Unending: Dozens Murdered As Islamic Militants Destroy Entire Nigerian Village, ‘They Started Shooting Everywhere’
Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a [chlōros – green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [thērion – savage, brutal, bestial men] of the earth…”
For the glory of “Allah” and the prophet of death. This wanton murder and mayhem is at the point today where it is near impossible for most of us to keep track of all the death and destruction. But there is One who is keeping record of every last detail …
Revelation 20:11, 13-14a, “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them… And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire …”
BBC News – “Suspected militants have shot dead at least 39 people in an attack on a village in north-eastern Nigeria.
The attackers – believed to be from the Boko Haram group – destroyed the entire village of Mainok, about 50km (30 miles) west of the city of Maiduguri.
The incident took place late on Saturday, hours after two bomb blasts killed at least 50 people in Maiduguri.
Boko Haram has been conducting a four-year violent campaign to demand Islamic rule in northern Nigeria.
The morning after the latest attack, bodies were lying in front of the mosque waiting to be buried and buildings in Mainok were still on fire, the BBC’s Will Ross reports from Lagos.
An eyewitness described how the attack unfolded: ‘They started shooting everywhere, they started burning all the houses in the village.
‘I don’t think that there is any house that is standing in the village and they have killed at least 39 people in the village.
‘These people have guns – AK47, RPGs and so on and so forth, they can come and attack anybody and kill, including women and children, they kill everybody that can see them.’
Earlier two bombs exploded in a densely populated area of Maiduguri – a city which Boko Haram has often targeted.” Read more.
