Sept 27, 2013 – Boko Haram Terrorists Attacked Yobe Church, Pastor & 2 Children Killed

On Thursday the 26th of September 2013, some suspected Boko Haram gunmen attacked a church located in Dorowa, Yobe state.

In the attack, the alleged terrorists killed the pastor and his 2 children after which they burnt down the whole building.

Boko Haram, which has said it is fighting to create an Islamic state in mainly Muslim northern Nigeria, has repeatedly attacked churches in its four-year insurgency.

“Unknown gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram terrorists attacked” the church in Yobe state early on Thursday, during the attack, a pastor and his two children were killed,”area military

The church “and two other houses in the community were burnt by the gunmen before fleeing the scene of the incident,” the statement further said.

The killings occurred in the town of Dorawa, some 30 kilometres (18 miles) from the site of a brutal school attack in July that saw dozens of students slaughtered.
Yobe was one of three northeastern states placed under a state of emergency in mid-May as the military launched a major offensive aimed at crushing Boko Haram.

Yobe has seen less violence than neighbouring Borno state, Boko Haram’s base, but the insurgents have carried out major attacks there.

Attacks on churches, including suicide bombings, were once a near weekly occurence but have declined in recent months.

Since the emergency measures were imposed Boko Haram has largely targeted civilians as well as vigilante groups which have formed to help the military.

The latest violence came after the emergence of a new video, in which a man who resembles Boko Haram’s leader mocked reports of his possible death.

Abubakar Shekau, declared a global terrorist by the United States, taunted the regional military spokesman who said he “may have been” fatally wounded in a clash on June 30.

While Shekau’s whereabouts and condition are unknown, the violence has continued, casting doubt on the success of the four-month-old military offensive.

The Boko Haram conflict was earlier this year estimated to have killed more than 3,600 people, including deaths caused by the security forces. The current toll is likely much higher.

    • ALL RELIGIONS ARE BLOOD SOCKER, IF THE CRUSADER HAVE NOW REST A BIT , DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE saint , The bad old days are back when these two religions are killing unbelievers . The christian countries are to blame for all these problem we are facing , because it is the kriyos who are the manufacturers of all sort of deadly weapons and are distributing it to the countries , all over the world , they failed to realised that they are suplying weapon of mass disruction, because of their selfishness , i study all religion , but i have decided to create my own energy. i worship myself now and my GOD , I DO NOT WANT ANYBODY TO TELL ME anymore , WHO TO BELIEVE , AND I HAVE STOPPED CALLING ANY NAMES THAT INVOLVE BLOOD , BECAUSE WHOSOVER IS CALLING NAME OF BLOOD WILL SURELY SEE BLOOD ,
