Again, Damaturu under heavy Boko Haram attack

Damaturu, the Yobe state capital, has again come under intense assault by suspected Boko Haram militants, barely a month after a similar attack killed many residents.

Residents and security operatives said the city is currently under heavy gunfire and multiple explosions forcing people to cringe in their homes.

Umar Haruna, a civil servant residing in Damaturu told PREMIUM TIMES that the city and its residents have come under attack again.

He said the attack started at about 8p.m.

“We are under attack; gun shooting everywhere in Damaturu…we dont know what to do now,” he said.

A top security officer of the State Security Service, SSS, who refused to be named because he was not authorised to speak on the development, told our correspondent via SMS that “Yes, there is an attack going on here and I believe the soldiers and the police are containing the attacks”.

The attack is the second in the last two months on Damaturu.

The insurgents had launched a heavy attack on the capital on December 1, targeting the government house.

The attack was successfully repelled by the Nigerian security forces.

UPDATE [10:30PM, Friday January 9, 2015]

Reports at this time indicate that soldiers are succeeding in repelling the attacking Boko Haram terrorists, preventing them from gaining entry into the Yobe state capital.

A security official said the soldiers, stationed in Damaturu, are fighting the insurgents on the fringes of the town even as they are currently exchanging fire with the terrorists near Katarko village, some 20km away.

“As I have said earlier we are on top of the situation as far as this attack is concerned because our men have been fully mobilised to deal with such situation and presently we have already pushed them back towards Gujba road near one village called Katarko,” the official told PREMIUM TIMES.

A resident of Damaturu, who also provided an update said,  “We are happy that the shooting has gone down even though we still hear periodic sounds of gun shooting and detonation of explosives.”

    Na wao, a state capital in Nigeria is under attack, while the president of the federation is campaigning. Only in Nigeria

    • orkar

      coward–when we called for separation did u not say naaaaaaaaaaaaaaa—those fighting in the fulani north are fulanis like buhari——atiku–kwankaso–elrufai—and sanusi–from the west African sub-region————–in France not a single French man blamed the French president–over the murder of the journalist-Besides–why did buhari not flag off his campaign–in the Fulani north–instead he is roaming about in yenagoa-

      • Chris1408

        Not gonna respond to you. You’re a waste of my time

        • Umar Mahmud

          We are all setting ducks.

      • pastorakinleye

        The subsidy payment used to support internet thugs like you will run out soon. The last days of the PDP/Jonathan mess are here.

        • orkar

          let buhari go and flag off his campaign–in the fulani north–instead of rentinrg motor park touts to help him divert attention from his certificate scandal? Don’t u know world leaders are watching him-?—I mean some white men will shake hands with him with fear—-and ask him—about his affidavit—meanwhile–the incident in France has finished buhari—the APC jihadist—which President would want to have him relax with them————–

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    MEND terrorists have already endorsed Buhari and Boko-haram is expected to follow suit . The APC are flaunting the terrorist credentials like a Nobel prize award .

    Meanwhile Buhari is still ducking and diving ,he has not submitted those certificates to INEC,he is still brandishing those Affidavits !!

    • Chris1408

      Why are you talking about a forgotten issue? This election is referendum on GEJ administration and performance. Nigerians can’t afford another four minutes of GEJ talkless four more years. You can’t talk about GEJ achievements thus you are hung up on certificate issue no one really care about.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        The issue of Buharis certificate evasion and possible perjury is in it’s early stages !!

        • Chris1408

          I see, cos y’all don’t have anything to talk about. So you rather make the election a non issue. Not happening. Tell the world what GEJ administration has done to move Nigeria and Nigerians welfare forward. Be objective

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            In fact that is just the reason why BUHARI SHOULD SHOW HIS CERTIFICATES…….so that distractions can be avoided.

          • pastorakinleye

            You’re a shameless, ridiculous bigot with no regard for decency. Nigeria’s years of the locust under Jonathan is ending soon.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            I reject your name calling !! I am a decent gentleman of impeccable character….a first class patriot and democrat.

            Has Dumbo released the forensic report on the NNPC that Nigerians paid for? That would tell us the depth of the rot in his sister’s dross… and that is of more interest to Nigerians than the credentials of a man who has run for the same office three times in the past. Stup*d diversionist, get a life! Anambra Clown, osu mordafcuker!

          • Tunde

            Tawanda, for a long time,I’ve resisted responding to any of your imbecilic puerile posts but I have one question for you. If you believe in this GEJ so ,much, why hasn’t he moved heaven and earth to rescue the chibok girls? If as you say he is the answer to ALL Nigeria’s problems. why hasn’t he done that? And before you spout your usual religious and ethnic diatribe, remember these girls are innocent in all of these. Today in France, their government took a BOLD stand and routed terrorists that killed and kidnapped hostages. that is what is called decisive leadership. but I guess GEJ cant even spell leadership, talk less know what it means. Irrespective of what you say, History has already judged your moronic and “illiterate” GEJ as a monumental failure. I wont trade abuse or inconsequential tirades with you, If all you are concerned about is whether or not Buhari has a certificate or not, then I guess it shows what your priorities are.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Your question is an unreasonable one !! Why is it that all the combined military,technological and political prowess of all the world powers have not defeated Al quaeda,the Taliban,ISIS,Alshabab etc after more than ten years of wars ?

            Why is it that Al quaeda and ISIS keep abducting westerners and beheading them without western leaders rescuing their citizens ?

            Answer these two questions then you will realise how unreasonable your questions is !

            There is no silver bullet for Islamic terrorism,you just fight to the best of your ability and that is what the government and our security agencies will continue doing !!

        Who cares about MEND, pls talk something that can promote the image of Nigeria in the international community and not terrorist group like MEND. After all the President has just confirmed that they planned to kill him. He however refused to take action because they are from south-south.

    ================================================================================
    HOW NIGERIAN EDUCATIONAL POLICIES breed Terrorists & Suicide Bombers…encourages low IQ
    ================================================================================
    An 8yr old would be suicide bomber was herself injured when her fellow suicide bomber detonated he own bombs in Kano few months ago. The 8yr old was rescued like other ‘normal’ victims and rushed to a nearby clinic only for the nurses to discover that she was a bomb. I can only imagine their reaction.

    But the girl confessed that her own Father was the one who took her to Boko haram members and offered her as sacrifice for the course of change in Aso rock. A girl who would have to score just 2 marks to get admission to Nigerian UNITY schools against the 135 marks required from students from the South, East and West, will most definitely have low IQ and would not understand the meaning of death. Her father would definitely not be expected to know better. He too would have had the ‘privilege’ of been treated to such low standards, and perhaps not having a certificate of basic education but an affidavit.

    The question is: Is there special or different salary scale in the civil service for these individuals when they become adult? Nigeria is indeed an enigma. One ‘country’, two systems…

  • warry

    May be MEND of Henry Okah that GEJ initially did not believe can bomb him until proven otherwise by intelligence and BH are fighting to remove him.

    The United States on Friday explained why the training of the Nigerian military was suspended by the Nigerian government.

    US Ambassador to Nigeria said: “We have already started training, at the request of Nigerian government, to train one of its battalions up to a world class standard. We brought in the best military trainers in the world. But the agreement with the government was that we will provide the trainers in order to do this properly, the Nigerian army will provide the equipment needed to do this training. It is a partnership. We are doing this together. It is not something we are doing for you.

    “Training started, but sadly it got to a point that we had to stop because the equipment was not available.

    “And after several weeks of waiting, Nigerian government with president Goodluck Jonathan directives ended the training agreement .we could not keep the trainers here and the Nigerian government decided to end the training.

    “I say this with great regret, it was a great opportunity to train a world class battalion but unfortunately it stopped at the request of your government. But his doesn’t have to derail our cooperation. Whatever reasons were for that, we continue to move forward. As I have said, could we do training again in the future, sure everything is possible.

    Mr Entwistle said the ideas that there are arms embargo against Nigeria are not true, insisting that no country is doing more to support Nigeria in its fight against terror that the American government.

    Former leader of the group, ‘Gen’ Reuben Wilson, has called on Nigerians to disregard the claim by the fake MEND.

    “We have are aware that the APC and their presidential candidate are desperate for power and are ready to do anythging to mislead the public as part of their desperate efforts to take over power this year. But it is criminal to use the name of MEND to score cheap points and deceive the public”

        Deri, your analogy is warped. Already Jonathan has turned himself and his Ijaw people against Nigerians, and boxed himself into a corner with people like you, Clark and Asari, with his rhetorics and paranoid assessment of situations, that every critics and opposition against him, want him dead.
        Which Militants are you on about? Asari? MEND has just bust your bubble and shown us where their loyalty lies. We’ve had ENOUGH of this THREAT, nothing is going to happen if Jonathan does not get elected.
        Nigeria will move on to better things, and Jonathan & his co- militants like yourself will be forgotten, and dealt with if need be, ok.
        He is the President and should act like one, we are tired of his kindergarten behaviour. It’s time for a CHANGE and we, Nigerians demand for it.

      • northern western alliance

        Yes if the Ijaws think they can face Hausa-Fulani let them come. We are ready for them. Instead of telling one of your one to sit up, you are blaming others for your mass failure. Yes, problems of Nigeria including oil bunkering, corruption, kidnapping, boko haram are all created by Hausa- Fulani. Let me tell you nobody as far as the present Nigeria is concerned can win presidential election without the support of your enemies the Hausa-Fulani. How many are you in number. You call us all sorts of names parasites, boko haramis but we are keeping quiet and listening to your foolishness. You cannot compare the number of educated ones in the north with those of the south south or south east. After all how many are u. We will elect Buhari and after his two terms it will be the term of Yorubas and the cycle continues like that.

Just this morning, Amnesty International just confirmed to us through all International medias that 2, 000 people comprising men, women, children and youths were massacered at Baga still you are busy spending ill gotten 21 Billion Naira evil people donated to you so that you can stay in power. These areas are Nigerian territories but you and the military can not deploy enough soldiers to protect Nigerians. jonathan you and pdp are total failures in all sectors to Nigerians and even you know that you can NEVER WIN RE-ELECTION COME FEBRUARY 2015. FOUR MORE YEARS OF YOU AND PDP WILL TOTALLY SINK NIGERIA. How can 2, 000 Nigerians be killed like chickens? Just last week, you held a security meeting with your military chiefs and yet a rag tag bunch of terrorists are killing Nigerians at will. jonathan and pdp YOU ALL ARE TOTAL DISGRACE TO MANKIND.

    • Etomi

      Guy cool down…I understand your exasperation…

      But before I continue, I feel obligated to announce to your chagrin that GEJ would still win the election…

      Be sure, Jonathan would be retuned to office by popular ballot..He will win the Feb. 14 poll even if not by a landslide…

      You know why, even heaven knows that Jonathan is not to be blamed; that the problem is orchestrated – fanned, fueled and fed by those who are seeking to disgrace him out of office…by northern nationalists!!!!

      I am sure you are not a northerner; you are a Christian southern, and that is why you are aghast by these killings…your soul seem tormented..

      But those guys in the north care less; they are ready and willing to sacrifice their sons, daughters, and wives for political power…

      Is it any news that they willfully donate their sons, wives and daughter as martyrs of Boko Haram…

      They are ready and willing to wipe out their own people, if only they could reclaim Aso Rock, because for them any and everything could be dispensed with just for power…

      They believe the killings are justifiable on the grounds that it is the sure-fire way of driving Jonathan out of office…

      I tell you, the hardest war is the one seemingly pitching a Muslim (or Muslims) with a Christian (or Christians)….

      Here, whereas the Muslim sees it without second thought as a holy war, the secular-minded Christian hardly sees it as such..

      And once the Muslim defines the conflict as “holy war,” he would fight dirty; he would become suicidal; his life and the lives of others would count for nothing…this is governed by the concept of martyrdom which is tied to the concept of holy war (or fight in the cause of Allah) in Islam…

      The more you slaughter them, they more BH is recruiting new members in droves from, of all paces, mosques and from donor parents; and from ordinary young Muslim men and women who believe in the BH cause—their number can never be depleted!!!

      And once Muslims see that a holy war is under way, even the poorest of the poor, would donate his last farthing to the cause…

      I tell you that BH is getting sponsorship from the wretched, the rich as well as the super-rich of northern extraction…

      BH is well-funded!!!

      But whereas the BH number is growing, that of Nigeria’s military personnel is shrinking, because those being killed are scarcely quickly replaced, owing to the fact that not too many Nigerians believe in their country enough to die for it….but arguably the BH in every northern Muslim, without making overt show of it, believes in the BH cause….

      Have you asked what BH is really fighting for…

      If you recall this BH thing fully started with the inauguration of Jonathan as president, following which Abuja was bombed in quick successions..

      They evolved into targeting churches…

      Now they just get into the streets and maul people down indiscriminately….

      And just following GEJ’s inauguration of his political campaign Thursday, they go on an unprecedented killing binge in Baga….

      Why? They want to frustrate GEJ’s presidential ambition; they want to forcibly stall his campaign…

      They want him to be ashamed of pursuing his legitimate ambition; they aim at discrediting him…

      Note these words: everything about BH is political…

      I however take solace is this: no amount of blackmail would reduce God; He is the One that sets up kings and deposes Kings…

      Not only me, but also one of the world’s greatest philosophers G.W.F. Hegel maintain that God is deeply involved in the affairs of men..

      If heaven has Jonathan for blame in this wanton killings, my prediction that he would win the election will fail!!!!

      But if conversely heaven absolves him, then his traducers would be exposed; and he surely would be returned come Feb. 14!!!

    Opposition Triumvirate: Boko Haram, Northern Nationalists, APC?

    These killings in the north are orchestrated!!!

    They are being fanned, fueled and fed by elements who believe that it is the north’s turn to produce the president in
    2015, i.e. northern nationalists!!!!

    My sympathies must however go not to northerners (predominantly Muslims), but to predominantly southern Christians,
    who are truly aghast by these killings; whose souls are indeed tormented by them..

    Those guys in the north care less; they are ready and willing to sacrifice their sons, daughters, and wives for
    political power…

    Is it any news that they willfully donate their sons, wives and daughter as martyrs of Boko Haram…

    They are ready and willing to wipe out their own people and community, if only they could reclaim Aso Rock,
    because for them any and everything is dispensable just for power…

    They believe the killings are justifiable on the grounds that it is the sure-fire way of driving Jonathan out
    of office…

    I tell you, the hardest war is the one seemingly pitching a Muslim (or Muslims) with a Christian (or
    Christians)….

    Here, whereas the Muslim would see it, without second thought, as a holy war, the secular-minded Christian hardly sees
    it as such..

    And once the Muslim defines the conflict as “holy war,” he would fight dirty; he would become suicidal; his life and the lives of others would count for nothing; this is governed by the concept of martyrdom which is tied to the concept of holy war (or fight in the cause of Allah) in Islam…

    The more you slaughter, the more BH is recruiting new members in droves from, of all paces, mosques and from donor
    parents; and from ordinary young Muslim men and women who believe in the BH cause – their number can never be depleted!!!

    And once Muslims see that a holy war is under way, even the poorest of the poor, would donate his last farthing to
    the cause…

    Tell you: BH is getting sponsorship from the wretched, the rich as well as the super-rich of northern extraction…

    BH is well-funded!!!

    But whereas the BH number is growing, that of Nigeria’s military personnel is shrinking, because those being killed
    are scarcely quickly replaced, owing to the fact that not too many Nigerians believe in their country enough to die for it….

    Comparatively however the BH in every northern Muslim, without making overt show of it, believes in the BH cause….

    Have you asked what BH is really fighting for…

    It is recalled that this BH thing fully started with the inauguration of Jonathan as president, following which Abuja was bombed in quick successions..

    They evolved into targeting churches…

    Now, the insurgents just get into the streets and maul people down indiscriminately….

    Think: What are they fighting for by killing indiscriminately? Muslims, Christians and animists are wantonly hauled
    into the grave, just like that..

    And just following GEJ’s inauguration of his political campaign Thursday, they go on an unprecedented killing binge
    in Baga….

    Why? Simple: they want to frustrate GEJ’s presidential ambition; they want to forcibly stall his campaign…

    They want him to be ashamed of pursuing his legitimate ambition; they aim at discrediting him…

    Note these words: everything about BH is political…

    I however take solace is this: no amount of blackmail would reduce God; He is the One that sets up kings and deposes Kings…

    Not I only, but also one of the world’s greatest philosophers G.W.F. Hegel, maintain that God is involved in
    the affairs of men..

    If heaven has Jonathan for blame in this wanton killings, my prediction that he would win the election will
    fail!!!!

    But if conversely heaven absolves him, then his traducers would be exposed; and he surely would be returned to
    office come Feb. 14!!!
