Al Ahram reported:

Suspected members of the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram set fire to churches and border posts in north-eastern Nigeria on Sunday, residents said, but it was not immediately known if there were casualties.

Around 50 gunmen in cars and on motorcycles carried out the attacks on three churches and border posts with neighbouring Cameroon, opening fire on police and chanting Allahu Akbar, (God is Greatest), residents said.

Among the security posts burned were offices for immigration, customs and the secret police and a quarantine building in the city of Gamboru Ngala, about 140 kilometres (80 miles) from the Boko Haram stronghold in Maiduguri.

“The gunmen believed to be Boko Haram were around 50 in number and came in cars and on motorcycles around 8:30 am and attacked the security offices at the border posts, burning them,” resident Modugana Ibrahim told AFP.

“They opened fire on the security personnel but it is hard to say if anybody was hurt or killed,” Ibrahim said.

Another resident, Hamidu Ahmad, said the gunmen went into town “chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and burnt down the divisional police station and three churches”.

    No words from Obama or Clinton? If these were mosques you dame sight believe Obama and Clinton would be on the tube with scathing words. But Christians being ethnically cleansed is not what is on their radar. Christians bad, Islamists good.

    We can deduct form all this all these years that Obama has more sympathies with the Islamists than with the Christian world.

    Realizing fully that I am unfamiliar with the ins and outs of Nigerian life, but I would think that with this clear pattern of muslim behavior, attacking churches every Sunday, those being attacked would begin to arm themselves and protect themselves in efforts to thwart the attack.

    One of the many fruits of William Wilberforce’s life long crusade against the slave trade was that Samuel Ajayi Crowther, who was born in 1807 (the year Great Britain abolished the slave trade) in Yorubaland (modern Western Nigeria) was rescued by a British naval squadron. When Samuel was just thirteen years old, he was captured by Muslim slave traders for transport across the Atlantic, but rescued by the Navy. Samuel received an education in Sierra Leone, where he was converted to Christ, and after further education in England he was ordained as a minister of the Church of England for service with the Church Missionary Society.

    Samuel participated in the expedition up the Niger River Valley to overcome the ravages of the slave industry still entrenched there. Of the 145 Europeans on that expedition, 130 were struck down with Malaria, and 40 died. Yet the expedition succeeded in establishing a Missionary Center at Fourah Bay for training liberated slaves to evangelise West Africa. It was built on the very place where a slave market had once stood. The rafters of the roof were made almost entirely from the masts of old slave ships.

    Samuel Crowther was one of the first four students to graduate from Fourah Bay’s College, Sub-Saharan Africa’s first university. In 1864, Samuel Crowther was ordained as the first African Bishop of the Church of England in an overflowing Canterbury cathedral. Today there are eighteen times more Anglicans worshipping in church every Sunday in Nigeria than there are in Great Britain.]
