Bombs, gunshots rock Damaturu

Damaturu, the Yobe State capital, descended into chaos with explosions and gunshots, which began at the Sabon Pegi area of the city,  Monday evening.

Residents of the city said they  panicked and locked themselves up  in their homes.

An eye witness said the attackers were attempting to take over the government house, adding that there was also an explosion at the Potiskum Prison which is in the state.

Though details of the attackers and their targets are still sketchy, JTF commander, Col. Dahiru Abdulsalam said there are reports that Boko Haram members were presently hiding out within a primary school.

He also said that his men have moved into the town and the situation has been brought under control. This has however not been independently verified.

Many residents of the town are trapped outside the town and those within have taken refuge.

Yobe state has suffered from at least two major attacks in the last seven months.

    I believe Muhammad was a false prophet because:

    All the other prophets spoke to God directly (no angels needed)

    Muhammad didn’t

    All the other prophets were able to read and write

    Muhammad was illiterate

    None of the other prophets tried to create and entirely different religion

    Muhammad – Founder of Islam

    None of the other prophets changed God’s law

    Muhammad did

    Example: God said when punishing someone, NEVER go over 40 lashes. The
    word ‘never’ means from the time it is spoken to the infinity. Muhammad
    said to punish adultery with 80 lashes. 80 > 40.

    Other prophets call God the ‘God of Truth

    Muhammad calls God the great deceiver!

    When Gabriel spoke to Mary, she was scared at first but Gabriel
    comforted her. When Muhammad ‘claimed’ to speak to Gabriel, he ran away
    screaming cover me and became suicidal.

    What is the Christian and Muslim opinion on this? Atheists, I don’t need
    your comments on you believing God doesn’t exist. Muslims, please don’t
    quote the Koran as an answer. Christians, please don’t quote the Bible
    as answer.

        Illiteracy is the major cause of all these issues, look at the way you arrogantly misquote  the quaran and changed it to suet  your agenda. That is exactly what Boko Haram are doing, black man would not progress, even the educated ones are stupid and highly selfish that is why corruption is very endemic in Africa. 
        I’m a muslim that respects the other peoples region, especially christianity because my quar’an said so, I have the highest regards for both Mary and Jesus. Can’t you see that the only region in world that has acknowledged that jesus ever existed is Islam and also believe in his miraculous  birth and all his other miracles. Please hold your peace against islam and look for the real culprits in the Nigerian killing. We don’t need your poison and vile hatred agains others, people like you are the major problem of this world, people like you caused the Rwandan  killings.

      • anonymous

        unfortunately, u claim to follow jesus when the muslims know more abt jesus than u do, when the quran narrates many miracles of jesus that u cannot find in d bible, when only  d muslims do not eat pork in line with jesus teachings,when only the muslims pray for jesus (may the peace and blessing of Allah be on him) whenever his is mentioned, when the quran gives mary the highest ranking among all women of the world, when d muslims pray exactly jesus prayed, when d muslims greet excatly jesus greeted, when only islam confirms jesus as a mighty prophet even when his brethren(isrealites) reject his faith and above all only the quran as a divine scripture has a whole chapter dedicated to the mother of jesus. what sort of love do u claim to have for jesus that transcends dis gesture .well u can ask urself who is real followers of jesus?

    • Lekanismael

      The prophet was never reported to be of any of the characters you stated, he was pious and known of good character even before people known him to be a prophet. If you don’t know before know it now, the message of the quran is the greatest miracle any man should think of, he could not read nor write and he was able to reveal what had happened in the past and prophesised what the future would be. The words of God are for those who can think and be wise with it.
      Thank God you believe in the Angels, you will know they don’t visit just an ordinary person they visit the men of God. Read quran and study its meanings to find out the truth. Muhammad never called God a Deceiver. 
      Laws can be reviewed base on changes and trend, which happens in all human life. Even in our offices, homes and society we have seen where policies are being changed because of new happenings and peoples’ deviation from frameworks or policies.
      am still advising you again, seek for knowledge and stop your propaganda.

    MUSLIMS
    ARE EVIL AND POSSESSED, DEMON POSSESSED. THEY SEEK TO SPREAD FEAR AND VIOLENCE,
    THEY ARE PAWNS OF THE DEVIL WHO FEEDS OFF OF THE FEAR AND SUFFERING THEY CREATE
    FOR POWER.

    JUST AS THEIR LEADER, MOHAMMAD, THEY USE “GOD” AS AN EXCUSE TO PREY
    ON INNOCENT PEOPLE. MOHAMMAD WAS A ROBBER AND A THIEF, HIS FOLLOWERS ARE NO
    DIFFERENT.

    IT IS NOT THE MOST HIGH GOD THEY SERVE, BUT SATAN.

    MUHAMMAD WAS A PEDOPHILE, HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH A 6 YEAR OLD AND 9 YEAR
    OLD GIRL. 

    MUHAMMAD’S CONSTANT FITS, FOAMING AT THE MOUTH AND OTHER MANIFESTATIONS
    CERTAINLY FIT IN WITH THAT IDEA. THIS IS HOW DEMON POSSESSED PEOPLE ARE KNOWN
    TO BEHAVE TODAY, AS THEY DID IN BOTH THE TIMES OF JESUS AND MUHAMMAD. THE
    HEBREW PROPHETS, AND JESUS CHRIST NEVER BEHAVED LIKE THIS. BUT ALL OVER THE
    WORLD WHERE DEMONS ARE LISTENED TO, YOU WILL FIND THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR.

    MURDER, RAPE, PLUNDER AND DESTRUCTION ARE ALL PERFECTLY FINE WITH ALLAH – IF
    DONE IN THE NAME OF ISLAM.    – Koran

    • Lekanismael

      @0a7c555cc25217146d1b18bca1b9d7e4:disqus  reference to the quran verse u quoted above which totally not correct, the statement of the verse is given thus; “It is not for a prophet to have captives (of war) until he inflicts a massacre (upon Allah’s enemies) in the land. You (i.e some Muslims) desire the commodities of this world, but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.(67) If not for a decree from Allah that preceded, you would have been touched for what you took by a great punishment.(68)So brother, I must tell you that the message you have put through his nothing but a pure lie, you have lied against your creator for quoting His Words wrong, and I pray He forgive you if you seek for His forgiveness.
      Learn Islam and stop giving false information about the religion. People like are the cause of the existence of BH by secretly damaging the image of a true religion just to win soul to your lust way of life. All what you have said about the religion are pure lies. Islam never preach violence, but righteous deed, good character and peace. It preaches equality and justice among people no matter your colour or race.
      So, please and please stop this your false statement and I will advice you to study and seek the knowledge of the religion rather than leading people astray. May God forgive you.

  • Isah

    @Ruh , you are very stupid to have said isalm is not supporting evil, why is churches the major target by the BH? why don’t they bomb mosques on Fridays? why is it that after Friday worship that is when they go out to carry attack, normal riot? You are the one hiding the truth by defending the BH over the series of bombing.
    for me, is high time, Christians take them gun for gun, sword for sword, bomb for bomb. look at how illiterate they are in the southern part of the country begging for money, and they give them help, now they stay in front of churches begging for money. enough is enough, nonsense.

    • Ruh

      Isah, May God guide you. Islam does not support evil acts, even in war Islam says you should not kill priest, women and children, it also forbids the burning of trees, buildings and religious centers. The majority of the northern muslims do not understand the actual teachings of Islam, they only study the qur’an in Arabic without understanding of its true meaning. This and  poverty compounds the problem which caused the northern youths to resort to violence in most cases. The solution to the problem is for government to integrate the Almajiri system of education with that of the modern system. Go to the north and see how these young children suffer in poverty, you will then realize the actual situation. Finally I will urge you to get a copy of the english qur’ an and study it for your self, don’t  just believe such things based on hearsay, or on  misquoted qur’an verses that were out of context. I’m sure you’ll know that a lot evil is perpetrated by people based on using the verses of the bible out of context, does that shows that christianity is bad or the bible is evil ? No.

  • Kishra

    Those who know nothing about Islam pretend that Islam causions against violence. Those people are foolish. Islam only means peace to Muslims who blindly submit. In reality Islam means war, persecution and death. The Quran says: “Fight and slay the unbelievers wherever you find them and seize them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush” (Surah 9:5), So do not be deceived by claims that Islam means peace. It means submission or surrender. Islam has always been a religion of violence and destruction.

    Islam is very clear on what is to be done to those who leave Islam. They must be killed. Every single scholar of Islam agrees on this issue. This principle is inviolable since, like almost all of Islam, it can be traced back to Muhammad.

    ADEWALE, Lekanismael and Ruh, You pretend to know about the Quran as the religion of peace, ok help me understand these passages in Koran:

    Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them. Know that God is with the righteous. Kill The disbelievers wherever we find them (9:123)

    Do not take the christians as friends (Quran 5:51)

    Mohamed is Allah’s apostale. Those who follow him are brutal to The infidels (Sura 48:29)
    Make war with the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you (Quran: 9:123 )

    Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war. Qur’an:9:5

    O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding (Quran:8:65)

    So fight them until there is no more non-Muslims and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world) Quran:8:39

    Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection (Hadith 9:4)

    I also need clarification regarding the underage marriage in islam and the 72 virgins (if heaven has not run out virgins) promised to be given at the point of arrival in paradise.

  • Kishra

    For Many centuries, Muslims were able to conceal some of their most
    outrageous teachings from the rest of the world. Their deceptions were
    hidden behind language, cultural and geographic barriers. Modern
    technology and new communication methods have made it difficult for
    Muslims to hide the dark side of Islam any longer. Muslim advocates,
    especially in the West, are now faced with the tough task of explaining
    the discrepancies between how they want Islam perceived as a tolerant,
    civil and peaceful religion ; and the realties of some of its basic
    tenets, which are quite the opposite. They’re finding it hard to
    maintain the façades and to simultaneously remain faithful to the harsh
    doctrines that are essential to the practices of authentic Islam.

    Muslim’s make every effort to suppress any who claim to follow the
    Bible. They say they believe the Bible but will not allow the Bible to
    be taught to Muslims. They cannot allow anyone who believes the Bible
    the right to declare their belief as they do. Their  persecution of
    Bible believers shows their lack of trust in their own religion to show
    any truth. If they trust the power of the Quran, why would they rely on
    physical force and intimidation.

    Mohammad is a false prophet ( Judging from the record of what Muhammad said, did and permitted )
