Boko Haram Kills NTA Reporter

Published

on

Members of Boko Haram have murdered an NTA reporter. Nigerian authorities blamed the murder of the NTA cameraman on the Islamic sect Boko Haram

Alhaji Zakariya Isa died after being shot in the head and chest at his home in the northern city of Maiduguri, a military spokesman said.

The sect is thought to be responsible for a series of attacks in northern Nigeria in recent months.

Boko Haram – which means “Western education is forbidden” – usually targets the police and government officials.

However, in recent weeks, journalists have been threatened by the group, which says it wants sharia law more widely applied across Nigeria.

It said it would target reporters after it claimed spokesmen who were not part of the sect were being quoted by the media.

Boko Haram is thought to have carried out the bombing of UN headquarters in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, killing 23 people.

The sect launched an uprising in 2009 which was crushed by the military, leaving hundreds dead.
