Boko Haram killed 10 in latest attack

boko haramAP – At least 10 people were killed in weekend violence in Nigeria’s restive northeast, said an official on Sunday who attributed some of the strikes to a radical Muslim sect known for similar attacks.

Maj. Gen. Jack Nwachukwu Nwaogbo said a Sunday explosion near police barracks in the city of Maiduguri killed at least five people and wounded 10 Sunday evening. He also said three gunmen from the Boko Haram sect shot and killed four people in Maiduguri late on Saturday. Nwaogbo said a fifth person was shot dead Sunday.

Boko Haram claimed responsibility, in an unverified statement, for a June 16 bombing at the national police headquarters that left at least two dead.

Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is sacrilege” in the local Hausa language, is responsible for a rash of killings which have targeted police officers, soldiers, politicians and clerics in Nigeria’s north over the last year — including attacks on local beer parlors. They have also attacked churches and engineered a massive prison break.

The group wants strict Shariah law implemented across the region.

    Boko Haram are not Muslims. They are the useless people in the society especially from other neighboring countries where they are dying of hunger and there are politicians in Nigeria who never see anything good in Nigeria and are ready to employ them for destruction. These politicians want the country to collapse and even be scrapped from the map of the world because they don’t have any hope.
