At least 12 people were killed and over 40 wounded when suicide bombers attacked a town in northern Cameroon on Thursday.

The dead bodies and injured persons have been shifted to a public hospital, he added.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The angry youths were reported to have attacked officials of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), who were on rescue mission at the scene of suicide bomb attack.

Some of them were heard chanting, "leave, we do not need your assistance". "The mosque was being guarded by civilian JTF (joint task force militia) during prayers", he said.

According to report, the residents of the area had tried to apprehend the suicide bomber who was looking suspicious, but she ran into the mosque and detonated the explosive strapped on her body.

The incident, which comes a day after the police confirmed a separate attack had killed two children in the area, is yet to be confirmed by authorities.

A witness, Grema Bana, said that the incident occurred at about 4:45 PM, at one of the pastoralist hamlets in the area.

However, the Sun newspaper is reporting that the attack was carried out by one female bomber.

He said: "The bomb detonated at the entrance of the boys' residence".

Three other female suicide bombers were located in Maiduguri at about the same time, said Satomi.

A security guard at the University was also killed from the explosions the bombers planted.
