Boko Haram Threatens to Kill School Girls Bella Naija

Boko Haram killed at least 24 people yesterday during an attack on Kamuyya village, Borno State. 

The incident occurred in the afternoon at a weekly market, when traders were conducting their businesses. They opened fire into the crowd before setting shops and vehicles on fire. 

Residents said the insurgents had visited the town about two months ago and demanded that  the village head should command his subjects to contribute N250,000 for them to “execute God’s work,” Vanguard reports.

However, the villagers had only been able raise N70,000, which angered the terrorists. They reportedly threatened to return to attack the village if the balance was not given to them within a stipulated period of time.

“Actually, when they issued such threat, we all took it lightly and nobody bothered to make any extra effort to raise the amount they requested for.Maybe that was what ignited this bloody attack because we were unable to meet their demand,” said a resident.

    This is ridiculous!!! in as much has i share in their pain, there are also to be blame for the attack. I can’t believe what i just read………………………..
    How can they have such vital information and keep it to themselves. Imagine donation a whole N70,000 to this same insurgence sec that has vowed to destroy the peace and progress of this our Great nation Nigeria. This same group that kidnapped their own girls.. this is preposterous!!! they are indirectly funding this group, providing them with money and food items. imagine this insurgence demanding such amount from all the troubled villagers in the northern states… that is good money to them in a way.

    From all indications, the villagers know who these terrorist are! now i believe that they have been working with this BH because nobody has come out with any tangibly formation as to the whereabouts of the BH to the federal government. not a slight information has been provided even after the N50 million naira reward yet they have been contributing to this same BH.
    Why was this case not reported to the government? why didn’t they bring it to the attention to the authorities?

    Are these terrorist not a normal humans?, are they not from communities? don’t they have families? why can’t they be called to order by the traditional rulers. why are they all keeping silent on the sensitive issue.

    Everybody wants to blame the federal government. yes, the government has failed us in every sector but the fight of terrorism shouldn’t not be left to Government alone.

    We all should come to gather and be truthful to ourselves, it starts from every individual of this nation. report whatever you know that will help the government to win this war against terror. people should start speaking out!!!!
