At least 54 people were killed and 90 wounded in a multiple bomb attack in the Northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Sunday evening, a police spokesman said on Monday.

"A suspected Boko Haram suicide bomber detonated IEDs (improvised explosive devices) at a mosque in Ajilari and some insurgents also threw IEDs at a viewing center. Total casualty figure is now 54," Victor Isuku, a police spokesman in Maiduguri, said, Reuters reported.

A Nigerian army spokesman said on Sunday that three bombs had gone off.
