Nigeria: At Least 82 Slaughtered After Devout Muslims Blow Up Less Devout Muslims


There was no immediate claim of responsibility. But does there really need to be? …

“These [‘moderate’ and ‘immoderate’ Muslim] descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” – Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Islam: From Deception To Destruction To Death. For Peaceful Purposes.

News 24 – “Two bomb blasts in the north Nigerian city of Kaduna killed at least 82 people on Wednesday, officials said, in attacks that bore the hallmarks of violent Islamist group Boko Haram.

A suicide bomber targeting a moderate Muslim cleric killed at least 32 of the cleric’s congregation on a busy commercial road. Shortly after, a second bomb blast killed 50 people in the crowded Kawo market on Wednesday, a local Red Cross worker on the scene, who declined to be named, told Reuters.

Two bomb blasts in the north Nigerian city of Kaduna killed at least 82 people on Wednesday, officials said, in attacks that bore the hallmarks of violent Islamist group Boko Haram.

A suicide bomber targeting a moderate Muslim cleric killed at least 32 of the cleric’s congregation on a busy commercial road. Shortly after, a second bomb blast killed 50 people in the crowded Kawo market on Wednesday, a local Red Cross worker on the scene, who declined to be named, told Reuters.

Thousands were gathered for prayers with Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi in Murtala Muhammed square, and when his convoy pulled up, the bomber lunged at him before being stopped by his private security, witnesses and police said.

‘The attack was targeted at the sheikh. No arrest has been made yet,’ said police commissioner Shehu Umar.

The bomb did not injure Bauchi, several witnesses told Reuters. Mustafa Sani, a volunteer for Bauchi’s mosque evacuating bodies, said there were 32 confirmed dead so far.

‘Somebody with a bomb vest… was blocked. He detonated the bomb along with the person that tried to block him,’ Umar said, adding that police had only been able to confirm 25 dead, with 14 wounded. Police sometimes give lower casualty tolls than workers on the scene.

A Reuters reporter saw blood and body parts scattered on the Alkali Road in the city centre. The military used pick-up trucks to cordon off the area. Sirens wailed as fire engines raced to the scene.

An angry crowd started throwing stones at police, who responded by dispersing them with tear gas. Some followers had come from Senegal, Chad and Niger to see the popular sheikh.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for either blast, but Islamist militant group Boko Haram has been staging attacks, especially with explosives, outside its northeastern heartlands in the past three months.” Read more.

Flashback: Nigeria: Islamists Slaughter 30+ In Wedding Convoy, ‘They Targeted Everybody … Muslims, Christians And Children’ – “Gunmen have attacked a wedding convoy in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno, killing more than 30 people including the groom in a suspected ambush, witnesses and survivors said Sunday… ‘It was a gory scene,’ said Kyari Buba, a driver, adding that he had seen more than 30 dead bodies on the side of the road following the attack. ‘I was in the middle of the convoy when the gunmen attacked and I was able to stop the vehicle in time to open the door and run into the bush along with the people I was with,’ he said. ‘When we returned long after the gunmen were gone we met a gory scene with more than 30 people shot dead or slaughtered,’ he told AFP.” Read more.

    Genesis 1:16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.
    After that Satan went boom to what God made. Evil Muslims think like the Devil thinking boom fixes everything.

    There is no more pious Muslim than one that kills himself and as many other people as possible. An impartial observer would have to conclude that violent deaths and mass murders are the highest form of worship in Islam. Tell us more about your “religion of peace”. Nothing is more peaceful than a cemetery, I suppose.

      The Religion of [Rest In] Peace. Makes sense. Islam has a habit of omitting the truth, even in its description of itself.
