A suicide bomber killed five people at the central mosque in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Friday, the military said.
The blast narrowly missed the deputy governor of Borno state, Zanna Umar Mustapha, and Borno's Shehu (regional religious leader), Abubakar Umar Garbai El-Kanemi, who were attending Friday prayers.
"The suicide bomber was about 15 years old ... Fortunately we both escaped unhurt," Mustapha told reporters.
Six people were also injured in the attack, military spokesman Sagir Musa told reporters.
"We don't know what to do now because we thought our call for dialogue would work but as you can see we have to think of other ways," Borno Deputy Governor Mustapha said.
