Reprisals Kill 10 after Church Bombed in Nigeria's Jos-Reuters

By Buhari Bello

JOS, Nigeria (Reuters) - Christian youths killed at least 10 people in reprisal attacks after a suspected suicide bomber hit a Catholic church in the central Nigerian city of Jos on Sunday, killing three people, authorities said.

"The situation is bad," health commissioner for Jos Sati Dakwat told Reuters. "Several were killed in the reprisal attacks, more than 10."

A Reuters reporter at the scene of the church bombing was unable to gain access, as the police had cordoned off the area around Finber's Catholic Church in the Rayfield suburb of Jos.

TO: IBRAHIM SAAD

You may mock as much as you like. All I know is that my God is able to do all things and if He allows certain occurrences, it is because He has a divine plan. Those who fuel boko haram have the ability to voluntarily remove themselves from harms way by taking refuge in foreign countries leaving the less fortunate ones to bear the pains and scars of the savagery.

RE: CHRISTIANITY=FALSEHOOD BY XMAN

Ex-man,even if this particular miracle is not verified, Egypt is no stranger to Christian miracles.During the reign of Caliph al-Muizz(972-975) following a debate the caliph had instituted, the Coptic Pope Abraam, was challenged to prove his faith by causing a mountain to move failure of which the Pope and the Christians would face the Islamic sword. After 3 days of fasting and prayer, the people gathered at the appointed site and following instructions given by Simon the tanner, who lived in Cairo, the Pope made the sign of the cross and commanded the mountain to lift. THREE(3) TIMES THE MOUNTAIN LIFTED ITSELF. On seeing this, the Caliph said "O Patriarch! I have recognized the correctness of your faith". To commemorate this event the Copts have 3 additional days of fasting b4 the beginning of the Nativity Fast. When it was all over, Simon the tanner could not be found again. But in 1991 an excavation in the Church of St Mary unearthed his skeleton with the hair on his head in tact.

KENNETH, PRAY FOR SIMILAR MIRACLES IN NIJA

I THINK YOU BADLY NEED SUCH MIRACLES SO THAT ALL CHURCHES WILL BE INVISIBLE TO BOKO HARAM MEMBERS. PLEASE INCLUDE OUR MOSQUES AND HOMES IN YOUR PRAYERS. WE TOO ARE BOKO HARAM VICTIMS.

RE;JESUS CHRIST THE GOD OF MIRACLES

Anonymous, I am a firm believer in the awesome power of our Lord to perform miracles. Nothing is above Him. That distinguishes Him from some dead,deaf and blind deity which could not even protect its own messenger but exposed him to the most ignoble death beyond imagination. But please always verify every bit of information before posting it. I cannot establish the authenticity of this claim even though it is not beyond certain people to suppress the truth.

The Bible teaches that we should judge between what is good and evil. The Boko Haram jihad is definitely satanic

BUHARI BELLO'S REPORT ON 2ND JOS CHURCH BOMB BLAST

Buhari Bello wrote about what he did not see or hear. For the inhabitants of Jos there was, without any doubt, a bomb blast. This was a promised gift from the Islamic Boko Haram which the Special Task Force could not pick out at any of their countless checkpoints. It appears the STF is in Jos to always shoot down protesting, leave-carrying children.

Since Dec. 24, 2010, there have been six bomb explosions in Jos. Of these, no suspect has been arrested. This makes it Boko Haram-6, STF-0. As for shooting defenseless citizens the STF men have never missed an opportunity. It looks like there is an occupation force in Jos. When will they depart?

JESUS CHRIST, THE GOD OF MIRACLES.

A muslim man shot n killed his wife in egypt bcos he saw her reading d Holy Bible. He then buried d wife n their two daughters together since he felt d daughters were also corrupted. He buried d two daughters alive. 15 days later, someone died in d same community n coincidentally, d same spot where d man buried his wife n daughters was dug to bury d person that just died.
While digging, they saw a hand that was moving n carefully rescued d two girls. One was eight years old while d other was six months old. The eight years cud talk n she made these revelations on national TV. She said their father killed n buried d mum with d girls bcos he saw her reading d Bible. She stated further that since d day their dad buried them alive, a Man in a shining white robe with holes in His palms comes to feed them. The Man will wake up their mum to breastfeed her younger sister. The Man kept them alive thruout the 15 days they were buried.
To confirm, google "miracle in eygpt" on d internet.

@deri. I have bin following

@deri. I have bin following your comments for sometime now. You have never said anything reasonable at all. You are always blaming In your comments always. If you don't like Nigeria being together go and seek Cameroon citizenship. As long as Jos LG is concern and if politics is a game of numbers, Hausa Fulani will continue to control.
