Boko Haram Killed 13 Christians, Factory Workers In Kano – CAN

boko haram killed 13 christians in kano

March 6, 2013 – Boko Haram Killed 13 Christians, Factory Workers In Kano State, Nigeria – CAN

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has urged the authorities to probe the gruesome killing of 13 factory workers identified as Christians at Sheka, Sharada Phase 111 in Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano, by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members.

Although CAN has started its own probe of the killings, it wants the police to unravel what really happened.

Reports said terrorists stormed the residence of the factory workers at the weekend and killed all the men except, sparing the women and children..

“The occupants of that compound are mostly factory workers, and they are Christians. The gun men who came in taxi asked if they were not observing the evening Muslim prayers; and when they confirmed their victims were Christians, they started killing them sparing only the female and children.

“After the attack, I counted at least, 13 dead bodies murdered in gruesome manner. Security agencies later came and evacuated them, while the very few of them who survived the attack fled the area and vowed never to return,” said a resident of the area.

Bishop Ransom Bello, CAN chairman in Kano has been in a very bad mood, not only because of the killings but what he described as the non-challant attitude of Kano state government over the incident.

Bello who is also the General Overseer of Calvary Life Assembly said he has handed over the matter to CAN’s national leadership, adding that with what is happening, it has become obvious that Christians are no longer safe in Kano.

“Reports of the attack reaching us disclosed that on that fateful Saturday at about 7 p.m, Muslim faithful were conducting their prayer close to the affected compound occupied by Christian families, when two taxi cabs stopped in front of the compound and the occupants, who all concealed their arms dashed into the complex and demanded to know why the residents were not part of the 7 p.m. Muslim prayer.

“They responded by telling the visitors they were Christians and so could not be part of the Muslim gathering. At that point, they separated the men from their wives and children and shot them dead on the spot after ordering the women and children into their homes. The 13th victim, who hid in a dark alley in the compound, surrendered himself, following threats by the gunmen to visit the same fate on the women and children if any man was found shielded,” Bello recounted.

“We are pained over the silence of the relevant authorities in the state, including the government on such a high profile murder. Even though we believe it is the handiwork of extremists, who do not see the reason why the Muslim North should accommodate Christians. We are really worried that nobody from the government has deemed it right to console the family of those that were killed,” Bello lamented.

He added that, “government should show more concern, like it has always done when Muslims are affected; I have not seen that in the case of Christians—that 13 Christians were killed in one straight attack and nothing is heard from the government reflects selective justice because we are aware of compensation paid to Muslim families in situations of this nature.”

Kano state Commissioner of Police, Musa Daura confirmed the incident, saying that a special investigative team has already been dispatched to fish out the killers of the 13 men.

Daura who described the incident as unfortunate, embarrassing and barbaric, urged Kano residents to cooperate with security agencies by giving useful information on crime, terrorist activities and strange movement within their areas.

      Forget the curse. You are a muslim and could equally be part of them. If this not true, then you should be able to cooperate with security forces with the little experience you had as an alamajeri! What were u taught then? What was ur modus operandi then? You can help the police force. DO IT AND SAVE YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES!!!

    In John 16 v 2 Christ Jesus said you will expelled from the Church and time will come when anyone who kills you will think that by doing this he is serving God .and in John 16v4 He said, but I have told u this,so that when the time comes for them to do these things, you will remember that I told you. May the Word of God be as it’s written in Jesus name .amen

    The difference is clear. See their victims & themselves, even in sorrow their victims body looks better & well nourished & cared for than they. They remain men of the jungle & can never co-habit wit human being.They can’t sleep well, hurry looking, unkempt, cursed seed of their mothers, animals in thoughts & behaviours. Lost the good things of life & have no future here in this present age & in that which is to come. Hell candidate where their worm dieth not & the fire is not quenched forever & ever world without end.

    Bokoharam is a seed from the Muslim World Order. Goodluck E. Jonathan is sick mentally, and ill as a human. Christians should get ready for the WAR drums rythming from the dark World of the… Freedom can only come through WAR. If you dearly love your life then you SHALL loss it. Let us get ready to dinner with the Devil. But remember that victory is ours. To die is Heaven, while to live is for Christ. The problem Christians are having is accumulation of wealth in earth. Let us get ready to die so that our generation will be free. Let us go back home. It will be a honour if I die for the New Nation that will spring up soonest… I wish to be a commander in that horrible battle field… Now is that time. Let’s us shout FREEDOM!!! BOKOHARAM CAN NEVER FEED ON OUR BLOOD AGAIN!!! A CHRISTIAN-BOKOHARAM IS BROODING NOW!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!! THERE IS NO NIGERIA IN THE FUTURE…
