Militants Kill Seven In Raids On Northern Towns- BBC by rafhell(m): 9:09am On Dec 30, 2012
Suspected Islamist militants have killed at least seven people in attacks on two northern Nigerian towns, military spokesmen said.

Five people were killed in a raid on a village outside Maiduguri, a stronghold of Islamist militants Boko Haram.

In a second attack, gunmen killed two people, including a policeman, and burnt down government buildings in Maiha, on the border with Cameroon.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The Nigerian military said it had arrested three people and seized weapons following the attack outside Maiduguri.

A school teacher in the village told the Associated Press that gunmen had gathered people into a group before massacring them. The teacher said 15 people had died in the attack; many had had their throats slit.

Violence linked to the Boko Haram insurgency - a group seeking to impose Islamic law on the country - has claimed hundreds of live in 2012.

Six people died in an attack on a church on Christmas Day, while seven people were killed on Wednesday in Maiduguri, the city where Boko Haram launched its campaign in 2009.

Nigeria is divided between a mainly Muslim north and a Christian south.

I have a problem with this kind of headline.

Its just like saying 'Wife of a minister kidnapped in Southern Nigeria ? or 5 Molested in Africa ?

I mean what is Northern Nigeria ? Can't the location or at least the state be specified in the topic/headline to at least give the news the proper perspective.

This only feeds into a narrative that Northern Nigeria is filled with barbaric, murderous and senseless group of people, which is very untrue and unfortunate. There are actually many states in Northern Nigeria that are far more peaceful than southern states.

Why do you think that when Nigerians from other regions settle in the North, despite the purported violence and insecurity, they find it very difficult to come back ?


RIP to the dead. And we pray God grants peace in this country

I'm sure you were hoping fervently for this to happen so that you could rush here in unholy haste and insult Islam and its adherents, on the basis of the actions of a few whose identity you know next to nothing about. No doubt, doing that always gives you multiple orga.sms.

So, when are you bringing the next one?

My problem is whenever this western media report they should desist from refering to Nigeria as a muslim-north and christian-south,Nigeria is a single entity. Quoting the president ''the unity of Nigeria is non negotiable'' Also the killings av gone past a thousand, am quite suprised they are reporting just hundreds since 2010.

Bros, silence is the best answer to these Ignoramuses. Many of them are not even true christians. I believe no true christian will insult other religions.

Allah will fulfill His Light even if the Mushrikoon detest.

Sheikh Gumi had condemned boko haram from the onset, for which they dispatched two suicide bombers to kill him (the bombs exploded with the bombers before they could reach him). Many imams especially in maiduguri were not so lucky. Sheikh gumi is a person who speaks his mind on a number of issues- he is very blunt, maybe because of his background as a former army officer.
