At least 50 people have died after a suicide bomber struck a Nigeria mosque as worshippers arrived for morning prayers in one of the deadliest attacks in the region in years, police said.
 
The attack in northeastern Adamawa state was carried out a young man carrying explosives.
 
Suspicion fell on Islamist insurgents Boko Haram, although there was no immediate claim of responsibility.
 
Police spokesman Othman Abubakar said the young man detonated his explosives while mingling among the worshippers.
 
Ahmed Musa, chairman of Mubi council, said dozens of people had been injured but the exact number of casualties was not yet known as the wounded had been dispersed among several different hospitals.
 
Boko Haram militants held territory in Adamawa in 2014 but they were pushed out by Nigeria's army backed by troops from neighbouring countries in early 2015.
