Christian communities in northern Nigeria attacked again - 20 people kiled at Igbo group's meeting
| January 09, 2012
At least 20 people who had gathered for a meeting of an Igbo Christian group in Mubi in Adamawa State, Nigeria were killed when gunmen opened fire in a town hall where members of the group were meeting. Reports say that the group had met to discuss how to send the body of an Igbo man who had been shot dead by gunmen on motorbikes a day earlier back to his hometown in eastern Nigeria. An alleged spokesman for Boko Haram, a radical Islamist sect in Nigeria, acknowledged that Boko Haram was responsibile for the attacks and also said that Boko Haram was responsible for an attack on a church in Gombe state, on thursday, where six people were killed and 10 wounded. He said that the attacks were "a response to the three-day ultimatum Boko Haram gave to southerners living in the northern part of Nigeria to move away" and "we are extending our frontiers to other places to show that the declaration of a state of emergency by the Nigerian government will not deter us. We can really go to wherever we want to go." Last weekend, President Goodluck Jonathan declared a partial state of emergency in four states, Borno , Yobe , Plateau and Niger, and ordered the temporary closure of Nigeria's land borders with Niger and Chad. Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for a number of recent attacks in Nigeria, including the Christmas day bombings of churches, in Niger and Plateau states, that killed over 40 Christians. The group has also been blamed for dozens of bombings and shootings in Nigeria and it also claimed responsibility for the bombing of the U.N. headquarters in Abuja which killed at least 23 people.

There is a limit to human endurance. Boko Haram started well as a group desired to effect a change in the distribution of our collective wealth which less than 10,000 people or 0.006% of the population have hijacked. But the hijackers are both christians and muslims, northerners and southerners, and spread all across the tribes. Targeting the southerners and christians will only leave the major issue of national wealth redistribution unattended to. I urge those in Boko Haram to calm down and refrain from targeting the weak, innocent and helpless groups who Nigeria has equally dehumanised. God save Nigeria.

Does Christ Have Power to Stop Boko Haram? Yes, How with election of Grace and Last Salvation Power. This is time for test for all Christ Soldiers. I have it but will not come until CAN and Government of Nigeria agree that I will come. What will happened if I failed to stop them. Nigeria government will send me to jail with a no parol as a liar. If am boasting am boasting in Christ. The Most High God. God of Gods. The Commander in chief of all universe. The power that will unites all faith under Christ. All things in the heavens, on the earth, in the sea, and things under the earth in one head which is Christ.(Ephesians 1:9,10) I dont need help of gun or man made weapons in my operation only my soldiers with their praise and testimonies of truth and foundation of Islam made by Christ from the foundation of all creations. If you love Nigeria take this message to your president. It's the only way to proved to Muslims that Christ is the Lord of Lords and God of Gods. He is the Allah. God to Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael their Mother and fathers.

Call it the end of old world and begining of New World.

This act is babaric. I call on all xtians of southern origin in the north to come back home. I am also calling on people of eastern nigeria to retaliate by rising up against muslims of nothern origin living in east nigeria.

Are you serious NGEX with some of the comments you approve and publish for your reading public? Who is this Pastor Commander Samyoung Onwuzulike from Washington, DC, USA and how in the world does his articles pass an elementary school’s essay by anyone’s measure that NGEX always give its readers upset stomach reading articles that sounded like one begging for psychiatric help?

Does NGEX truly evaluate comments by its readers before publishing them? If you do, and you time after time choose to publish such incoherent babbling of someone like this, can I therefore demand that the evaluating panel check into a psychiatric ward? I hope it isn't a matter of NGEX attempt to fill in spaces due to lack of readership that would allow such "vomits" from this fellow to be published. Understandably, NGEX does not have to dictate what people should write but comments ought to meet certain criteria among which are; thoughtfulness, good grammar, and relevant comments to the issue.

This fellow’s comments make one wonder if he is hallucinating or under the influence of some substance. Unless NGEX allows his incoherent and unintelligible articles as some prescribed therapy by his doctor to cure a malady, readers should be spared the agony of indigestion. Any more of such pathetic publications would signal your lack of commitment to your large readership and could risk NGEX being heaped in the trash can.

I am sorry but serious minded folks should be spared the agony of the heart attack and disgrace of someone living in the United States that is incapable of stringing a sentence together. NGEX, either you desist publishing such incoherent articles or be dumped in the trash.

Admin Response: Thank you for your feedback. Our policy is to simply provide a platform for individuals to share their opinions freely, whether we agree with them or not, or even understand them fully. We do try to ensure that comments are intelligible and cohesive, and do not approve comments that are clearly not intelligible, but we also do not just censor comments. And there are some readers that react positively to the comments that you mention
