Boko Haram Attacks Another Nigerian School, Slaughters Students

Apparently Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram has thrown their hat in the ring for the most despicable human beings on the planet award ...challenging incumbent, the Taliban.

Another Nigerian school.  Another mound of dead kids.  Another "victory" for Mohammed.

The story comes from Times of India.

Nigerian Islamists attack school, kill students

KANO (Nigeria): Suspected Boko Haram Islamists on Tuesday opened fire on secondary school students as they slept in a dormitory in Nigeria's troubled northeastern Yobe state, the military said.

Casualty figures from the attack in the town of Buni Yadi, roughly 60km (40 miles) from the state capital Damaturu, were not immediately available but scores of students have been killed in similar attacks in the state last year.

The military spokesman in Yobe, Lazarus Eli, said the raid occurred at 2am (0100 GMT) at the town's Federal Government College, a school for students aged 11 to 18.

The gunmen "opened fire on student hostels", Eli said. "Details are still sketchy due to lack of telephone access and it is still not clear how many students were affected in the attack", he added.

The name Boko Haram means "Western education is forbidden" and the Islamist rebels have carried out waves of attacks at schools across the north during their four-and-a-half year insurgency.

At least 40 students were killed in September at an agriculture training college in the Yobe town of Gujba after Boko Haram gunmen stormed a series of dorms in the middle of the night and sprayed gunfire on sleeping students.

Yobe is one of three northeastern states which was placed under emergency rule in May last year when the military launched a massive operation to crush the Boko Haram uprising.

More than 1,000 people have been killed in the region since the emergency measures were imposed, despite the enhanced military presence.

Boko Haram, declared a terrorist organisation by Nigeria and the United States, has said it is fighting to create an Islamic state in Nigeria's "Muslim" north.

Time for chirstian Soldiers to UNITE, to track down Boko Haram inside or outside of Cameroon, and kill then dead . Hunt them til all are finished off. DO not bury them, let them rot. When Christians arm themselves and strike back where ever they are find Boko bullies, kill as required and as often as required. Rid this universe of these perverse killers.
