The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, says more than 17,000 Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, have been registered in six camps in Yola.

The agency’s Spokesperson, Sani Datti, said in Yola on Tuesday that more than 6,000 children were among the IDPs.

Mr, Datti said that the agency, in collaboration with the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency and the Nigerian Red Cross were managing six major camps.

He said “The present figure of IDPs so far as captured by NEMA shows those stationed in various camps in Yola and the figure stands at 17,045.

“Out of the figure, more than 6,000 are children,” Mr. Datti said.

  • The following is from my article “Islam’s Jesus”:

    … The moment Islam gains followers in a territory, they must force every
    infidel, including fake-Muslims to submit to Allah/Islamic law. At that
    point, the Quranic and Hadithic verses that every Muslim must advocate
    and follow are of this sort:

    Sahih Bukhari 1.2.24 “Allah’s apostle said: I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify
    that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s apostle …”

    “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him” (Sahih Bukhari 9.57)

    “… KILL the idolaters [non-Muslims] wherever you find them, and take them
    captive, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. …” (Q9.5)

    Q9.73 “O Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites …”

    Q4.89 “They desire that you should disbelieve [Allah] as they do, so that you
    might be like them; therefore take not friends from among them until
    they flee their homes for Allah, but if they turn back to what is forbidden,
    then SEIZE THEM and KILL THEM wherever you find them …”

    “The prophet Muhammad said, ‘burn all [including fellow Muslims] who do not
    come to Mosque for prayer, burn them alive inside their homes” (Sahih Bukhari 1.11.626)

    Sahih Muslim 41.6985 “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger … as saying:
    ‘The Last Hour will not come until Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. Even the rocks and trees will cry:
    O Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him …”
