By SaharaReporters, New York

Suspected Boko Haram sect members last night shot dead five persons they found playing cards in Gombe, Gombe State. Several others were also seriously injured. Aside from the five that were confirmed dead, ten victims are reportedly in critical condition from bullet pellets that pieced their bodies. A security source told SaharaReporters that doctors in area hospitals were currently battling to save the lives of the injured.

One of the survivors disclosed that the sect members came on bikes chanting,“Allah Kubar,” then started firing at the group of people playing cards at an area called Angwan Bagadaza. A security operative confirmed the incident.

Our correspondent learnt that people around the scene took to their heels on hearing the spatter of gunshots.

Several eyewitnesses said that the attackers wore traditional flowing gowns. They also disclosed that the armed assailants escaped immediately after the attacks before the arrival of officers of the joint task force that patrols Gombe town. SaharaReporters learnt that the joint task force members launched a manhunt for the suspected killers, arresting one suspect.

"ALL THOSE INSULTING MUSLIMS AND ISLAM SHOULD ROT IN HELL STARTING HERE ON EARTH.. IN THE NAME OF JESUS..,". Jesus did not come to destroy. He came to seek and save. That is why He is called the Saviour. Even the quran calls him the "MESSIAH". You will be disappointed that ur wish will not come true. Allah excels in destruction and has never done anything constructive. But to be fair to him, he does not do any killing personally. Others do it for him.
"BRING OUT YOUR SAVINGS FOR WE BISHOPS TO BUY PRIVATE JETS-". The emirs live in opulence. They have properties in the choicest locations both at home and abroad and have harems of wives, concubines and 'those their right hands have possessed' with countless children who school overseas at public expanse while u live in penury.
"AND MAINTAIN COCAINE HABITS IN JESUS NAME..". Drug addiction is a muhammadan habit. That is why Afghanistan is number 1 in opium production and consumption.

@'MY BROTHER ISLAM MEANS' BY ANONYMOUS

"MY BROTHER ISLAM MEANS PEACE-". In which language? Those who speak Arabic say that 'islam' is an Arabic word meaning 'submission'. It is total submission to the will of Muhammad aka Allah. Islam neither means nor stands for peace.
"-IS CHRISTIANITY TEACHING JUSTICE". Yes. That is why the guilty is punished while the one who is wronged gets redress. Here is an example of muhammadan justice. The BBC On-line of Feb. 26, 2013, reported that a 15 yr old girl in the Maldives has been sentenced to 100 lashes. Her crime is that she was raped by her step father who went ahead to kill the child they had as a result of the offense. Very curiously, it is the victim who is found guilty of having had pre-marital sex. The assailant or rapist has not even been charged with any wrong doing in spite of the fact that he committed what is murder in every sane society.
Why are 'christians' who want to attack churches always caught when the muslims who actually succeed are never apprehended?

@Otile

It was a little bit of sarcasm from Sultanofsokoto, cerainly not meant to be taken seriously.

Major Gideon Okar - Why we struck

How many more lives have been lost to the Hausa-Fulani butchery since our execution in 1990? Obviously they run into their tens of thousands. We knew this would happen and that was what we wanted to prevent. Because of the possibility of failure we wanted to leave the message which some termed unacceptable and others, premature.

Nigerians can be forgiven for failure to understand the necessity of excising those states in 1990. But now, how many millions of lives, how much destruction of property, infrastructure and places of worship will it take to convince skeptics that excision is the only way to stop it.

We, that laid down our lives to save you:
Major Gideon Orkar, Captain Empere, Captain Dakolo, Capt Nonju, Lt. Akogun, Lt. CN Odey, Lt. Cyril Ozualor, Lt. NEO Deji, 2/Lt AB Umukoro, 2/Lt EJ Ejesuku, SSgt Julius Itua, Sgt Martins Ademokhai, Sgt. Pius Ilegar
and over a hundred others

In the name of Jesus ....

All those insulting Muslims and Islam should rot in hell starting here on earth..,in the name of Jesus.,,bring out your savings for we bishops to buy private jets and maintain our cocaine habit....in the name of Jesus.,....where is Reverend King the murderer?

My brother islam means

My brother islam means peace,not saying that is unfair just because some are hiding under the umbrella of islam to cause mischief.In same state(gombe),5 men were caught launching attack on church and are christians,same in jos and many more in south.moreso,we didn't advocate the castigation of christianity,is it not set up by CAN.IS CHRISTIANITY TEACHINGJUSTICE.

Islam is no relogion. It is a

Islam is no relogion. It is a feudal system of government.

My brother Sultanofsokoto,

My brother Sultanofsokoto, how can you say that Islam is peace. Do you behead innocent people and call it peace? Do you rape women for peace? Do you amputate people for peace? Do you burn down churches(arson) for peace? The Imam of ABU Ibrahim Mustapha has placed fatwa on anyone trying to erect a church in his University campus, it that for peace? My brother, Islam is not a religion of peace, and you know it.

Allah Dey kampe. By the

Allah Dey kampe. By the grace of Allah Islamic terrorists will decimate the relatives of those who oppress Ndigbo in the amalgamated continent of Nigeria. Wallahi! Karma is always at work here. The pogroms, lootings, rapes and mayhem committed against Ndigbo will hunt our oppressors even unto the 4th genaration. May their sponsors provide them with more arrows, daggers, bindiga, IED, machetes, to attack the lazy and oppressive people of Arewa.

truth

Islam is violent nd nt peace, pple hu tks away innocent lyfs nd destroys property worth huge amount of money, blood sucking insects lyk u.

judgemnt

Islam is a violent religion nd d God of heaven nd earth forbids d takin away of lives, dia chiefs nd top prominent sons nd daughters re fully in d knowledge of evry step d dreaded Islamic sect carries abt, d ent of dis bloody religion is at hand bcos d hole world wil team-up against Islam nd slain all its followers, blood sucking vampires.

boko haran stop killing innocent people.

what,s is d meaning of all this, the blood of innocent people will be on their head, but all those people they are killing everyday, are they from the north,

Allah self open mouthAYI

ISLAM IS PEACE does one need further proof:-/

Old News

These happened on friday at Bagadaza Gombe at about 4:30pm.

Hnmmmmm

This so called BOKO haram are just denting the Islamic religion!

Lives and property worth

Lives and property worth nothing in the north. The killings must go unabated until justice is done Ndigbo pogrom. They killed innocent Igbo children in '66-'70 but as karma will have it they now kill themselves. North is north only a barren region, it's cursed, doom and destined for failure until justice is done to Ndigbo. Execute the Ndigbo murderers or remain doom for life. Pure and simple!

Surely, continent Nigeria will be great

Up continent Nigeria!!! One Nigeria for life!!!

See how laugh dey catch me no be small...

How me go come from the same country with people for Sokoto & Zamfara? Imagine? How can? What is the 'similarity'? How I go come from the same country with people where the men dey bend down dey piss? This na heavy error Lord Luggard make, no be small.

...but for the love of my sweet oil&gas for which Farouk Liwan was compelled to reconstruct his cap to double as a mini cash vault, continent Nigeria would long have separated into its component countries.

...if the oil in the SS&SE dries up today, will there be Nigeria tomorrow?

Long live the United Rep of the oily SS&SE

old news

na old news be that ooo

I have said it that we have

I have said it that we have no president in this nation.what we have is a figure-head president.A government that has been busy steling money since its inception and care not about human life.Most corrupt govt.ever.God is the only security we have in this nation.

WHO 'Incited' The Killing Of 5 People Playing Cards????

The Immunisation workers were Murdered bCos D journalists/Wazobia FM incited their Killers. Na so.. We hav heard. BUT WHO/WHAT 'incited' d Killing/MURDER of people playing cards?? WHO Icited them 2go about like chickens without Heads Bombing Churches?? My point is d Root cause will NOT b addressed by banning & unBanning Radio stations! The Root Cause is the Doctrines preached by SEVERAL Muslim Clerics..the Doctrine that any1 who has a veiw contrary 2yurs Must b EXterminated! An example will suffice: Awhile back in 'Cosmopolitan' Abuja,a PUBLIC road ws Blocked during Friday prayers..a man Got out of his car nd comlained..that ws all the 'Incitement' Needed! The guy ws Thoroughly Beaten nd Had 2climb a fence in2 a strangers Crib 2escape being killed!
What PuZZles me is WHY some Northern(Hausa,Fulani) Muslims r SO MUCH MORE EASILY 'Incited' than their Southern counterparts..Or isn't it d same Quran they use??? Religion of Peace?? Hmmmm...
