Boko Haram Islamic terror group kills 2000

The tough Islamists of Boko Haram, scared of getting shot at by real soldiers have killed 2000 in Nigeria, mostly women and children.

Hundreds of bodies — too many to count — remain strewn in the bush in Nigeria from an Islamic extremist attack that Amnesty International suggested Friday is the “deadliest massacre” in the history of Boko Haram.

Mike Omeri, the government spokesman on the insurgency, said fighting continued Friday for Baga, a town on the border with Chad where insurgents seized a key military base on Jan. 3 and attacked again on Wednesday.

“Security forces have responded rapidly, and have deployed significant military assets and conducted airstrikes against militant targets,” Omeri said in a statement.

District head Baba Abba Hassan said most victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when insurgents drove into Baga, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents. 

“The human carnage perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists in Baga was enormous,” Muhammad Abba Gava, a spokesman for poorly armed civilians in a defense group that fights Boko Haram, told The Associated Press.

He said the civilian fighters gave up on trying to count all the bodies. “No one could attend to the corpses and even the seriously injured ones who may have died by now,” Gava said.

An Amnesty International statement said there are reports the town was razed and as many as 2,000 people killed.

If true, “this marks a disturbing and bloody escalation of Boko Haram’s ongoing onslaught,” said Daniel Eyre, Nigeria researcher for Amnesty International.

It seems these lone wolf murderers are now hunting in packs of lone wolves.

The attacks are escalating, the assault on everyone who is not a Muslim is now a war, and the bastards are even killing their own in places like Syria and Iraq if they are not in the right ‘kind’ of Islam.

I well remember Helen Clark just a few short years ago intoning that ‘we’ live in a ‘benign strategic environment’.

Not so benign now it it?

    Boko Haram are underhanded evil savage maggots who are preying on vulnerable
    I rarely call names but I really am at a loss to say anything else that can really befit my feelings and thoughts of their style

    • bristol

      Boko Haram, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Nusra Front, Taliban, Al-Shabab. Hmm, wonder if there’s a common denominator here?

      • Builder

        The religion of peace?

      • Simply a Coalition of Lone Wolves. Move along, people. Nothing to see here …..

  • Salacious Crumb

    Great to see the UN taking firm and decisive action on this. Chalk up another victory of interventional justice to go along with Rwanda and Serbia

    • Whafe

      Yep, hard for a jellyfish to get a backbone… The UN are an absolute waste of space in this….

      • conwaycaptain

        If any country was asked to contribute to an armed force to put these buggers down it would be the usual countries. US,UK,France,Canada,NZ,Aus.
        The Arab, S American and African countries would run a mile. Why doesn’t China put their hand up and what about the Indians???

        • Nechtan

          The old bogie of colonialism would raise its head, any force would have to be predominately non western.

        • Bobb

          Indians? Bows and arrows are no use against terrorists CC

    So benign that our MSM are scared of publishing cartoons. So benign that they are no doubt congratulating themselves today on their cowardice after reading of the firebombing of the German newspaper who had the balls to publish the cartoons. They foolishly think that by censoring and suppressing the news and by refusing to stand up for freedom of the press they will be spared. At the best they can hope for total state control of their newspapers once New Zealand becomes an Islamic state. At worst all newspapers will be closed. They either stand in true solidarity with Charlie Hebdo now or they die on their knees like cowards. New Media are the true media now. Like journalists of old they stand up to oppression and fearlessly tell the truth.

      Aux Armes Citoyenne!!!

        True that CC WO is a leading weapon to the fearless of truth in NZ in upholding freedom of expression

        • conwaycaptain

          Been reading Stuff and NZH (was your mouth out CC) and there is news there we saw on WO 1-3 days ago.
          They are cowards. The NZH USED to be the paper of record for NZ and stood up and was counted. Now it is a shambling shadow of a glorious past run by mediocre staff and run by an Editor who would PISS Himself if he had to stick his head above the parapet.

  • Odd Ball

    It’s a bit of a stretch to align Clarks ‘benign strategic environment’ statement with whats happening thousands of miles away in another country, however, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be prepared and act proactively to prevent problems occurring in NZ. NZ still has time, don’t waste it.

    killing children, is this to ensure a ready supply of virgins in paradise. Hang on if those killed are non believers they won’t be in paradise, now there’s a problem.

  • Eiselmann

    Wonder what those children did to warrant being randomly attacked and killed in the name of allah by random nutjobs who have nothing to do with real Islam….that must have been some provocation indeed…wanting for Derek Fox and his mates to condemn the victims

  • North Shore Sheila

    What I can’t understand – is where are they (particularly the Nigerians) getting the money for all the ammunitions?

    • Probably by selling looted oil. It is a pity we can’t name those that buy it – thereby funding this slaughter!

      • Isherman

        Along with good old bank robbery, and of course kidnap for ransom. In 2013 they got 3 million for one French family alone.

          Not to mention the 200 Chibok school girls they sold into slavery recently.

      Our old M16s were sold (by Ross Meurant) to Africa in the nineties. Maybe places like us is where they get them?
