The authorities have also previously played down casualty figures.

Boko Haram has regularly targeted Mubi town and held territory in Adamawa state in 2014 before being pushed out by troops in early 2015.

Nigeria's government and military have long maintained that the Islamic State group affiliate is a spent force and on the verge of defeat.

In recent months, Boko Haram activity has been concentrated in the far north of Adamawa state, around Madagali, near the border with Borno state. The blasts come a day after Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari met United States President Donald Trump and discussed the threat that the terror group poses in the region.

"How they think in terms of combat, in my opinion, is still thinking of things as conventional warfare", Lieutenant-Colonel Sean McClure, the U.S. defense attaché in Abuja, told AFP last month.

Witnesses say one bomber detonated his explosives at the mosque, while the other struck a few minutes later in a crowd of worshipers who had fled to a nearby market.

"Many of the injured who are in critical condition may not survive".

This is not the first time a suicide bomber is attacking a mosque in Mubi.

The Adamawa commissioner of police, Abdullahi Yerim, confirmed that two male bombers were involved in Tuesday's twin bomb attacks in Mubi town.

Mubi has suffered regular attacks by Boko Haram.

"At about 1 p.m.[1300GMT] today, a teenage suicide bomber entered a mosque in Yan Gwajo area of Mubi town and detonated his vest while people were praying".
