Religious War Brews In Borno

Published

on

Over 100 persons were yesterday killed in a communal clash involving three border communities in Gwoza Local Government Council of Borno State, with members of Attagara, Aghapalwa and Gwoshe border communities also said to have taken up arms against one another.

The clash, which started as a communal clash later turned out to be a religious war between Christians and Muslims.

At least nine Christian worshippers were said to have been killed last Sunday by Islamic militants during a Sunday service in Attagara village, leaving many others critically injured. Reports said the youths of the village mobilized and killed 37 of their attackers in a reprisal.

The reprisal attack, according to sources, however made matters worse, as some Muslim youths believed that the Christian youths killed other Muslims rather than Boko Haram members who were responsible for the death of the nine Christian worshippers as well as the burning of churches in Attagara Village.

The Muslim youths were said to have mobilised against Christian youths, leading to the burning of the whole village and the killing of more than 100 villagers.

Ahmed Mohammed Ahmed, an elder and member of the community told journalists in Maiduguri that Boko Haram members attacked the villages at about 1 a.m for killing their members, who earlier attacked churches and communities in the area. He explained that most of the villages in Gwoza are now divided along religious lines, as Christians who are living among Muslims have fled their homes to settle in Christian-dominated areas, while Muslims who were living in areas dominated by Christians have also fled their homes for Muslim-dominated areas.

    Islam is a deadly wicked cult against humanity, they are the anti-christ the Holy Bible talk’s about. I pray the sword of violence & killing shall never depart from thier families, home, & state. The wrath of God shall consum all of you in JESUS name

    I can see relious bigot here writing rubbish..I am a muslim not because I was born a muslim but because it is my choice to be one.I’m a muslim and I am proud to be a Hausa-fulani muslim.It is such a priviledge from God Almight.I thank God for That.However,I don’t have anythin against followers of other religions.cuz ismal categorically states that There is no compulsion in religion and also “To you is your religion and to me (as a muslim) is mine (islam).So instead of fannin religious embers you guys should first understand what is the genesis of all these things happening.and we are not anti christ.we are pro christ.infact prophet Isa is ours..one of the pillars of islam is to believe in all prophets.people lyk joe are givin bad name to peace lovin xtians.

    People like apostle joe are the problem of Nigeria, they never look at issues logically, even his knowledge of the bible is questionable all they need is someone to blame and that’s not the way to go, I agree with jigawa, foreign elements are behind this ably supported by our unscroupulous politicians, ITS A POWER GAME!!!

Nigerian businessman, Femi Otedola has finally reacted to the shooting that took place at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos on Tuesday.

Information Nigeria recalls men dressed in military wears opened fire on unarmed #EndSARS protesters, who convened at the area.

Otedola took to his Instagram page on Sunday to commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives in the unfortunate incident.

Sharing a photo of the Nigerian flag, he wrote;

“The horrors that have been unfolding in our country have left me filled with sadness. I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
