July 8, 2014 – Boko Haram Attacked Jos Muslims In Mosque During Ramadan Prayers, 3 Injured

A predominantly Muslim community was attacked on Sunday in Jos South LGA of Plateau state during Ramadan prayers . The attack carried out by some suspected  Boko Haram terrorists injured 3 worshippers.

The spokesperson of the Special Task Force on Jos crisis, STF, Ikedichi Iweha, confirmed the incident to journalists via phone on Monday.

Mr. Iweha stated that the situation was under control.

The incident, according to witnesses, occurred at about 9:00 p.m.

One witness, Bala Mohammed, said the worshipers were observing “tarawi,” a prayer said after the night prayers during Ramadan.

Mr. Mohammed, who is the secretary, Bukuru Elders Committee, said the gunmen opened fire on a mosque in Bukuru Town.

He alleged that the attackers were from a neighbouring community, Gyel.

“Some time ago, a rocket launcher suspected to be from Gyel community was launched on our community. Apart from that, grenades were also thrown at our community. There have also been persistent shootings from Gyel community and we don’t know why they are attacking us,” Mr. Mohammed said.

Mr. Mohammed solicited for security assistance from government.

“We, the Bukuru Elders Council are calling on the federal, state and local governments to intervene.”

Two of the victims shot by the suspects, Lawal Muhammad and Bashir Iliyasu, at the time of filing this report, were said to still be receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital, while the third victim has been discharged.

    Every circumstance is within the knowledge of God. He knows who bokoharams are because some christians are also versed in arabic language.

    I seriously doubt this “film show” which obviously seems to aim at diverting attention, to be an attack. Attack indeed. Has there ever been any Boko attack with only 3 INJURY recorded. Even d hospital where they were taken to remains undisclosed.

    @rethink,so if some christians are versed in Arabic language does it mean they are book haram? Abeg,make dem no fool us that attack na lie .why didn’t they bomb them too? Since that’s what they are doing on christians and innocent citizens. It could be a make believe attack

    • Imagine!

      July 8, 2014 at 4:11 PM

      If its xtians or a church being attacked,its a true story,but once its the other way round,its a make believe..What a way to think!..every deep thinker knows the issue of boko-haram is much much more Political than religious.
