The Executive Secretary of Yobe Hospitals Management Board, Mamman Mohammed, has confirmed that 119 casualties were reported with 30 deaths in the Monday bomb attack in Potiskum, Yobe.

He told Governor Ibrahim Gaidam, who paid a visit to the victims at the Potiskum General Hospital that some of the victims with severe injuries had been referred to tertiary health institutions in Azare and Nguru.

Mr. Gaidam directed that free treatment be given to the victims, saying “the government will bear all the medical bills of the victims, including those referred to other hospitals outside the state”.

He also condoled with the Shiite group on the death of their members.

Members of the group were presumably attacked by a suicide bomber while on a procession.

  • The attacks that took place on 11-Sept-2001 in the U.S. were perpetrated by EDUCATED Muslims
    (e.g., Pilots). About 3000 people were killed on that one day (within 3 hours),
    more than 6000 people injured and at-least $10 Billion loss in property and infrastructure.
    15 of the 19 perpetrators were SAUDIS, 1 Egyptian, 1 Lebanese, 2 from Arab Emirates.

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

    In Islam, hiding the intention to expand Islamic territory is a virtue. When Muhammad didn’t have enough soldiers,
    he agreed to be peaceful with Mecca (Peace Treaty of Hudaibiya), but after he gained more followers,
    he went from Medina to Mecca and conquered Mecca during Ramadan
    (a pre-Islamic pagan fasting month in which Meccans won’t usually fight). Following the example of Muhammad,
    Muslims (even today) advocate and follow Quranic and Hadithic verses that speaks of making peace with infidels
    when Muslims are the minority in a society. Examples of such verses are: Q2.256 “Let there be no compulsion in religion …”
    The Qur’an and Hadith doesn’t limit the expansion of Ummah al-Islamiyah,
    the lands over which Sharia’s Theocracy must be administered;
    in comparison to the Torah’s Theocracy over a specified land: Eretz YisraEl.
