The latest Global Terrorism Index, published last week, said that deaths attributed to Boko Haram in 2016 fell by 80 percent.
But St-Pierre said despite this 'Boko Haram remains an extremely potent and dangerous organisation' which was far from being 'on the back foot', as the military has claimed.
As we reflect on 2017's hits (and sometimes misses!
), we long with enthusiasm for 2018 and the new challenges it will bring our way.
People near the mosque said the prayer was mid-way when the bomber, who was obviously in the congregation, detonated his explosives.'This is obviously the work of Boko Haram.'Yan St-Pierre, a counter-terrorism specialist at the Modern Security Consulting Group in Berlin, said the bombing fitted a pattern of previous attacks.'It fits with the increasing lethality and potency of suicide attacks of the organisation's current 'hot streak', which started approximately four weeks ago,' he said.
We don't suspect anyone specifically but we know those behind such kind of attacks.'The attack bore all the hallmarks of Boko Haram, the Islamist militants whose insurgency has left at least 20,000 people dead and more than 2.6 million others homeless since 2009.
Haruna Furo, head of the Adamawa state emergency management agency, and Musa Hamad Bello, chairman of the Mubi north local government area, both confirmed the attack.
The blast happened during early morning prayers at the Madina mosque in the Unguwar Shuwa area of Mubi, 125 miles from Nigeria's Adamawa state capital Yola.
It was the biggest attack in Adamawa since December 2016, when two female suicide bombers killed 45 people at a crowded market in the town of Madagali.
