Nigeria: Hundreds Of Women And Children Trapped By Boko Haram Dying Of Hunger
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…”
By Hamza Idris, allAfrica – “The Bama Development Foundation (BADEFO) yesterday charged the federal government to be sincere in its utterances about happenings in Borno State, saying hundreds of women and children trapped in Bama town over 10 days ago are dying of hunger and stress.
The Foundation said corpses of youths who were massacred by Boko Haram insurgents were decomposing on the streets because no one could bury them.
Addressing a news conference in Maiduguri yesterday, Chairman of BADEFO, Mallam Mohammed A. Hassan, said Wednesday’s utterance by Mr. Mike Omeri, the coordinator of the Federal Information Centre to the effect that Nigerian security forces had taken over Bama from the insurgents was not true.
He said hundreds of youths have been killed by the insurgents, many others forced to join them to fight against Nigerian troops while many others remained trapped in their houses.
‘Posterity will not forgive us as a community based organization that is always agitating for development within Bama Local Government to sit on the fence watching conflicting reports from both print and electronic media over the unfortunate situation our good people found themselves. Since the day of the attack about 11 days ago, Bama, the second largest local government area in Borno State, is under the control of the Boko Haram sect. This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth. As a matter of fact, we are calling on the state and federal government to expedite action towards reclaiming Bama from the hands of terrorists as those in captivity are under serious trauma, starvation and distress with serious injuries.
‘Eleven days after the incident, no search and rescue operation has been conducted, no damage has been assessed, but we are aware that security and welfare of the people is the fundamental obligation of any meaningful government,’ he said.” Source – allAfrica.
Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos‘ which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’… In every facet of daily life a Muslim’s conduct must be based upon a strict set of Islamic laws, called the Sharia, and anyone failing to follow ‘Allah’s’ burdensome edicts must suffer draconian punishments, non-Musims included. But take a look at the Islamic world today. Is it exemplified by peace and justice and social harmony because of ‘Allah’s laws’? To the contrary, the Islamic world is ravaged by war, by deprivation, by desert and famine and starvation and pestilences, conditions that are true both physically and spiritually, both literally and figuratively. Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well.” Read more.
