photos have begun to emerge from the suicide bomb attack by Boko Haram insurgents on a mosque at Dalori quarters in Maiduguri, Borno state.

The pictures posted by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) showed the agency's team cleaning up what was left of casualties of the attack which occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, January 31.

Additional pictures acquired by show the exact scene of the blast and the extent of damage done to the fence of the building attacked by the insurgents.

NEMA officials carry the body bags to a waiting truck as they cleared up the scene of bombing at Dalori quarters.

Other additional pictures showing the remains of the casualties were too graphic to be published.

Major-General Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, said the terrorists escaped through the bush after the attack in which a civilian was also killed while two others were injured.
