Boko Haram Kills 300 in Fresh Borno Attacks

Boko Haram Massacre Bella Naija

Boko Haram’s killing spree appears to be never ending.

At least 300 people were confirmed dead on Monday, after Boko Haram gunmen in armoured vehicles raided Gamborou Ngala town in Borno state, Vanguard reports.

The security personnel who were supposed to be guarding the area, were allegedly absent during the day of the attack because they had received intelligence that some Boko Haram members had been sighted around the Lake Chad axis with some of the abducted Borno girls. It was while security officers were away that the attack occurred.

The terrorists reportedly spent about 12 hours killing people, destroying property, and wreaking enormous havoc.

They were armed with lethal weapons including assault rifles, rocket propelled launchers (RPGs), armored personnel carriers (APCs), Improvised Explosive Devices, (IEDs), and petrol bombs.

“The attackers stormed the communities in the night when residents were still sleeping, setting ablaze houses, shops and residents who tried to escaped from the fire, were shot ,” said Senator Ahmed Zannah, who is from the area that was attacked.

      And now the plot thickens……… GEJ has now submitted the Sovereignty of the People n land of Nigeria to Americans by accepting their offer to help. The CIA, who happens to b the real Jihadists will surely have info about d girls whereabouts within a week of coming in, since they r d ones funding d bloody BOKO HARAM sect. How do i know? it is clearly in Yankees best interest to destabilize Nigeria, so as to weaken Nigeria’s Influence in West Africa and beyond. They were clearly frustrated by the success d Nigerian Military achieved in parts of W.Africa. Particularly in Liberia. during the War times there with little or no Military Help from the almighty American Military. The Mission i’m on about here is —ECOMOG. Of course, some peeps reading will this will say, wat is this one yarning? well wat i’m yarning makes sense if u Consider that Liberia is the only Solid African Colony the Americans have in Africa. President Monroe of USA named Liberia’s Capital ”Monrovia” after himself. So since pulling off such a wonderful feat, by Nigerian Led ECOMOG SOLDIERS, Yankee’s CIA has been on d Alert n have made it Priority to weaken Naija’s Clout in the Region. One of their best tried and tested ways has always been WAR. As, it has clearly worked in other regions in Africa and in d World @ large. eg Sudan, Libya, Iraq etc If u know ur Onions, u will have also have realised that the Main stay of these Economies is OIL. which is why, they r gradually making their way into Nigeria. of course, they coming in from d North but the real destination is Southbound to the Juicy land of d ”BIAFRANS” where the curse of the nation dwells(CRUDE OIL)

      Sorry bout d Epistle, or destructive prophecy as some might regard it to be, but it goes on……. Now when Yankee set up shop in the Borno Area, d CIA will now set up their own Boko Camps and upgrade and sophisticate the sects Modus operandi!! This is now when the CIA will ransack all the Souls of disillusioned n deprived youths from War-Torn Neighbouring countries around Nigeria and enlist them into BOKO HARAM and claim they r Nigerians n use them as Mercenaries to fight in Nigeria.(these same tactics were used in LIBYA and it worked in Misrata even Tripoli!!

      In conclusion, i agree it is all political. the Mallams r desperate n wanna get back Power, by frustrating GEJ’s Joke Administration. But if this continues without any checks n balances, I can see NIGERIA, though i wish just the North turning into a little PAKISTAN. (by PAKISTAN, i mean Bomb-dropping on d daily or weekly[God forbid])And if that’s truly d case, i can also see America, achieving its NEW WORLD ORDER dreams in West Africa thro’ Nigeria by pretending to HELP under the Guise of NATO, but actually coming to fuck our daughters n sons in d ass 4 REAL .

      Nigerians get ur Act together. Ur Nation should literally be the BEST NEGRO NATION in the WORLD. Your Resources, Land, Population, Hustle-spirit, Drive n all makes worthy of such CLAIM. However, a lack of solid education over centuries n decades has deprived us of being UNITED and being Capable of thinking n handling our SHIT in a big boi way. We gotta go call Uncle Sam to come #bRINGoURgIRLSbACK

      This is the most foolish response I have ever read since I started following the Boko Haram induced grievances in Nigeria.
      You know how some comments are so stupid, you just have to tell the writer that the are. I wish I could have given you more feedback but I don’t have the time right now. But if you care, take a look back at your assumptions, your premises, and even your examples. You will surely see the fallacies you have made. Then maybe re-write this crap you have posted here.
      No one should give me that “oh its his opinion” bullshit because you posted it on an open source and thus, you are obligated to support your opinions with reasonable evidence

      I hope to see a more comprehensible repost.

      You are the silly one! What did she say wrong that you’d attack her? Is Jonathan not the president, or someone forced him there? He doesn’t know what to do now, but if it’s to loot the nation blind, he’d know what to do!

      May 7, 2014 at 1:38 pm

      Oby…the “silly” in your comment…primary school playground way of espressing yourself, isn’t it?

      Now what would I have done if I were Pres? I would have abided by my oath of office. Let me point out relevant extracts:

      1. “I will not allow my personal interest to influence my official conduct or my official decisions”
      – so instead of carrying on lobbying and campaigning for 2015, I would have firmly addressed the security situation on all national and international news media with a plan of action (even if non-specific so as not to alert the BH dudes on what’s coming, but at least enough to assuage the anxiety of the masses)…did you hear his last press briefing?

      2. “I will do right to all manner of people, according to law, without fear or favour, affection or ill-will”
      – and for the record, BH shouldn’t be considered among the “people” because they are clearly animals – so if I were President I would ensure the N845billion marked for security in the 2014 budget is actually used to ensure security of the people…as against favouring lining the pockets of the same corrupt government officials and cabals, year after year.

      3. “I will devote myself to the service and well-being of the people of Nigeria”
      – Do I even need to say anything here?

      Oby, the man is the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, that title speaks for itself. War has been declared, he needs to realise that, and act accordingly.

      Epistle over.

    The securities that were assigned to the territory to protect the lives and properties received an emergency call: wasn’t that suspicious enough to know that those people that made the call knew certain things by diverting the attention of those security personnel?
    Those securities must also face an inquisition bcos no one to trust again in this kind of a situation.

    Nigerian Security Agencies always given an excuses just like the way Bola Ige (Anthony General of the Fed.) was killed despite the fact that policemen was assigned to him and they went to eat outside at the same time.

    What do i know?

    Let me join the conspiracy theorist people. It is clear this 2hole thing is political. Their aim is to frustrate the preaodent. It’s all political if nt why are they only killing yheir people? If they were serious they would have moved down south but they havent because if they do it would lead to civil war and Nigeria dividing. These people dont want that, they don’t want Nigeria to divide they just want back the power to rule hence they keep frustrating Jonathans government from their own town/states. Jonathan on the other hand is very weak and inactive. Smh something needs to be done before they move down south. Have yhe victims in my prayers. Hope im nt going mad just frustrated by the news.

      You are so right on whatever theory you believe. Just this morning on AIT, i heard the commissioner of police in Borno state has been asking people that their children are missing to come and make an official report and pictures to help in solving the problem. None has shown up. The ones that claimed they escaped from them, couldn’t even speak english when they were being interviewed. C’mon , they are suppose to be SS3 students for WAEC exam; abi there is a different format for WAEC exams now? Something is just fishy. What is even stopping the DSS from questioning the Senator that said somebody called and informed that the girls were being married off.

    • oyeprof

      May 7, 2014 at 12:49 pm

      They are mostly active in the Borno and Northern areas because the Sambisa forest is somewhere in Maiduguri and other areas where they suppoosedly camp are also close to the North so they can access the people in the North easily. But i do see some sense in your reasoning. If they truly want a divide, they simply need to move to the south/east even western parts of Nigeria then they will see a true uprising. Nonetheless, that they are simply trying to frustrate Jonathan’s rule is no reason for him to fold his arms. This whole thing has simply exposed his incompetence and poor intellect and Boko Haram or no Boko Haram, a clueless, unintelligent man should not rule the giant of Africa.

      Actually if you were able to get a full translation of the last video they said out shekau said that they are coming to cross rivers and to Jonathan’s village. He said a lot of chilling things, called a lot of nations out (pretty much everyone in the G10). They have clearly shown that they are insane and have killed and will kill at random so why are we still calling their bluff?!

      Also, when I was in secondary school up north 20 years ago, I met kids who wrote their common entrance in Hausa and ended up in JS 1 at my school not knowing a word of English, you can only imagine how things may have deteriorated since then and it won’t be a stretch of the imagination to see physics students who are not very fluent in English

    As I said before, BH are just fish slapping all right & left. They are delighting in the media coverage they are getting. Yes it has worked in pressuring our govt into action. On the flip-side, BH seem to be reveling in the notoriety & riding the same media cloud as the celebs that’s why they quickly released a video claiming the acts so they can cash in on the exposure knowing very well it would be aired internationally. It appears to have even emboldened them.

    How on earth are they managing to get away with repeated attacks in an area that by now should be under heavy military presence? There was a 12hr attack & no military response? Jona is still too scared of instructing military?

    Blood of Jesus! our military has been infiltrated , there’s a lot we don’t know yet.
    all of a sudden, the security personnel who were assign to guard that area disappeared?? and to aggravate the report they operated for 12 GOOD HOURS!

    Guys, we should not be fooled. Johnathan is dinning with his enemies! they want to paralyze all effort made by the government.

    I can’t wait for the US troop to come in. so much need to be

      What do you mean that Nigerians are always feeling pompous? on top of Boko Haram or what? I have lived with so many Africans from different African countries and i can testify to it that some of you guys always having an enmity with us except Cameroonians, I am not using the bad eggs in some countries to judge the others but an average Cameroonians are very welcoming people. So many of you guys always perceive Nigerians being patriotic to their country to lack of respect out of enviousness.

      Tell me any country in Africa that can withstand the mayhem we are facing right now without turning it to conflict. It is just unfortunate that Nigeria that always helped the so many African countries to restore peace to their nation could not be able to fathom out her own problem.

      It is just a trying period for us and we shall surely get over it Insha Allah.

We’ve sent troops to Mali, to Sierra Leone and Liberia, yet you cannot support us even with your voice. People don’t remember the things Nigeria does for other countries when they complain that we are numerous and loud and apparently pompous. Get out abeg.

    Oh Lord! If these evil beasts are allowed to carry on there will be no one left to kill in Borno state (may God forbid). How were they allowed to kill for 12 whole hours without some kind of intervention??? Am saddened by this, so difficult to believe this is happening in Nigeria :(.

    Very fishy. I have not seen this story on Reuters, AlJazeera, BBC or CNN even though it broke more than 12 hours ago in Nigeria. It originated from one online source and has been duplicated by other Nigerian news outlets who have clearly not done any additional investigative journalism. Just copy and paste.

    More than 300 people in a night market? No security forces left behind to guard them? This is a fishy story and that is why most international news agencies are staying away from it until it can be confirmed by Nigerian police or security forces.

    If it is a true story then the security forces left the village for cowardly and selfish reasons.

    So sorry but 12 hrs… I don’t buy this story so they ” received intelligence that some Boko Haram members had been sighted around the Lake Chad axis with some of the abducted Borno girls. It was while security officers were away that the attack occurred”. so was this true? I guess not because the children are still missing right? you have your answers right there… why stay there for twelve hours doing nothing, if they came back even with one Girl we would understand… there is a big fish involved in all this… I am sorry but this is not adding up.
    I don’t have to be Nigerian to be hurt by all this, but this is very painful!

    Let’s not stoop to tongue bashing, for all we know these numbers could be falsified to continue to incite unrest. Apart from fighting for whatever ridiculous religious excuse they are truly trying to make the country ungovernable like some of the northern politicians promised, the sad truth is that the President doesn’t have the balls to handle this, Nigeria doesn’t need to be governed with kids gloves, She needs someone with balls of Steel. I still say that BH would not have been this bold when Obj was in office even the militants had it coming. President Jonathan allowed his greedy side take over him cos of re election forgeting that people genuinely voted for him and he has failed them, this might actually cost him the presidency come 2015…He might be a good man but he’s a bad president,go back to the classroom Dr..

    @ Anon Bauchi.?.Hmmmmmmm,some valid points. Remind me again, when did Nigeria business with sharia courts start? If we maintained that Nigeria was a former British colony; therefore took after the colonial government and had no business with any religious law would Boko Haram come into being? We even became a member OIC; a multi religious country. The traps we set today, may catch someone tomorrow. Recent disturbances have long been on the making. But if they don’t break us, they will make a us a better country. I have chosen the later.
