At least two civilians were killed and a dozen others injured in a suicide attack near a mosque in the Far North Region on Tuesday night, a government official told Anadolu Agency on Wednesday.
The attack took place in Matakaye-Elie village, according to Far North Region Governor, Midjiyawa Bakari, who blamed the attack on Nigerian armed group Boko Haram.
Alahdji Yussouf, a member of the vigilance committee, said: “We do not know how he managed to outwit the vigilance committees to infiltrate the city.”
Gen. Bouba Dobekreo, commander of a joint military operation in the area, urged the population to remain vigilant.
Villages in the northern part of the Central African country regularly face attacks perpetrated by Boko Haram militants.
More than 15 people have been killed in such attacks since the beginning of the year.
