​Suspected ​Boko Haram​ militants​, on Thursday, killed at least 20 people in an attack on a remote village near Askira Uba, Borno State.

Survivors said the insurgents stormed Dile village at 2 a.m. in several vehicles, burning houses and killing anybody
​in​ sight.

Ibrahim Usman, a resident who fled to Mubi, said 20 persons were feared killed in the village and many others sustained injuries during the attack.

“Dozens of Boko Haram fighters attacked our village ‎at about 2 a.m. and killed 20 people,” Mr. usman said. “Many of us fled to the bush to avoid being killed. Everybody was running for his life. We don’t know the whereabouts of our family members.”

He called on military authorities to deploy troops to the area to ‎check the activities of the militants.

Another fleeing resident, Gambo Abakura, said “They just started burning houses and shooting at sight.

”Most of the insurgents had turbaned their heads; others in quasi-military uniform, chanting Allahu Akbar, meaning Allah is Great,” he said.

Although attempt to speak to military authorities in Yola was not successful but a security source confirmed the attack.

”Yes, there was an attack because many residents had fled to Mubi and they told us the insurgents have several camps in the bush around the area from where they wreak havoc on villages,” said a local vigilante in Askira, Mallam Baba.

    See how my people perish for lack of knowledge….

    Boko Haram is killing in hundreds to set up ISLAMIC STATE OF NIGERIA by force.
    Muhammadu Buhari then threatens Nigerian Christians with Sharia Law nationwide.
    Sharia Law nationwide is the central feature of an ISLAMIC STATE OF NIGERIA.
    So, how did the Nigerian Christians react to these clear and imminent dangers?
    Nigerian Christians first voted out a Christian President and Commander-in-chief.
    Second, the Christians voted for Buhari to inaugurate Sharia Law for Islamic State.
    Then, the Christians went for thanksgiving at the Redeemed Mosque (sorry, church),
    – to give all the glory to Jesus Christ. God, how my people perish for lack of knowledge!

      ……….And, the threat of mass murder issued against Igbo Christians

      In southern Nigeria, Rilwanu Akiolu – the Muslim Oba of Lagos – has issued pogrom threat
      directed at all IGBO CHRISTIANS IN LAGOS. The Igbo SHALL be mass murdered in Lagos lagoon
      should they reject his diktat that all Christians in Lagos state MUST vote for the Islamic APC party.

      Oba Akiolu now ridiculed as a Mujahedeen by the enraged Igbo people is not budging at all.
      He has refused to withdraw his mass murder threat and also refused to apologize for even issuing it.
      Yoruba Christians now have clear sense of a catastrophe awaiting them under Nigeria’s Islamic Jihad.
      Having blundered by voting in APC Jihadist President, Yoruba Christians rush to the Igbo for alliance.
      That alliance of secularists and Christians is lined up to vote out the APC Islamist party on Saturday.

        “Sharia should be introduced all over Nigeria. I will continue to show openly and inside me,
        the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria. God willing,
        we will NOT stop the agitation for total implementation of Sharia in the country.
        It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the context of one Nigeria,
        to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims
        in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims on
        the need to promote the full implementation of Sharia law.”

    So Duncee will not tell his boys to stop killing? ……………….Not enough blood of Dogs & Baboons spilled on the streets? Nonsense!

  • Kimono

    Gowon was kicked out via a coup…He knew he was not educated enough to be relevant thereafter, so he went to England and enrolled in a University. He obtained Ba, Ma & Phd degrees. But Duncee was kicked out, and for the next 30yrs he kept looking for his waec certificate…Na wao

    • Bishop

      And PDP found the certificate in Nigerian’s custody. Enough A’s that send a PhD holder home

  • Oba_ I’ll_Kill_U

    Just look at the illiterate animals moving about looking for their own people to kill.

    Ironically, if any of this boys, with or without school certificate decides to contest Nigerian elections in 2055 when they will be in the age bracket of 73-77yrs, I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that a particular region outside the North will all line up behind such animal and vote massively for him. It is the tragedy of our situation where deceit, mischief & crookedness have become the order of the day for many.

      An Illiterate without leaving cert is now your president. You either face it or you have two choices. check out of the country or hug the nearest transformer. The illiterate has come to be, at least for the next eight years. For the pat six years the educated, cosmopolitant elite has nothing to show but unprecedented high profile corruption, impunity of the highest order, apparent and deliberate neglect to insecurity, deception, regionalism and ethnicity. You shall continue to loose elections for you can deceive us no more. and now the ORUBEBE style was exposed. So what next?
