Bomb scare led to the destruction of this mosque in Maiduguri


This mosque in Fori, a neighbourhood in Jere local government of Borno, was almost destroyed when a man mistaken for a suicide bomber suddenly 'appeared' as subhi prayer went on.

Worshippers, out of fear, brought down the wall of the mosque as they struggled to breeze out.

This is unfortunately the situation all over Maiduguri as bomb attacks increasingly become commonplace.

Appeal for support

Conflict Reporting is dangerous and risky. Our reporters constantly face life-threatening challenges, sometimes surviving ambushes, kidnap attempts and attacks by the whiskers as they travel and go into communities to get authentic and firsthand information. But we dare it every day, nonetheless, in order to keep you informed of the true situation of the victims, the trends in the conflicts and ultimately help in peace building processes. But these come at huge cost to us. We are therefore appealing to you to help our cause by donating to us through any of the following means. You can also donate working tools, which are even more primary to our work. We thank you sincerely as you help our cause.
