At least 54 people have been killed in a series of blasts in northeast Nigeria, the latest attacks by Boko Haram militants on “soft” civilian targets.

The attacks in the city of Maiduguri on Monday targeted the Ajilari Cross evening market area and neighbouring Gomari, hitting worshippers at a mosque and football fans watching a televised match.

The army and rescuers said the explosions were caused by homemade devices, but one local and the police said a female suicide bomber also blew herself up.

“Fifty-four persons died while 90 others were injured,” Borno state police spokesman Victor Isuku told reporters.
