The blast occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning while worshippers were holding prayer.
"The roof was blown off. People near the mosque said the prayer was mid-way when the bomber, who was obviously in the congregation, detonated his explosives".
Eight people were critically injured and more than 30 others hurt but in stable condition, said Idris Garga, the northeast regional coordinator for Nigeria's national emergency agency.
