Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram yesterday attacked a Divisional Police Station at Kala/Balge, Gen Mamman Shuwa’s Local Government, North of Borno, killing five policemen while a police officer was wounded. Sources said the gunmen who came to Rann, the centre of the attack used Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in the early hours of yesterday.

Rann is about 292 kilometers north of Maiduguri, the state capital. According to a police source, some property destroyed in yesterday’s attacks include a boarding primary school, the local Government Lodge and the official residence of the council chairman.

Sources also hinted that some telecom masts were destroyed while some arms were also carted away.

A resident of Rann said the attackers took the policemen unawares and launched the offensive with IEDs as soon as they arrived the police station in the early hours of yesterday. He said by 6am the police station and three other public property, including the residence of the council chairman were still burning even as smoke billowed from the ruined buildings.

In another attack on a beer parlour around the Bayan Quarters, Maiduguri, four people including two women attendants were reportedly shot dead.

The Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Borno State Police Command, Gideon Jibrin in a telephone conversation with journalists, confirmed said that there were the two incidents though he did not give further details.(DailySun)

    You cannot take your life or another person’s life and feel that Allah will be pleased with you. Life is sacred in the sight of Allah. In Islam if a person accidentally knocks down another person with his car and the victim dies. Regardless of the religion of the victim, you must fast for 60 days to beg for forgiveness from Allah. If you fast 59 and could not fast the 60th for reason of ill health you have to start all over. This is to discourage killing of fellow human being. Therefore anyone who kills himself or kills another person has no place in ISLAM they are sent by Devil and not ALLAH. A bomb or bullet will not discriminate and they cannot claim that their victims are all Christians. One of the print media put it that OVER 80 per cent of people killed in the North Nigeria by BOKO HARAM are Muslims. Over 80 percent of Islamic scholars in Maiduguri were killed by this same people. Haba. Therefore Christians and Muslims should unite and assist the security agencies with information about these agents of darkness .Is just like what Christ said in Holy Bible that on that day many shall call me Lord and claim to have performed miracles using his name and he will deny them. Allah will bring to justice an atom weigh of injustice you do to your fellow human being. The Prophet (saw) during his life time allowed Christians who visited him from Roman to use his Mosque for their Sunday service and the Holy Quran describes Christians as the people of the book whose food is lawful for Muslims to eat etc. What is their problem with Christians? It should be noted BOKO HARAM is purely a creation of political hooliganism and they are using diversionary tactics (Claiming to Islamize Nigeria) and provocative tactics (Attacking Christians to cause religious war) to actualize the prophecy of the western world that Nigeria will divide in 2015 God forbids. If Allah wants us all to be Muslims or Christians, He can do it within one second. The Quran says there is no compulsory to religion. Government should tackle the issue of unemployment squarely.
