Boko Haram Explodes Several Bombs In Less Than 24 Hours, Military Task Force Defuse Bomb Carried By A 10-Year Old Boy

By SaharaReporters, New York

After a short lull in violent activities, Nigerian islamists group, Boko Haram,  resurfaced yesterday in Maiduguri tossing a bomb at the Joint Task Force in Kaleri, London  Chiki ward and starting a fire fight with the military men after the bomb exploded.

Early today the group also bombed a target near the College of Legal and Islamic studies in the downtown area.

Also the Governor of the state, Kashim Shettima, barely escaped a bomb attack as a 10 year old boy bearing a bomb approached his delegation where he had gone to pay a condolence visit in the AA Kotoko residential area.

Security agencies said they intercepted the 10 year old dispossesed him of the bomb and then defused it.

Meanwhile, residents said the military taskforce went berserk after the daring attack in the housing Estate at London Chiki ward. The security apparatus descended on civilians it had earlier warned to refrain from supporting the militants. Eyewitnesses said the military arbitrarily shot and killed innocent civilians in the area after the Islamic militants had fled.

A total ban on motorbikes in the city did not stop the militants from operating as they now use personal unmarked cars to carry  out their deadly operations.

Saharareporters could not confirm the  casualties in the latest attacks.

BOKOHARAM

ONE NIGERIA NO MATTER WHAT...................

State of emergency in borno and mardugiri

The presidency should without delay declear state of emergency in the affected areas to tacle boko haram issues. Reason aim at allowing the military to be in full control..not a partial one as the case now.

boko haram

I think Boko haram sect are lost muslims. they need to be guided in order to be on the right path.practice 'ur religion as prescribed in d Holy books or the way u want. the benefit of boko haram considering their activities is eternal DEATH. Prophet Mohammed(saw) lived peacefully with non muslim during his time on earth. Does it mean that Boko haram are more intellegent than the founder of ISLAM.

Please be Objective

Are u interested in solution to the problem or you want it to escalate? Where do you stand? When the so called Reverend King carried out the brutal act it was in the news and he still in Jail of it and he did not in any way attack the nation. The Arowolo case you made mention of is not your next door neighbour it was be it became an issue in the news that you heard about it. So what is your point. Please be objective yourself. Think straight. Are u educated? if yes then you are already a target of this boko haram sect either you are a Muslim or not so what are you saying.

Pissing

Lets just divide this useless country.

Let these northern bokos go and be eating their sharia and groundnut and let we southerners eat out yam and crude oil.

See somalia a sharia land, famine and drought is killing them daily. Thanks to al shabab militant.

This issue is simple....shikenah

THIS IS MY OPINION

THIS IS A NEW KIND OF ARMAGEDDON IN NIGERIA. THE EXISTENCE AND OPERATION OF BOKO HARAM STRIKES ME NOT ONLY AS A CONFIRMATION OF NIGERIA AS A TERRORIST STATE BUT ALSO GIVES EFFECT TO THE INTELLIGENCE REPORT THAT NIGERIA WILL MOST LIKELY DISINTEGRATE BY 2015. THERE ARE SO MANY FORCES WORKING TOWARDS THE END OF NIGERIA AS A NATION. IF I AM PERMITTED TO SAY THAT EVEN POLITICAL PARTIES THAT ARE PRESENTED AS PROGRESSIVES ARE EQUALLY CULPRITS. IMAGINE ALL OF THESE GROUPS VIZ; BOKO HARAM, NIGER DELTA MILITANCY, OPC, BAKASSI OPERATING AT FULL BLAST SIMULTANEOUSLY... WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BECOME OF THE CORPORATE EXISTENCE OF NIGERIA. IMAGINE!!
SO MANY OF OUR POLITICAL GLADIATORS ARE SURE OF THE REGIONAL LIMITS OF THEIR POLITICAL MARKETABILITY, THEY NEED A COUNTRY TO GOVERN AT ALL COST, THEY WILL GO TO ANY LENGTH TO CREATE ONE FROM THE MEGA NIGERIA. THIS IS ARMAGEDDON! GOD SAVE NIGERIA

In whose name was Reverend

In whose name was Reverend King burning and
maiming his congregation? In Jesus name I
suppose. So does it mean christianity is
like that? Arowolo, a born-again christian,
Murdered his wife in cold blood last week.
If it were to a muslim, the news would have
been different! Open up your objective mind!

Boko Haram

The Boko Haram people explode several bombs in Nigeria,but the Nigerians don't have the intelligence to face them,it is obvious they are out on revenge mission on innocent citizens of Nigeria
solution to it now is either to dialogue or to fight them.the government should borrow a leave from other countries having similar problem

Their Should Be Dialogue Between The Boko Haram &The Country

Nigeria should not blame the northerners,on Boko Haram issue. Even the northerners are trying their best to curb this Boko of a thing. The Government of the country should come into compromise with the Boko Haram & ask them what is their problem & what do they what from the country? & why are they causing all this HULLABALOO to the citizenry of this country. The Executive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,the Executive Governor of Burnu State & the peoples of the Great Arawa should go back to their drawing board to find a away out of this QUAGMIRE.

Always in Nigeria lack of

Always in Nigeria lack of intelligence from the securities is worsen the security situation in the country.
I wonder why JTF felt to understand if a Gov. despite his security is terrify of boko haram, he knew he is not secured as boko haram can accomplish their mission on them.
then how can a typical civilian can cooperate with securities by providing them information about boko haram. which he knows if they boko haram detect him as informer they will definitely kill him.
And now JTF they killed innocent people , they don't think that those people have their children maybe youth which is most likely to join boko haram, because they are aware that boko haram are killing security agents ,and security agents are those who killed their innocent parents.
by so doing security agents contribute in the development of boko haram.
This left for Gej. and his PDP lead govmnt. to address the security challenges as matter of urgent in this country, if not am sure there is no future fore Nigeria and Nigerians as well.

Re: Curious 1

Thank u so much for making us to renew our faith in Allah, the Arabic word for God in English Language. if u are a Christian, pls see a reasonable Pastor to tell u more of Christianity. Its teaching is entire different from fanaticism which you portraited in ur piece and that is one major thing Nigerians shd avoid in this trying moment of ours. Religion is not a play writing or singing. If you are not a follower of any religion am sorry u ought to embrace one and i wish u ll embrace ISLAM in order to appreciate God (Allah).

@DON JOY!

@DON JOY: Your vent of anger on Curious was misplaced. Inasmuch as you stated matter of factly, such statements should have been directed at your Northern Muslim brothers. But come to think of it, is it not that Muslims are minority in the South that is why they are not troublesome in the South? To me, my brother, Islam is synonymous with VIOLENCE. And for ALLAH being the same Chineke, Olorun, and God, I disagree because Chineke, Olorun and God of the Chistrians does not command one man, four wives; does not promise a reward of 1000 virgins for shedding innocent blood. Then you want to ask, "Who is this Allah?" He is an Arabic Demon.

@Curious1: Neither Flesh and

@Curious1: Neither Flesh and blood nor their Allah revealed this to you but the spirit of the Almighty God did. You are a child of God indeed bubbling in the Holy Ghost. Any Southerner still in the North might go down with the bullets any day. Many words might not be enough even for the FOOLISH.

devilish pple are all from

devilish pple are all from the north

Northerners(mus) should start there country, they are devilish

why cant we all bear our fathers name, as pakistan leave india, i think the northerners need to leave this country, we are tired of them, they are full of evil

Kudos

Wow, facts and figure

Islam is truly religion of Violence

Many muslims are quick to jump into defence that BH are not muslim or Islam is a religion of violence. A question for these guys trying to defend what is not: in whose name is Bako Haram operation, please follow this blog and be a judge for yourselves
www.yusufislamicbrothers.blogspot.com

God will reward all that takes innocent life and shed blood. Am not against direct attack on thiefing, stealing, looting leaders but it should be done in a civil and direct approach not killing a poor man on the street.

Please tell JTF or whatever

Please tell JTF or whatever they call themselves to STOP i repeat STOP maltreating innocent citizens of Maiduri, killing people and burning down their properties for no reason, this is not the solution to end Boko Haram menace.
You can't continue chasing people from their domain.

End times Indeed!!!

I appeal to all muslims on this forum not to answer this so called Devil Curious 1.May Allah gives him what he deserve.

No One seems to notice the military went berserk

We're here arguing Boko Haram and bashing Islam, did anyone not read the part of the article where they said the military went berserk on the civilian population ?

Army recruiting more Boko Haramists

By shooting innocent civillians and burning their houses, the army is merely inviting more sympathy for Boko Haram.
The Nigerian authorities are totally useless in fighting terrorism. Raining personal abuses on them e.g. president calling them cowards and the army killing civillians as shown on BBC won't solve the issue. The story about the 10 yr old boy is planted to make people lose sympathy for them. Either way Nigeria is doomed.
Curious 1 is also a plant working for a terrorist agenda. He seeks to provoke a war that will consume innocents. This bastard posts on various Nigerian publications in various names but uses the same language. These yoruba CIA agents like Curious 1 should not be allowed to succeed. Many born again members & pastors in Nigeria are CIA agents trained to destabilise the whole of West Africa so USA can steal all our resources & colonise us. Africa must develop and stop this senseless violence.

CURIOUS1 THE ULTIMATE GAFEE

I can see that you are bereft of ideas and one of the minor descendants of the devil. You don’t even know the meaning of Allah and I can see you abusing God out of ignorance or deliberately because of your short and cripple knowledge of languages, syntax and their corresponding meanings. For the benefit of those seeking for knowledge, let me use your deformity to elucidate the meaning of Allah. I may not know which are of this clime you emerged but in Ibo language they say CHINEKE, Yoruba will say Olorun. See other translation of God as follows; English –God, French –Dieu, Arabic –Allah, Spanish - Dios. Is it written as G-O-D in Hebrew, Greek or original Bible before the English translation. I am not faulting your criticism of the Boko Haram, because all preaching eschew violence. Learn more about this plea.
I am sure this curious 1 is one of the demons fanning embers of discord in this country. Has he ever heard of religious intolerance in Yoruba Land? If only you have traveled before, you would have seen how Muslims and Christians share religious beliefs together in my home town of Abeokuta. If you have ever seen where Christians give out their proposed church building land to Muslims to for temporary worshiping on Sallah`s day. If you have ever seen where Christians breakfast with Muslims, then you will know that the religious bigots have nothing to do with the preaching of Allah.

"The difference between the

"The difference between the Bible and the Qur'an is that one claim to be directly dictated by god and the other is a series of stories, accounts, moral tales etc written by many people. Because it was written by people it can be challenged, debated, on the other hand many Muslims feel they cannot challenge the word of god -
The Christians have realized this and over 2000 years the interpretation and meanings have been subject to introspection, conflict and agreements and will continue to do so. The result is that in 2011 here is a religion who whilst split into many differing sects in the main rub along fine. Religious killings for Christians have largely been relegated to history NJ if you had not noticed
The Muslims on the other hand have a set of words that are largely unchallenged since about 670AD when 40 years after Mo's death they were written by several of Mo’s close allies (I wonder if they recalled his muttering of over 40 year without erring?) Considering your statement perhaps your were ignorant of that fact or expected the reader to be so.
The initial violent spilt of Sunni/Shia which of course still accounts for tens of thousands of religious deaths each year was a major issue and since then many others who have challenged the doctrine have been systematically persecuted.
So here we have the real issue don’t we - The Qur'an and hadriths were designed (or given) by men 1400 years ago and for some progressive Muslims the meaning is interpreted as a means to live a good life, they conveniently ignore the nasty bits - sadly they do so without challenging the doctrine - why?
Well to challenge the doctrine is to challenge the prophet and that of course is punishable by death, a punishment often meted out by mobs or terrorists. Simultaneously those who want to use Islam to gain power can and do use it to justify oppression and even killing.
In summary the Qur’an is a book of contradictions (please don’t embarrass yourself and ask for examples) just like the Bible and is used by many to live a peaceful life. But it is used by many to live a violent life filled with oppression and killing in the name of god.
Sadly it is those who are writing the agenda, it is those who are painting Islam as a regressive medieval religion an intolerant religion and bringer of death and it is because of that we are seeing rising levels of Islamic violence – mainly of course killing or oppressing other Muslims.
I fully expect you to revert to type and go into denial or hate pointing – that’s fine I live it every day

Bokoharam

Ahmadinejad sani yarima is their financier SSS should question him along with some persons in borno and zamfara states

AT PEACE

Abusing people,their prophet and their religion is the sign of a weak and seriously troubled mind.Allah is God.Christians in the North,in the middle east and parts of asia call God Allah.

End times indeed !!!

We're definitely in the end times for sure !!

Things are going to get progressively worse unfortunately. allah aims to strike fear in to the heart of the "infidels" through Boko Haram till they bow to allah, and allah also seek to control buying and selling through Sanusi and Islamic banking -they have already started laying the foundation !!

It was no accident Yaradua died on the laps of allah in Saudi Arabia while desperately trying to revive him. The islamic marabouts could see his sickness is spiritual than physical hence Saudi Arabia instead of Europe or America where the experts are !!

However the filthy, bloodthirsty demon called allah and his sexual pervert, pedophile, epileptic prophet mohamed are on a one way ride to eternal destruction. As allah's time gets shorter and shorter we're going to see more of these violent lashing out.

Anyone southerner with relatives in the north should advise them to relocate ASAP. Those who have ears .........

I'm Christian

I'm a christian,
lets live Mohammed out of this, if you get to meet the real Muslims, you will desire to be a Muslim, boko harams are demons nd God will put them to shame in JESUS Name,
