Boko Haram massacre 60 people near Cameroon border

Gunmen

Suspected Boko Haram gunmen on Sunday killed at least 60 people in Nigeria’s troubled Borno state close to the border with Cameroon, a local official said.

“The attackers, who are no doubt Boko Haram insurgents, attacked Amchaka and nearby villages this morning, hurling IEDs (improvised explosive devices) into homes and setting them on fire,” Baba Shehu Gulumba, Bama local government administrator said.

“They then went on a shooting spree, opening fire on confused residents as they tried to flee, killing 60 people and injuring several others,” Gulumba said from Maiduguri, the state capital.

The attackers arrived Amchaka and neighbouring villages in Bama district in trucks, and on motorcycles and two armoured vehicles, shooting residents and torching homes, he said.

Other local sources also confirmed the attack but did not give a death toll.

The assailants vandalised boreholes, the only water source for the villagers, Gulumba added.

The attacks have prompted a mass exodus of people from villages in the area.

Following a spate of brutal attacks on schools and universities, around 400 students in the state had boycotted university entrance exams on Saturday, officials said.

  1. many of you here are really ignorant about what islam is all about,how i wish you would go back and learn about the concept and history of islam,the book provide how peaceful a muslim should be but from all indication a conspiracy has been unfolding were non muslims especially the christians are killing innocent muslims and blame them for it,call a dog a bad name in order to hang it.
    for your information there is a confessional audio statement by a member of the CAN BAZATA group whos activities are sabotage by being financed to egypt to go and learn islamic way of the muslims,their doctrines,learn arabic,quran and hadith in order to come back to nigeria and settled among the muslims,pray and eat with them while gathering information about them and their activities and sabotage it.this is just an audio confession of a former christian member who was win over by the humility of muslims and islam that he was expected to ruin.
    from rumours going round that CAN is terror organization,this is the same thing they did in the 80s about that MAITATSINE from the vatican who transform into a muslim eating human fleash shouting ALLAHU AKBAR when attacking innocent people,atleast this is also been confessed by professor Dauda Ojobe,the first secretary gen of CAN and the 3rd bishop in northern nigeria,member anyagolu panel who confirmed that MAITATSINE was a christian from the vatican,the reason why President Shagari refused to release a white paper on the committee resolutions.

    please take your insult if u lack the knowledge of what is really going on.peace

  2. i love Muslims and as well i hate them just for one thing, the killings that come from them.if the real Muslims, the devoted and committed ones can come together and protest over the problems they face,it will enable us to know who are the real Muslims across the nation.Since no actions have been seen from those who call themselves Muslims,it means that they are in support of what others do in the name of Islamic religion.May God help us.

  3. There is no debating the fact that islam is evil. Religion that teaches killing to go to paradise when God said thou shall not kill. Let the muslims continue deciving themselves. They know the truth but because they are blind followers. They will never accept it. Look at all the muslim world. It is trouble every where. Hope the muslims can just leave and found their sharia nation

  4. @Abba Othman or whatever u are, can’t u see for urself that Islam is self distructive, inhuman and backward. Before now I used to admire the moslems from South West Nigeria, but now I know they are all blood suckers. I applaud the foresight of the Angolan govt. for outlawing this stupid cult

  5. There is nothing Islamic about boko haram activities but still some misinformed, ignorant and bigots are opening their stinking mouth to castigates Islam.

  6. Rockson Wilson, from your statement, one would have known that you are nothing but a religion bigot. What do you know about Islam and what has confirmed to you that the attacks are not from the non-muslims in what they might have regarded as retaliation to what they claimed had been done to them earlier.??? Can you tell me who hell you regarded as the world that would not allow Islam???. What knowledge do you have about history of Christianity which you say you belong??. In the south-south and South East where people indulged in all evil activities like robbery, kidnapping, rapist, ritualism, drug trafficking, babby factory and all sorts, would you tell me that is the definition of Christianity??. Are all these parts of Christianity???. You are nothing but a condemned hypocrite.

  7. It is disheartening, and Nigerians has almost become numbed when reading about this events atleast twice a day. How ever, one just wonder what on earth is Islam? Because every thing else about Islam we know are absolutely inhuman. Can then can the world allowed Islam to exist?

    • WILSON is Antibalaka in CAR also a moslem led terror organization. Boko Haram is Boko Haram, Alqaeda is Alqaeda and Islam is Islam diferent. Dont allow ignorant to consumme you
