The devout Muslim terror group, Boko Haram, has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (Obama’s JV team).

“Female suicide bombers kill over 60 people in northeast Nigeria: officials,”
Reuters, February 10, 2016:

Two female suicide bombers killed more than 60 people at a camp for people displaced by an insurgency of the jihadist Boko Haram group in the northeast Nigerian town of Dikwa, military and emergency officials said on Wednesday.

The attack occurred 85 km (50 miles) outside the capital of Borno state, centre of the seven-year insurgency, they said. It took place on Tuesday, but a breakdown in the telephone system prevented the incident being made public earlier.

The two female suicide bombers sneaked into an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp and detonated themselves in the middle of it, emergency officials and the military source said.

The chairman of the State Emergency Management Agency, Satomi Ahmad, added that 78 people were injured.

No group claimed responsibility but the attack bore the hallmarks of Boko Haram, which has frequently used female bombers and even children to hit targets.

The militant group has recently increased the frequency and deadliness of attacks with three at the end of January. At least 65 people were killed outside Borno state capital Maiduguri on Jan. 31.

Since it lost territory to a government counter-offensive last year, Boko Haram has reverted to hit-and-run attacks on villages and suicide bombings at places of worship or markets.

Boko Haram has only rarely targeted camps housing people displaced by the conflict and Tuesday’s attack was the first one to kill victims in Borno state.

The military said militants made one abortive attempt on a camp on the outskirts of Maiduguri on Jan. 31. Boko Haram hit a Nigerian IDP camp for the first time last September, in the Adamawa state capital of Yola.

    This is the true face of islam, the physical manifestation of the lying smirking gaze of the arrogant “chosen people” of the demon.

    This is why even their women should not be let in. Besides they can hide and pack more explosives under their Burksas for maximum murders.

    I don’t know the story of these two women, probably the same arrogance, abuse, and mistreatment that is normal in the traditional Muslim household that has left them without the ability to question or think for themselves. But the ones who sent them have no feeling, no conscience or mercy.

      Anyone who is being abused for along period of time can be pushed over the edge into madness. That is surely what happens to muslim women. A lot of the men are sexually abused as little boys. And so islam as a religious system is a huge trap for all the ” adherents”. If yo try to run you can get killed as an apostate. If you try to argue you can get killed. If you’re female and you get raped you get stoned to death. and the rules of islamic trap goes on and on. The only way to get these people out of this trap is to get them out of the quran or isolate them from civilized culture, because insanity is contagious. Misery loves company and so they want us to join them in their festering trap.

        Yes, Its a terrible business all around and we’re just helpless to change it all.

  • They were avoiding being sex-slaves.

    Are you going to listen to someone “claim responsibility”? The suicide bombers can’t tell you the real reason.

  • Judi

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the two female suicide bombers were part of the group kidnapped by Boko Haram last year.

      I was thinking the same thing, but we’ll never know, there isn’t enough corpse left to identify.

    The constant targeting of Christians in Nigeria breaks my heart. I think Pres. Buhari has stated that Boko Haram has been significantly contained now, and is only going after soft targets. I guess that means people and villages. These people need help and prayers. Voice of the Persecuted is one small ministry that has local contacts who are able to deliver aid.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    More than 2000 Nigerian Christians have been slaughtered by muslums in Nigeria over the last 10 years. The current president of Nigeria is a f’ing muslum, which I’m sure makes the Christians there feel just that much safer.
