Nigeria: Islamists Slaughter 48 Fish Vendors For The Cause Of “Allah”
They wouldn’t have been “good” Muslims in the eyes of the merciful and compassionate “Allah” if they had actually shown mercy or compassion …
Qur’an Sura 24:2, “Let not compassion move you from carrying out [Allah’s] law …”
Qur’an Sura 48:29, “… Those who follow him [Mohammed] are ruthless …”
Bangkok Post – “Boko Haram gunmen killed 48 fish vendors in Nigeria’s restive Borno State, near the border with Chad, the head of the fish traders association told AFP on Sunday.
‘Scores of Boko Haram fighters blocked a route linking Nigeria with Chad near the fishing village of Doron Baga on the shores of Lake Chad on Thursday and killed a group of 48 fish traders on their way to Chad to buy fish,’ Abubakar Gamandi said.
He said the insurgents set up a barricade at Dogon Fili, 15 kilometres (nine miles) from Doron Baga, and stopped a convoy of fish vendors around midday, slaughtering some of them and drowning others in the lake.
‘The Boko Haram gunmen slit the throats of some of the men and tied the hands and legs of the others before throwing them into the lake to drown,’ Gamandi told AFP by telephone from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
Doron Baga, 180 kilometres from Maiduguri, is the base of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF), comprising troops from Nigeria, Chad and Niger fighting the Islamist group.
The MNJTF was formed in 1998 to fight trans-border crime but its mandate was expanded to tame the Boko Haram insurgency in the volatile region.
Gamandi claimed the assailants killed all of their victims without using their guns.
‘The attackers killed their victims silently without the use of the gun to avoid attracting attention from the multi-national troops,’ Gamandi said.
A military officer in Maiduguri confirmed the attack but said details were sketchy.
‘We heard of the attack near Doron Baga but we don’t have any details because the area falls under the operational jurisdiction of the MNJTF,’ the military officer said.
News of the attack was slow to emerge due to the destruction of mobile phone towers in the area by Boko Haram in previous attacks.” Read more.

Flashback: Nigeria: Nearly 1,000 Massacred After Muslims Attack Christian Village, ‘They Are Following The Strategy Of ISIS’ – “The death toll from Boko Haram’s takeover of the predominantly Christian town of Gwoza is nearly 1,000, not the 100 included in many reports, Nigerian relations expert Adeniyi Ojutiku told Baptist Press. The Nigerian military abandoned their weapons and fled Gwoza as Boko Haram attacked Wednesday (Aug. 6), burning government buildings, killing residents and taking hostages. Some residents managed to flee to the mountains bordering Cameroon and are without food or water; others made it 85 miles north to Maiduguri, Associated French Press (AFP) and others reported.” Read more.
