Boko Haram Storms Boarding School In Yobe, Kills 30 Students

By SaharaReporters, New York

Showing contempt for the state of emergency in effect in Yobe State, suspected Boko Haram militants today stormed a boarding school and killed 30 students.

A credible military source in Nigeria who confirmed the attack to to SaharaReporters said the incident occurred at the Government Secondary School in the town of Mamudo at about 2am.  The militants seem to have regrouped in a commando style to carry out the butchery, some of the victims reportedly burned alive despite soldiers all over the place enforcing the military emergency.

In addition to the dead, many others incurred serious injuries and were rushed to hospitals in Damaturu, the state capital.

One teacher, our source said, is among those killed.  Troops have now been deployed to the area, but the incident calls to question the strategy being employed by the military in their implementation of the state of emergency, and how much success they have actually achieved so far.

@'JONATHAN IS A STUPID PESIDENT I EVER SEE' BY GRAHAM

"-HOW CAN YOU CREATE A STATE OF MAJESTIC-".
Which one is that?
The President did what he is constitutionally empowered to do. He is required to give orders to the security agencies because they are the experts. He is not required to lead or take part in the actual operation. If those whose responsibility it is to execute the order bungle it, that cannot be blamed on the President.
You must realize that security is everybody's business and where the security operatives do not get the cooperation of the inhabitants of the affected area, success becomes impossible. The alternative is a total cleaning out of the area. But that cannot be the desired end as the uncooperative inhabitants are still nationals of the country. The military will take their time while the uncooperative inhabitants pay for their lack of patriotism by suffering at the hands of boko haram.

The Boko Haram Massacre In Yobe And the Presídency

Boko Haram struck and killed more than 30 innocent and armless children and their teachers in a secondary school in Yobe at about 2 a.m. on Saturday morning of 6 July. President Jonathan boasted of his government's security performance in that State in his statement at the Army Day ceremony in Abuja more than 8 hours after that brutal, wicked unwarranted massacre. Even if the Presídent's speech was written many hours before the ceremony, he should have seen the propriety of the reflection of that sad Yobe event in his speech. The slain boys and their teacher are a loss to their families who are mourning their surden and violent death. The President should be humane. Also, this lapse exposes the Presidency (his staff) as inefficient. The presídent on his part must be more careful and always cross-check everything presented to him before his action because the buck stops on his table.

gov adam is now idimin of edo state. red lips like?

Borno & Yobe are pawns in a game of Chess

This only shows the plot to render Borno and Yobe commatose thicken. While the question "why" eludes the retarded, only MEND and MOSSOB have the finances and ambition to see the North destroyed not without the help of some Northern sell outs off course. All of these satanic pple are in denial; the same way they are behind so much loss of lives, they to shall taste death

Jonathan and the Military should rethink strategy -1

What is the boko terrorism containment strategy of our Military in the state of emergency States? Whatever may be the strategic information leak by insiders that are sympathetic to their boko terrorists, by now the Military ought to have been able to contain the terrorists to at most minor or ineffective terrorism.

These sporadic but massive killing by the boko terrorists should not be occurring by now. One is now forced to ask for what is the emergency engagement with heavy Military presence meant if the boko are still so free to be invading Prisons, Police Stations, robbing banks and killing people in such large numbers. The Military ought to have by now in addition to road check at strategic places put a pocket of soldiers or Police at each of such places such as schools, etc, the kobo are likely to attack and could slip through to attack.

Jonathan and the Military should rethink strategy - 2

Although the northern Muslims are responsible for not reporting the boko terrorists, who are in their midst, their sons and whom they know and conspiracy of silence, this is not an excuse for the Military in their inability to get a tight strategy to contain the boko terrorists, corner them and easily got them on any mission.

Jonathan and the Military should rethink their containment strategy not only in the three emergency States but the other Northern States that have minor or serious boko terrorism. What we do is more of a matter of the right strategy and not primarily the number of personnel, equipment and fund.

As the boko and those behind them are apparently unknown, as you cannot continue to fight unknown enemy, while there are continued insider leakage and sabotage of the Federal Government and Military strategy, with these there is no doubt that the boko terrorists are sustained by each of the State Governments of the North and their very wealthy elite.

Jonathan and the Military should rethink strategy - 3

As most of us have suggested before, there should be a total state of emergency in these three States. The Military should be in total control while their civilian State Governments cease to function. The rest of the Northern States should be flooded with Police, Security and Military personnel.

Not less than two third of the Federal fund allocation goes to the Northern States. What do we get back from them; instability, insecurity and misery. This is not a partisan matter. Nigeria must be saved from the northern Muslims. We cannot allow the northern Muslims and their PDP in Government to continue to drag our country backwards and disgrace us before the world all because of Jonathan’s Presidency and foremost the elusive Presidency from their North.

JONATHAN IS A STUPID PRESIDENT I EVER SEE

Jonathan is a stupid president I ever see, how can you create a state of majestic in a state where the Governor are still in power, who the Boko Haram who are those fighting your government, they are the same people fighting you. You deployed Army into the state and Boko-Haram are still operating normally in the state as if there are no Army.

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 6

They are working hard in all manner of human endeavours trying to invent something and create wealth. For how long will the North continue to hold the South back? There is only one way out: let us restructure this country and let’s see if all these nonsense about creating and using Boko Haram as a political instrument to capture the Presidency in Nig will not stop. How come people want to hold Fashola accountable in Lagos, Peter Obi in Anambra, Amaechi in Rivers, Oshiomhole in Edo, yet noboody wants to hold anybody accountable for Nig? It's because nobody has a feeling that Nig belongs to him/her and that's why there is so much mess at the Fed level and no one cares. We all care about our states, s why can't we decentralize? Because the Hausa-Fulani feels that decentralization would mean the end of free oil money. So Nig must remain where it is.

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 5

All these ventures earn multi-billion dollars for Nig annually. The South is busy creating wealth but the North sits and wait for federal allocation.Even agriculture that is supposed to be the strength of the North has been abandoned. Aliko Dangote is supposed to be an example for the North but the people do not even learn. The only thing Northerners want now is to work in the Federal Ministry of this and that, Customs, Nig Police, NIPOST, Ports Authority, where the only thing is to collect salaries and estacodes, award contracts and embezzle funds (I am not saying they are the only ones involved). But I am saying that the South has more natural resources than the North but Southerners do not depend on these resources.

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 4

Of course these Northerners have their Southern Cliques. But here is a difference between the North and the South: The Southerners are building more private primary and secondary schools and universities while the Northerner are busy complaining about power and oil money. The Southerners are studying and working in Europe, America and Asia and sending more than $10bn home every year. These monies are used for school fees, healthcare, building modern houses and setting up businesses. But Northerners are sitting in Maiduguri and Kano waiting for oil money from Niger Delta. At the end they blame GEJ for their poverty, illiteracy and disease. The Ibos are trading with China, Japan, S. Korea and Dubai. The South is taking advantage of ICT for business; they have created Nollywood and Music/Entertainment, developing soccer stars etc.

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 4

It would be so bad if after manipulating religion to cajole their people for political ends, they built schools and hospitals, set up foundations and newspaper houses, set up banks and insurance and other financial institutions, or set up companies and so on. But these urchins do not and because the masses of the North are too blinded by religious bigotry to see what’s happening they continue to support a class of people who after 40 years in power their region remain the poorest in the country. Is it not time to ask questions? Can’t these people think? Do Governor Aliyu Babangida, Ango Abdullahi, Adamu Ciroma, Buhari etc have children who are Almajiris? Of course No!

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 3

Buhari said Boko Haram and Niger Delta militants are the same, yet, he has not been able to show us the number of school children or market women MEND killed in their struggle for resource control. How many schools or Mosques or churches did MEND attack? So, we can see the warped mentality of a power monger like Gen Buhari, a man I used to have a lot of respect for; but whom, out of craze for power has allowed his narrow religious ideology and political ambition to becloud his sense of judgement. How many of these religious bigots parading themselves as Northern leaders but who serve no other interests but theirs? They have used and continue to use their religion to manipulate their people for political power so as to get access oil money. It wouldn’t be so bad if after they they did a few things for their people.

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 2

When the temperature in Maiduguri hits 40 degrees they blame GEJ. When there is sandstorm in Sokoto, they blame GEJ. When Northerners kill innocent and unarmed NYSC members, they blame GEJ. When Northerners kill health and other humanitarian workers in Kano, they blame GEJ.I am not a fan of GEJ but as a rational human being, I don’t give him credit for the development in Lagos, Edo, Rivers and other functioning states with hardworking people. So also when things go wrong in these states, I do not blame GEJ solely for the problems. Northerners have held Nig hostage for more than 40 years. They refused to advance themselves and continue to prevent others from advancing. What sort of human beings are they?

Nig., Crude Oil, The North Political Power and Boko Haram 1

Nig. Got here because we believe in self-delusion. Ask yourself, how did Sha’ria start? How did BH emerge? Who are they and what is their agenda and what do they want? It is interesting to see how Northern leaders are quick to blame GEJ for not coming to clear the mess they created out of their greed for political power. Nonentities like @Tundemash and @Wahala who, as apologists for the Northern Oligarchy and their desperation for power have now run out of ideas on how to tame the monster their masters created. They accuse GEJ for sponsoring the attacks and blaming it on BH; at the same time they blame GEJ for not combating BH; they accuse GEJ for neglecting the North; they accuse GEJ for marginalizing the North; they blame GEJ for the illiteracy, poverty, disease and ignorance in the North.

please be mindful

Muhammad(pbuh), d messenger of Allah have never for once lead by violence, n d first word send to him by Allah thru angel gabriel was to read. So pls dont talk out of ignorance,

BH are killers, Ijaws are killing Itsekiris. BH =Ijaws

Ijaws storm Itsekiri villages of Warri North killed 12 people and burnt houses. Boko Haram and Ijaws, what is the difference?

LET'S RELAX FROM SADDENING NEWS

My sympathies to the lost souls! Please visit www.etumekama.blogspot.com for interesting articles that will make you smile and forget about these terrible dramas happening in our Fatherland! www.etumekama.blogspot.com

Schools Attack

I agree with the argument that we need foreign assistance to combat this menace. The government is in a difficult situation where many of the very soldiers and police who are supposed to fight BH are aiding them. Not only are the security agents involved, politicians in CPC and ACN support and encourage them, if not materially, by their utterances. It is not enough to make cut off point for federal schools admission 2 marks for Yobe state as against 138 marks for IMO state. The children should be alive to get the admission.

boko haram killed 30 students

all those that are saying bad things about religions(christianity or islam) have the same thought with boko haram because they are threatening peoples peace.

Comment

They are wicked the wrath of God will visit them

I'm still waiting for Ayo

I'm still waiting for Ayo Oritsejafor to comdemn the massacre. Maybe he's waiting to hear if there were any christian victims, BIGOT!

Boko Haram works for Devil

BH is evil and they work for the Devil by supplying him blood. Why attack and kill little children that cannot decide for themselves. That is pure wickedness, Nigeria can never become a moslem country and you BH is aware of this fact, so why using an unjustifiable excuse to perform rituals for devil u evil perpetrators! U r against western education yet u use western weapon to commit evil. God purnish u all!
