Nigerian Islamists Shoot 15 Dead at Market for Selling Pig & Monkey Meat

Nigerian Islamists shot dead 15 hunters at a market on Monday for selling pig and monkey meat.
Reuters reported:

In the deadliest attack, late on Monday, gunmen opened fire at a market in the town of Damboa, targeting local hunters who sell bush meat from animals such as monkeys and pigs, which strict Muslims are forbidden to eat, a local official said.

“Gunmen suspected to be members of BH (Islamist sect Boko Haram) came to the town market and shot dead 13 local hunters on the spot while five others died from their injuries at the hospital,” Alhaji Abba Ahmed said. “They came to the market in a Volkswagen Golf car, carried out the operation and left.”

In a separate attack in the north’s biggest city of Kano, some 500 km (310 miles) west of Damboa, on Tuesday, suspected Boko Haram members riding on motorbikes shot dead five people playing an outdoor board game, witnesses and a hospital source who received the bodies said. Two others were wounded.

Damboa is in the remote northeast, the sect’s heartland near the borders with Niger, Cameroon and Chad.

    Looks like those BH guys misunderstood when the Preezy o’the United Steezy said that “al-Kayda [sic on purpose] is on the run.”

    They probably thought he said al-Kayda is running amock. / sarc off

    Obama will almost certainly, almost immediately dispatch 100-200 logistics support specialists to the area to see to it that Niger’s F15 aircraft are refueled when needed.

    Islamic Fascists to the core; the scenario is always the same (kill, maim, enslave). Yet, Obama loves it and he even made sure that Kenya had a Constitution that supports Sharia.

    It presents a strange dichotomy for the POTUS. He supports Islamic Fascists and therefore their methods, but professes to uphold the Constitution of the US. He is really a complex guy, at least that’s what the talking heads who support him would have us think.

    Those, who think for themselves, have come to another all together different conclusion.

    If you live in a country where pork is forbidden, then where did the market people get the pig meat/ I bet there isn’t a single pig farm in Israel. Just sayin’.
    Oh, well, the more they kill each other the less there are of them.

    The fascists in Nigeria are killing Christians on a daily basis. There is no peace with Islam, just broken pieces.

    Islam = death

    Just a few years ago, Nigeria was evenly divided between Christians and Muslims, but more recently Nigerian Islamic Fascists have been murdering and maiming Christians at an alarming rate. (It is one of their ways of changing the demographics.)

    A new study says that the Muslim population in Nigeria is projected to increase by more than 50% in 2030, from about 76 million in 2010 to about 117 million in 2030. (They have lots of babies, and their women have them at a younger age.)

    It is an informative study, and you can read the highlights here:

    It’s not just in Nigeria.

    Here is what they do in the Netherlands:

  • i’m so glad the star-ledger told me islam is the religion of peace i might have gotten the wrong idea.

  • iconoclast

    Things will not change until after we start reading of dead Islamists hunted down and killed all over the world. Why do Nigerian Christians put up with this without responding?

  • more black africans murdered and not a word from bono or sting or little steven and the american civil rights leaders either. they were so concerned about blacks in south africa. don’t look now boys but your hypocrisy slip is showing.

    What?!! Personally I draw the line at monkey smoked bacon. Pork chimps should be banned.

    At least they’re dealing with things in an extremely violent way. They got that going for ’em.

    Can we finally stop pretending that the problem is only “radical Islam” (a gross redundancy), and stop pretending that most Muslims are peace-loving and benevolent?

    The “moderate Muslims” that our phony-baloney politicians love so much are actually the ones who no longer follow their faith, but are too afraid to say so. I’d certainly be afraid, knowing that the penalty for apostasy involves being made a head shorter.

    Did I miss the outrage in the Muslim community over this and other atrocities?

    Christians need to educate themselves about Islam so they can do a better job of countering the liberal propaganda that Islam is no worse than Christianity. Don’t bother citing Koran verses because there is an army of liberal trolls who make it their mission to reply to that with Bible verses.
    Muslims kill at will with no regard for their victims because under Islam only Allah can decide who is worthy of paradise. In other words, the victim is not their problem. That’s why they can kill babies, little children, anyone they see as a threat to Islam. A Muslim man can lie, cheat, steal, and kill and it’s all allowed as long as it’s done in defense of Islam. And EVERYTHING is threat to Islam if that individual Muslim decides it is. It’s not just allowed, it’s a duty.
    Liberal defenders of Islam use the Bible to counter Islamic philosophy and too many Christians fall for it and adopt a defensive posture. Stop doing that. Even the most annoying, busy body Christian wants to save your soul so that when you do die you will go to heaven. Muslims will kill you and let Allah deal with you after you’re dead.
