Emerging reports claims that a terrorist group, Boko Haram has bombed a Mosque in Gwoza, Borno state.

According to the reports, twin suicide bombers of the extremist group attacked the Mosque on Sunday, January 26 killing a 12-year-old child and leaving many people injured.

A security source quoted in the reports claimed that the suicide bombers forced their way into the mosque while prayer was ongoing.

Earlier, The Herald reported that Mary, the wife of Reverend Lawan Andimi, said she took solace in the fact that her husband did not renounce Jesus Christ before being executed by Boko Haram terrorists on January 20.

Until his death, Andimi, a father of nine, was the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The cleric was abducted on January 2 by Boko Haram fighters. His abductors later released a video that confirmed he was in their custody.

The abductors also increased their ransom demand from N50m to €2m (about N800m). It was gathered that he was killed for refusing to renounce his faith.

Mary in an interview with The Punch said that her husband’s refusal to renounce Christ in the video has strengthened her faith.
