Boko Haram Jihadists Ambush Oil Exploration Team, Murder Dozens

Boko Haram terrorists ambushed a team of oil exploration specialists in Nigeria, killing at least 69 of them.

Boko Haram terrorists kidnapped and killed members of an oil exploration team in Nigeria.

Three of the team members were kidnapped and forced to cut a video for the jihadist group.

AFP has more (h/t The Religion of Peace and Jihad Watch):

At least 69 people died in a Boko Haram ambush of an oil exploration team in north-east Nigeria, as three men kidnapped by the jihadists made a video appeal.

Experts said the attack — Boko Haram’s bloodiest this year — underscored the persistent threat it poses, despite government claims the group is a spent force.

“So far the death toll stands at 69,” said an aid agency worker involved in the recovery of bodies after the attack in the Magumeri area of Borno state on Tuesday.

The worker, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said 19 soldiers, 33 civilian militia and 17 civilians were killed.

“The last body was recovered on Friday in the bush in the Geidam district of neighbouring Yobe state, which is several kilometres from the scene of the ambush,” he said. “It shows the victim, who had gunshot wounds, died after trekking a long distance. There could be more such victims in the bush.”

Another sourcve managed to gain enough resources, enough material, to plan ambushes targeted towards high value targets.”

This is the bloodiest attack this year by Boko Haram.

More, from AFP:

News of the rising death toll came after Boko Haram published a four-minute video in which three men identified themselves as being from the University of Maiduguri.

The trio were part of a NNPC team on a mission to find commercial quantities of oil in the Lake Chad basin.

“I want to call on the acting president professor Yemi Osinbajo to come to our rescue to meet the demand,” one of the men says in the video, which he said was shot on Friday.

He attributed the attack to the IS-supported Boko Haram faction headed by Abu Mus’ab Al-Barnawi, which has vowed to hit military and government targets.

“They have promised us that if their demands are met they will release us immediately to go back to the work we were caught doing,” the man added.

University of Maiduguri spokesman Danjuma Gambo confirmed the identities of the three kidnapped men in the video. “They are our staff but one more is yet to be accounted for,” he said.

Five members of staff from the university — two lecturers, two technologists and a driver — were killed, vice-chancellor Ibrahim Njodi said on Friday.

He told reporters the university had been hesitant to send staff with the NNPC team but had been assured about security.

Nigeria is searching for oil in the northeast to try to reduce its reliance on supplies from the Niger delta, where militant attacks have slashed production.

    So? It is not as if anything is going to get done about it, now is there?

    • Mark Steiner

      The Boko Haram threat never ended. They have reconstituted. Nigeria is an internationalist’s dream; full of oil and full of Muslim murderers to help reduce the population of the planet to the utopian 500 million..

  • Ron rockit

    I do not care what goes on in Nigeria. I just do not any more Nigerians over here.

  • famouswolf

    Think about this: this is just one incident that just barely filtered through the media screen to us. It’s heart breaking to imagine all that is most likely happening all over Africa, South Africa to Libya. The media has much to answer for, as far as I am concerned they are as bad or worse than all the Boko Haram and others tearing at each other over there, for no good reason. Also, I despise the left because they would have it the same all over the world.
    Total insanity. The human race is nothing but upright lemmings.

    Why is it the angriest most violent places in this world also happen to be where Muslims dominate?
    What does this say about islam?
    That it’s nothing more then a vegeneful death cult ruled by Satan himself.
    How is it so many are blind to this fact.

    Weird I always thought boko Haram sounded like a vacation destination and not an evil army of violent jihadists.lol…
    I wonder how many stupid people think it is just that.

  • Alleged Comment

    If they killed these people who will search for oil? These guys will have no clue. They are Negroes and they don’t even know how to use a tractor to farm.

    • OverIt

      This should give you a good indication as to how dumb such people actually are. They even killed the white farmers in South Africa who were producing all their food. Nobody is doing that now, the murderers have zero knowledge of farming or working the land, so the farms are now overgrown and unproductive. Hmm, that helped, didn’t it?

        Yes, and yet these are the very people that leftist/liberal/progressive/dimms want imported into America in droves. There is no fix for stupid.
