No fewer than 15 people were injured in an explosion that occurred at a hotel located on the outskirts of Gombe township in northeastern Nigeria .

The manager of the hotel, Mr Ojiego Nelson,told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe on Thursday that three persons came to the hotel at about 10.13 PM on Wednesday to explode a device.

 Nelson said that he was at the gate of the hotel when the men, who were carrying guns, started “manhandling” the security man and when he asked what was happening, they started shooting sporadically.

``Our customers and everybody started running helter-skelter and the one with two gas cylinders in his hands threw them into our reception area." ``He threw one into the reception and threw the other one under the cars parked by our guests in the hotel. The one thrown into the reception exploded and damaged the building, so we just managed to escape through the back fence,'' he said.

The manager said that as soon as the incident happened, all the customers vacated their rooms in the hotel and left. He said the incident was immediately reported to the Divisional Police Officer in Tumfure, Mr Hassan Bappa, who came to the scene with his men. Bappa later claimed he deployed his men to the scene of the incident when the matter was reported to him, but that it was unfortunate that the gun men had escaped before police arrived. Bappa said that there was no fatalities and nothing was stolen from the hotel. ``We are waiting for bomb experts to come and remove the relics at the scene of the incident,” he said.

He said there was no arrest made so far but investigations were continuing.

THE SOLUTION IS MASSIVE PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

Years of negelect of the young almajiris gave room to foreign teachers (not necessarily islamic teachers) with new doctrine that gave the older almajiris hope for salvation from the economic oppression around them. The result is BOKO HARAM. The solution is LOVE, MASSIVE EDUCATIONAL ENLIGHTENMENT BY NORTHERN LEADERS through every available means especially THE RADIO, Naional Radio, BBC, China Radio etc

When Nigeria splits, where will you be-

Those calling for nigeria to break should realise that it may have to break into over 30 countries. Will the lazy indolent ogogoro drinking Ijaw man be willing to put up with fearful, pen and brain robbery of many Yoruba or will any of these two be happy to be together with the largely fraudulent fake drugs and goods peddlers, arm robbery dominated money at all cost Ibo tribe. Who will be with the largely illiterate, morons blood thirsty hausa-fulani tribe. What of itshekiris, urhobo, ijaw tribes with past bloody games, are they happy be together. This is the way we see one another. The problem is us-all tribalistic and ethinocentric, religious bigots and largely ungodly nation.

Democracy vs Democrazy

Point of correction for Africans Democracy was was never never in place untill majority of the pupolation were educated in Europe and American where they are now spreading their new religion Democracy. We Africans have been duped of legitimate system of Goverment which I think is best ever system of Government where every individual can be accounted for by their local Heads. To be frank our democracy is half baked because majority of these voters can not read or write so tell me how will they know what they are voting for at best they follow follow. You can see our democracy has only produce failures has President and they are getting more stupider by the day. If this what we getting for the 72% of our budget please bring the Army back asp.
We need someone not like Baba Iyabo that will sell cheap to the world with his legendry Hali deal

I READ SOME OF THE UTTERANCES

I READ SOME OF THE UTTERANCES ON THIS PAGE AND I SHUDDER THE KIND OF WORLD OUR FOREFATHERS LEFT FOR US WHICH WE MAY CERTAINLY BEQUEATH TO FUTURE GENERATIONS.
ALMIGHTY GOD WHO KNOWS THE HEART OF EACH AND EVERYONE WILL PUT TO SHAME ANYBODY THAT BY HIS PLAN OR ACT WANTS THIS COUNTRY TO DISINTEGRATE. THE COMING OF NIGERIA IS NOT BY OUR MANIPULATIONS BUT BY YOUR DIVINE INTERVENTION AND THEREFORE ANY EVIL DOER WILL NEVER HAVE PEACE BUT DEATH SHALL BE PROCLAIMED IN HIS FAMILY FROM GENERATIONS TO GENERATIONS.
THEIR DAY OF RECKONING SHALL COME VERY SOON AND RIDICULE SHALL BE THEIR PORTION, IN JESUS NAME I PRAY AMEN

IBRAHIM SAAD & Northern Fraudulent Census Count

Ibrahim, do not join other Arewa elites in this Nigerian population dishonesty. First of all God alone what the population of 9ja is. The Northern population is far lesser than they fraudulently claim. They sex-up their figures in order to get more political power & oil money, and you know it. For instance Sudan has the largest population in Africa. Their terrain & climate is akin to N/9ja. They are vastly Islamic as is N/9ja. They marry up to 4 wives as their Arewa brothers yet smaller DRC has more people than the 2 Sudans combined. Niger Republic & Chad are each 6 times larger than N/9ja. Chad has 11.5m people, Niger Republic 16m. Is N/9ja the only desert place in the world where the population is higher than the rain forest? Even if all their cows & goats are included the population of Rivers & Bayelsa surpass that of Arewa. Why do the Northerners resist accurate census count or ID program? They always give the fraudulent excuse that accurate count will split 9ja. Ludicrous.

Stupidity versus Alcoholism

deri,
Which is worse drunkenness or ijaw stupidity in you? While we do not blame the ijaw stupidity in you because it is genetic we hold you responsible for too much drinking. Binge drinking has made you lose memory of events and people. You always accuse Ihejirika of bombing Ayakoroama. This is dishonesty. You know that Jona sent his master and yours Gen Sagir Musa to do the bombing. Are you afraid to call him by name because he is your Hausa slave master? You never talk about the atrocities of your Hausa maters, but you are fond of insulting Igbo and Fulani. Stupidity has blinded you to the fact that the Fulanis are the masters of the Hausas. In other words, the master of your master is your master too.

Niger delta queen deri, drink and forget, treachery does not pay.

most of the trouble makers in the north are not nigerians

1991 April In Katsina, several lives are lost. Sh?ite sect in Katsina led by Malam Yahaya Yakubu stirs up trouble. At the end of April, in Tafawa Balewa (Bauchi State) over 200 lives are lost, and property and 20 churches are destroyed.* 1991 October 14- 15 . In Kano, the attempt of the Izala sect to stop Rev. Bonnke from preaching becomes violent Thousands of lives are lost and property destroyed. *1992 February 6th and then May 15-16 Zango Kataf, Zaria, Kaduna State Communal clash becomes a religious clash, with lives and property destroyed Funtua (Katsina State). Kalakato religious sect assaults a village head. 50 lives are lost and property destroyed .*2001 October 12-14 In Kano, there are anti-American riots, because of USA intervention in Afghanistan. At least 350 are killed.Afam Chukwunwike. I am now a catholic. What about you Yom Yom-a Moslem or a catholic

All of u don't understand why

All of u don't understand why muslims enjoy committing genocide and crowning it with suicide vests. The reason: THE MORE YOU KILL, THE MORE THE NUMBER OF VIRGINS TO FUCK IN THEIR HEAVEN. That is why they rush to take possession of their virgins in suicide bombing vests. If na you nko? Dark souls.

Greater then even GEJ that are causing this
To divide the country and they are succeeding
. If u can remember there was a report from USA
That this bombing will occur, how did they know?
And why didn't the Gov do anything? And they say
Nija is gonna split and we are getting their
. What ever happens pls Muhammed(SAW) didn't do it
Even if its true blame us the muslim and not him
For we do not follow his really teaching, we do as we like
. And God almighty is never with evil one and u know it.

What is the name of the hotel?

The problem with Nigeria.

One very big problem with Nigeria is reflected even from all these posts I have been reading and from many I have read before. So much anger, prejudice and intolerance reside in the minds of the youth, who are suppopsed to be the productive members of society. Instead of exchanging hate notes and abusing your Creator, why don't you
concentrate on decent interfaith dialogue and know more about each other's faith. Islam and Christianity have so much in common. Find your common grounds and build on that.

I have been thrugh some check

I have been thrugh some check points and police
are still collecting N50 and letting car pass
With out checking and there was a report that
Soilders got a truck full of explosive moved
By two police men!!

IN CONFUSION SEEDS OF DISCORDS ARE SOWN.

 There are certain flaws not worth arguing over(in terms of which part of the country has it in abundance) and as soon as we graciously accept and deal with them the better we will be. Some crimes we know are more common in our south e.g 419, kidnapping, fake drugs etc and it would be madness for us to deny this fact.

 Unwanton killings in name of religion,unfortunately, is worse in our north and the earlier we accept this and try our very best to eradicate this dastardly act, the better the North will be.

There is no competition to find the most violent part of our country as at this moment it is the North solely cause of these bombings and the religious and political causes need to be eradicated for the North to reclaim its rightful position of being a peaceful and easy and going place devoid of violence of any kind.

Why SR?

Having read the news from another newspaper , I am still to understand why you SR precisely to publish the news . Kindly elaborate pls

Biafrans leave the north for Gowon,Danjuma and sultan of Sokoto

Osisi ana egwu nwoke n'anya ugbolo abua(once bitten twice shy).In as much as i hold the incompetency of our security outfit as well as weakness of President Joenathan responsible for the unprecedented destruction of life and properties,i will not fail to reprimand my fellow Biafrans who despite their past and present experiences still stay put in nothern Nigeria.Are you realy waiting until you look for your head and discover that it is no more before you know it is time to leave.Igbos are inteligent and proud people.It therefore beats my imagination that some of us still living in the north have not been able to read the hand writting on the wall.I am sure not even Joenathan would allow a member of his family to live there.Please fellow Biafrans,leave the north for the likes of Gowon,Danjuma and Sultan of Sokoto to sort themselves out.Gen.Ojukwu who was your mouth piece is no more and it is high time you made use of your number six.once bitten twice shy. a word is enough for the wise.

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 N.H. Empere, Captain P.A.Dakolo, Capt AA Nonju, Lt. AE 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

Breakup is IMMINENT

The waves and strings of explosion have come 2 stay in naija. Even all security chiefs have conceeded to being overwhelmed by the penchant killings of innocent lives. Even the president has lost hope of resolving this deadly acts as perpertrated by terrorist groups. The FG can no longer carry out its primary duty of securing & protecting d lives of its citizens.' Instead of us to live together & perish it is better for us to live slightly apart and survive'. These was the agreement that was entered in2 by Ojukwu & Gowon @ the aburi convention b4 the outbreak of d civil war. Nigeria can not remain one indivisible nation any longer. We need to walk our seperate ways henceforth. Even the western bloc ve postulated that naija will disintegrate by 2015. These are signs of breakup. Its is either the breakup is peaceful or violent. Which ever divide u choose, only time shall time. 2012 is a MAKE or BREAK year 4 Nigeria. Long live the sovereign republic of Biafra. Long live Nigeria.

THE GREATEST N THE MUST POWERFUL (ALLAH)

U expressed ur sadness by abusing ALLAH n his prophet
Every soul bliv dat there is 1 supernatural in d haven who have power above all (is d allah )d name defers in any religion or language is not d name we are worshiping is him , any 1 dat abuse who created him he is pig.

Your speach had already killed

Why are u talking lyk dis, i think d problem majority are having is dat they dont knw the next thing. Is there life after death? What life? Eternal peace or condemination? All u care for is virgin after death, hun.. More greece to ur helbow.. I will not against any religion, but, what i know is that u dont have to hamputate or kill inocent citizens before u are rewarded, instead, why dont u canvass as in envagelise to them. It is sure if one finds peace in it he will come for it. Our God has not thaught us to slaughter for him. Dont be decieved... All those who hide under the name of God, killing people will face their wroth when we get to heaven be ye christian or muslim.. Remember my BIBLE has not told me to suport GOD through GENOCIDE.

Edward,I don't think you

Edward,I don't think you gonna end up well why can't you respect Allah(SWT)and the Prophet( SAW).Islam is peace and surely you will end in the hell.Fool

Security Chiefs

Yeye dey smell.They have gotten so much money from the dull president to fight Boko Haram and now it has backfired.I hope they will stay in Nija to enjoy their money when the music start (Bang! bang!! Bang!!!)
