Two Die As Gunmen Storm Prison In Borno

By ChannelsTV

Police authority said that suspected members of the extremist group, Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihadl, popularly called Boko Haram on Friday stormed a prison in Borno state, killing two guards and freeing the inmates.

The Borno state Police Public Relations Officer said that 23 suspects had since been arrested.

“The BH (Boko Haram) first attacked the Banki police station but they were repelled…They then went to Kumshe, a nearby town, and attacked the prison lockup killing two officials before setting all the inmates free,” he said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, although Boko Haram has been blamed for several prison breaks in the past.

The group has said it is fighting to free imprisoned members and to carve out an Islamic state in Nigeria – a country nearly evenly split between Muslims and Christians.

Months of gun and bomb attacks blamed on Boko Haram have killed hundreds since the movement started its uprising more than two years ago. The violence has intensified in the past two weeks.

Gunmen threw bombs and opened fire on a cattle market in Potiskum, on Wednesday, killing at least 60 people, a spokesman for the Yobe state governor said.

It was not clear if the killers were Islamists or a criminal gang.

LOVE CHILD

It is very clear that such monstrous acts can only come from creatures born out of odd family units. Of-course, the originator of this school of terrorism called Islam was only a love - child. What more may we expect from his followers?

BH, go after the real government

BH, you're cowards and fools!!! If you want us to take you serious, you should start attacking the Senators, legislooters and the executhieves. They are the real problem with Nigeria. And don't forget to include the stupid and corrupt members of the judiciary who continue to set the big thieves free while condemning innocent Nigerians like 16 years old Blessing to life in prison without any proper trial! Nigerians will clap for you if you bomb the national assembly for example because that's where all the looters gather daily! Go after them if you're truly fighting for allah! cowards!

Evenly split you say?

Haba sahara reporters? You are also engaged in telling half truths and barefaced lies? Who told you that " Nigeria – a country nearly evenly split between Muslims and Christians?" that is a huge lie. More like 70-30 would have been more objective. Of course muslims being the majority.

criminals

and it's clear u write fake stories and are pedophiles, elias

hahahahahaha

Its not mental problem in my opinion. you are are perfectly fine.Imagine the caliber of criminals in power at all levels of governance in Nigeria. the sad thing is things will only get worse. Call me a pessimist but don't deny me the title of realist ha ha!

SETTING PRISONERS FREE

PLEASE I NEED MENTAL HELP. I FIND MY SELF APPLAUDING THE RELEASE OF CRIMINALS FROM PRISON. AND WHY?

THEY NO LONGER STEAL MILLIONS BUT BILLIONS. AND THEY CAN AFFORD LAWYERS WITH SAN. BOKO HARAM, PLEASE GO AND SET FREE MORE SMALL TIME THEIVES.
