Two young Nigerian boys inconspicuously walked down the street of Mubi, little did bystanders know they were suicide bombers who would kill scores of people in moments. 

The boys separated, one entering a mosque filled with worshipers and the other into a bustling market. 

Their explosives detonated with devastating effect – killing 86 civilians and leaving 58 maimed. 

The terrorist group Boko Haram is believed to be the behind the plot. 

It fits their modus operandi of abducting children across the Nigerian countryside. While girls are sold into sexual slavery, boys are brainwashed to become child soldiers.
