Jordan has condemned the bombing of a mosque in northeastern Nigeria on Tuesday which killed 50 people and injured many others.

The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Mohammad al-Momani expressed Jordan’s condolences to those who were killed or injured in the attack.

People were arriving at the mosque in Adamawa for morning prayers early on Tuesday when the bomb exploded.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but suspicion immediately fell on Islamist insurgents Boko Haram.

Boko Haram have carried out several attacks on police stations back in 2009, leading many residents to flee the city of Maiduguri.

Boko Haram is a group that promotes a version of Islam where it is forbidden for Muslims to take part in any political social activities that associate with western society. 

This includes participating is elections by voting and wearing clothes that look western such as tshirts and trousers.
