Separate Explosions Hit Army Base, Airforce Barrack And Public Bus In Kaduna

By SaharaReporters, New York

The city of Kaduna was hit by three major explosions today. Security sources told SaharaReporters that two of the attacks were apparent suicide bombs carried out by suspected Islamist militants of the Boko Haram sect.

A first bomb was detonated under a flyover in Kawo killing 3 people who were riding in a bus. A second and third a explosion went off at the 1st Mechanized Division of the Nigerian army and shortly afterwards a third explosion rocked the Nigerian Airforce base near.

The flyover connects both military bases. The Nigerian military has sealed off the scenes of the explosions making it difficult to verify the number of victim relating to the explosions.

Men of the National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) and the Road Safety Corps were prevented from going near the scene of the bomb explosions as soldiers cordoned off the scene chasing away journalists and civilians.

The Nigerian army has not issued a formal statement about the incident, a move interpreted by reporters on the ground as a clever attempt to control information emerging from the attack and possibly cover up the number of casualties.

IBRAHIM SAAD

Ibrahim, I like the way you put your facts upside down or in reverse gear. On Sept. 11, 2001, the Pentagon,America's symbol of military power was attacked by a group of evil possessed fanatics. On the same day the twin tower which stood for American economic prowess was viciously brought down. What the American people did was to rally round Pres. Bush. His job approval rating hit close to 90 and stayed high to give him a second term in 2003. There was no call for his resignation not even from the noisy crowd one of whom is the current occupant of the White House.Yes, Ibrahim we will continue to talk so that the ears of the deaf will open and cause them to understand what reason means.Although some people have sold their conscience to the devil and are impervious to human feeling, remember that there are two days of reckoning:the immediate one on this earth with law enforcement and the later one when each stands before the Creator and accounts for his deeds.

TALK KENNETH, WHILE B/H ACTS

I LOST PERSONAL FRIENDS IN THE KANO ATTACK AND IF THERE IS ONE THING I WANT IS FOR THE ATTACK TO STOP WETHER IT IS BY LIQUIDATING THE B/H OR NEGOTIATING WITH THEM. IN PLACES WHERE LEADERSHIP IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY THIS ATTACK ON THE HEART OF NIGERIAS MILITARY WILL LEAD TO POLITICAL UPHEAVAL AND THE FORCED RESIGNATION OF THE PRESIDENT AND ALL THOSE IN CHARGE OF SECURITY.
BUT THIS IS NIGERIA WHERE ANYTHING GOES. MARK MY WORD THIS ISSUE (BOKO HARAM) WILL ENGULF THE WHOLE NATION IF NOT TACKLED SOON. FOR AS YOU PEOPLE DO WHAT YOU DO BEST, THAT IS TALK, THE B/H DOES WHAT IT DOES BEST THAT IS ACT. EACH TIME THEY ACT PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE LOSE THEIR LIVES. SOON PEOPLE WILL BEGIN TO ASK WHY DO THEY HAVE A GOVT WHEN IT CANNOT PROTECT THEM. THAT WILL BE THE TURNING POINT.
THE AMERICANS SAY OSAMA HID BEHIND WOMEN, THEY CHANGED THE STORY LATER. IT WONT TAKE LONG BEFORE WE WILL KNOW WHO HIDES UNDER THE BED.

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

u are d only sane nigerian

your comments are very mature. Most people make comments becausethey have access. We are dealing with very seriousissues and some of us reduce it to religious,ethnic or regional matter. Our fellow nigetians are being killed irresspective of their background should be considered in our comments. Perpetrators of these acts ofterror are injuring our Collective psyce. They evil and must be seen as such. You don't kill innocent people and claim to be fighting a cause that you need they authority to neegotiate with you. God please give fortitude to as many that have lost their loved once in this madness to bear the iirreperable loss. Amen.p

IBRAHIM SAAD

You are quite writ about the mistaken identity. While Asari(no friend of mine) voluntarily surrendered, Qaqa on the other hand, was caught cowering under the bed quacking like a chicken. It is true that murderers are cowards. Between the two of us, who is the 419er? I am in Nigeria while you are in a distant foreign land from where you stay and direct the destruction of the country.You are insulated from the very suffering now being unleashed by your foot soldiers. Ibrahim, it is 419 to urge others to go out and be killed when you have no intention to pay such a price.Come and lead by example and stop deceiving innocent people to waste their lives on a course of futility.

IBRAHIM SAAD

Ibrahim,thanks for the correction on the season in the country down under. With a temperature of 38 degrees, the effect of the heat wave from the great Australian desert is telling on you.Lunatics have a place called an asylum where they are confined until their madness is cured. Where you come from, anybody who, because of claiming to be mad, walks about naked meets instant rajm justice. The madness of BH and their sponsors will be put to rest one day. Nothing lasts forever.If anybody is lying it is the group of evil you represent. While your spokesman was on television deceiving the world that they were ready to talk to the government, their operatives were in fact, exploding bombs all over Kaduna. This was an excellent example of taqiyya. How can any serious minded administration dialogue with such an unreliable group? I do not wish you any ill but if you desire destruction for yourself, then there is nothing that can be done about it.Enjoy your descent into hell.

boko barawo

A ram will always reasion from the anus.you kill people and you expect there relatives to keep quit.asaleme

boko thievs

Every move by boko haram is master minded.bombing army base does not change the fact that northern elite are responsible for all the bombing to make mr president govt.uncomfortale.but one thig is certain. egypsians couldn't hold the isrealits when it was time.

Be resilient

All we need to overcome this phase of our national history is the collective resolve as NIGERIANS to fight this scourge

DERI

YOU ARE MISTAKING ABU QAQA WITH ASARI. YOU CAN TAKE NWANKO'S DAUGHTER OUT FOR A DRINK AND BUY SOME FOR NWANKO HIMSELF AND HE WILL BE HAPPY AND TREAT YOU LIKE A GOOD SON IN LAW. BUT TRY BUYING BRANDY FOR ALHAJI SANI WHOS DAUGHTER YOU WANT TO COURT AND THE STORY WILL BE DIFFERENT.
ASK LAWYERS FOR CLARIFICATION. JUST BECAUSE DERI WAS CHEATED BY 419ER KENNETH AND DERI DECIDES TO LET IT GO BECAUSE THEY ARE FRIENDS IN BLIND-JONATHANIA, DOES NOT MEAN THAT SAAD CANNOT GO TO COURT WHEN KENNETH TRIES HIS TRICK ON HIM.
THESE ARE 2 CLEAR CASES IN WHICH ONE TERRORIST GROUP DECIDED TO LAY DOWN ARMS WHEN THEIR LEADER WAS TRICKED TO ARREST AND THE OTHER DECIDED TO MAKE A CLEAR STATEMENT BY HITTING THE HUB OF NIGERIA'S DEFENCE. SIMPLE.

@ rommel

may ALLAH punish you for your blasphemy.. Idiot

KENNETH

FIRST OF ALL IS SUMMER HERE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA THE TEMPERATURE AVERAGE IS ABOUT 38 DEGREES. SECONDLY I DONT KNOW WHO IS THE THIEF HERE, THE GOVT THAT KILLS WITHOUT DUE PROCESS, KILLS POLITICAL OPPONENTS, KILLS ORDINARY CITIZENS BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO GIVE N20 BRIBE, STEALS FROM NATIONAL COFFERS WITHOUT SHAME OR THE BOKO HARAM THAT BOMBS POLICE STATIONS AND ARMY BARRACKS AND KILL INNOCENT CIVILIANS. LIKE YOU SAID TIME WILL TELL.
YES THEY (BOKO HARAM) ARE ON A MARCH OF DESTRUCTION BUT THE ONLY DESTRUCTION I CAN SEE IS THAT OF THE LIVES OF INNOCENT POLICE, ARMY, CUSTOMS AND IMMIGRATION OFFICERS AND THAT OF CIVILIANS. THE B/H HAS ALREADY SUFFERED THEIR DESTRUCTION IN 2009, IT IS YOUR TURN NOW KENNETH.
IF YOU THINK YOU CAN STOP A LUNATIC THEN YOU ARE DEFINATELY MAD!

Re:bomb attacks in kaduna

Security alone cannot curb the excesses of the blood sucking demons on the prol. All Nigerians' hands must be on deck to ensure that this ugly security challenging trend must be brought to a halt. People should endeavor to volunteer information to security agencies for them to be in the position to handle these miscreants effectively. Boko haram members live amongst us. Expose them now and they will become history.

saad ibrahim , is 9ja not still searchi for those who killed IGE

@Saad Ibrahim, aware you are the real spokesperson of boko haram at the global level, one would want you to put religious sentiments aside and attempt to face facts for once! Can you in your right senses tell us what transpired between OBJ and Asare Dokubo? How Asare was arrested by Ribadu and Elrufai led government of OBJ? Was dokubo not asked to embrace peace by laying down his arms? With OBJ promising to pay for them? What happened when Asare was invited to appear at the police hqts at Moscow Road PHC. Was Asare not detained and flown to abuja soon after he presented himself to the police? What other action do you want gov to take? The problem security agents are having with the lying machine of BH, is that they have unpatriotic generals in the armed forces revealing strategic information to BH. While pretending to be in the service of 9ja. Did u and yr friends not laugh at GEJ here, when he said we should expect more of this type of bombs from BH?

@Saad Ibrahim wake up yr ideas

RE: HELLO RITA-IBRAHIM SAAD

Ibrahim, there is a saying that "nine days are for the thief but the tenth day is for the owner of the house". As you can see, nine days constitute a long period. Time will tell. Suicide bombing like euthanasia is self imposed and as a counter terrorist once said, there is nothing you can do to stop a lunatic who has decided to end his life especially with the believe that he will be amply rewarded in the hereafter. Boko Haram is basking in its 'accomplishments'. Hitler once terrorized the world but it ended one day when he took his own life. It appears that the Australian winter is having an effect on you. Abdu Qaqa, whose capture was first denied by his group, was not having a meeting with anybody. He was caught hiding under the bed. I do not know of any meeting which takes place at such an awkward venue. He has not made the claim that you are now making. You had better adviced them to abandon their march towards destruction.

Potential BH

I just wonder if any sane human-being would support this indiscrinate killing by BH sect. But alot of people do in the name of supporting their religion. To me, the comments of all these potential BH waiting for the opportunity to blow up themselves one day should not be published. If Nigeria divides, lets see who will depend on millet and debino to survive.

bring in the bakassi boys...

hahhahahhahah....exactly, send in the clowns!

they can plant some more drugs, steal, and threaten to rape kids\\

come to mass bokes...lol

who knows?

maybe your army is planting drugs, cams, and threatnenig to rape kids? just as the msp have been doing the last 2 weeks...

maybe boko will come to mass? wishful thinkin

All members of the sect that

All members of the sect that have been caught so far who are no longer relevant in information gathering should be slaughtered immediately . Atleast this will send a signal to their sponsors that while they kill we also know how to do it better.

That is why you pigs are

That is why you pigs are carrying out these attacks and pinning the blames on the muslims.

HELLO RITA

THOSE WHO ARE SMART KNOW THAT THERE IS A TIME TO FIGHT AND TIME TO SHEATH THE SWORD. THERE IS A CONFLICT IN WHICH YOU NEED THE POLICE, IN OTHERS YOU NEED THE ARMY, IN YET OTHERS YOU NEED YOUR MOUTH. THESE ARE CALLED OPTIONS, RITA. WHAT DO YOU CALL A PRESIDENT WHO CHOOSE TO USE THE MILITARY WHEN HE KNOWS THEY ARE NOT CAPABLE? AND IF HE DID NOT KNOW THEIR CAPABILITY WHAT KIND OF COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IS HE?
WHY WILL THE PRESIDENT IN A NATIONAL BROADCAST CALL THE BOKO HARAM TO COME TO THE TABLE ONLY TO HAVE THEM ARRESTED WHEN THEY SHOW UP? WHAT DO YOU CALL A LEADER WHO DOES NOT KEEP HIS WORD? HIS DECISION HAS COST NIGERIAN LIVES AND YOU ARE SAYING WE SHOULD NOT ACCUSE HIM?
BUSH WAS CRITICIZED BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN WARS. NOW THAT HE IS NOT THE LEADER A SMARTER LEADER HAS DECIDED TO TALK TO THE TALIBAN AND AL-QAIDA. IF THE COALITION OF THE WORLD'S BEST MILITARY, INTELLIGENCE, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC FORCES COULD NOT BEAT THE TERRORIST WHAT CHANCE DOES NIGERIA HAVE?

Courage and Determination.

More courage and determination by the security forces will ensure victory for Government. Keep it up Nigerian security forces. We saw the rise and fall of Maitatsene. We will also see the fall of BH.

Over to you, MasKhan

MasKhan, go ahead and quote the sura in full for us. You said it was quoted out of context. Give us the right quote for all to see.

WHERE IS SOYINKA AND HIS THEORIES?

SO THE NORTHERN ELITE SPONSORED BOKO HARAM THAT IS SET ON MAKING NIGERIA UNGOVERNABLE FOR A SOUTHERN PRESIDENT IS TAKING OUT ITS OWN MILITARY BASE THAT IT WILL REQUIRE TO FIGHT THE SOUTH? WHAT PURPOSE WILL THIS SERVE? WHERE DOES THIS FIT IN YOUR THEORY PROF SOYINKA?
IT IS DISHEARTENING THAT THOSE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE EDUCATED ARE RESORTING TO ETHNICITY AND REGIONALISM TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING A PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILD SHOULD UNDERSTAND.
THE MORE PROVACATION FROM THE GOVT THE MORE B/H WILL UP THE ANTE. AT THE NEXT PROVOCATION WE DONT KNOW THEY MAY DECIDE TO HIT ASO ROCK.
THE SOONER WE UNDERSTAND THIS VIOLENCE AND ITS CAUSE THE MORE LIVES WE WILL SAVE BECAUSE AT THE END OF IT ALL WHEN THE NAMES OF THE DEAD ARE CALLED THEY WILL BE NIGEIRANS FROM ALL REGIONS AND ALL RELIGIONS.

Let's discuss these suras!

Sura 5:51: “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them for friendship is of them.”

Of the Unbelievers: Sura 4:89 “seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Boko Haram Illuminanti Group

Call them Boko Haram or whatever devil's name you can call them, but not Islamists. These people are committed to worshipping Satan. Muslims call them Dajjal, Christians call them Anti-Christ. Carefully observe this, this is Satan's kind of handyword. They always hide under the name of some religion and create disruption in the society. Boko Haram not Islamist but Illuminanti group
