Boko Haram reportedly takes over Bara town

While it's still not clear if Boko Haram has taken control of Borno's second biggest city, Bama, (too many conflicting reports) there are reports now that they have taken control of the smaller town of Bara, which is halfway between Maiduguri and Abuja.

Reuters reports that Boko Haram took over Bara town without firing a shot or killing anyone. A source said the militants entered the town without any resistance from any security forces who are not stationed anywhere in the small town, and went about trying to convince people to join their cause.


From Reuters
Boko Haram's attacks appear to have shifted focus in recent weeks away from creating mayhem to taking ground and holding it, a strategy analysts say could be inspired by the Islamic State's example of declaring a caliphate in Syria and Iraq.
Last month, the insurgents captured the remote farming town of Gwoza, along the Cameroon border, during heavy fighting. Their leader Abubakar Shekau declared in a video that the town was now "Muslim territory".
Boko Haram militants have driven more than many people from Bama amid fierce fighting.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in Borno state said on Wednesday that 26, 391 displaced had so far been registered from the town. "The number is growing by the hour," its spokesman Abdulkadir Ibrahim said.

AND THERE GOES THE RELIGION OF WICKEDNESS AGAIN. ISLAM IS SIMPLY "KILL AND SHED AS MANY BLOOD AS YOU CAN". OF COURSE THE FOUNDER OF ISLAM ALSO KILLED WHICH IS WHY HIS FOLLOWERS ARE JUSTIFIED TO KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE. BUT LISTEN YOU TERRORISTS, YOUR TIME IS UP! YOU ALL WILL BE CONSUMED IN EVERLASTING FIRE. AS FOR THE MODERATE MUSLIMS (IF THERE ARE SUCH BECAUSE I REALLY DOUBT THERE ARE MODERATE MUSLIMS), THIS IS YOUR TIME TO CONVERT FROM THAT SATANIC RELIGION AND EMBRACE ANY OTHER RELIGION OF YOUR CHOICE. C'MON MURDERERS, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF RELIGION AT YOUR DISPOSAL, LEAVE ISLAM AND BECOME A NORMAL HUMAN BEING INSTEAD OF ALWAYS THINKING OF WHO TO KILL. SOME OF YOU MUSLIMS ON LIB WILL EVEN WANT TO KILL ME IF YOU KNOW WHO I AM. BUT PHEW, YOU HAVE FAILED!!! I AM VERY FAR FROM YOU GUYS. SO IF YOU CAN'T CONTROL YOUR THIRST FOR HUMAN BLOOD, LOOK FOR A CHICKEN OR GOAT(SHOULDN'T BE A HUMAN BEING PLEASE) TO KILL IN ORDER TO SATISFY YOUR BLOOD THIRST. THANK YOU!!!

Half way between maiduguri and Abuja? This goes to show you that this report is false. Linda I suggest you do some research before you copy and paste. Maiduguri and Abuja don't share borders.

The best thing is for Nigeria to divide. Let the northerners go and govern themselves. These people are animals in human clothings. They don't deserve to live among humans.

kappawoods kappa said...

Arewa should take the north; odudua the west and biafra the east. We can not last any longer as a country. These extremists shouldn't identify with any other region. Nigeria is a failed state, let's encourage a slit. Let he who have ears hear.

God please come down and fight this battle for us your people. we all know you are seeing all that is happening and must have seen the ones that are about to happen too. Lord all we ask is for your divine intervention, Amen.

i also remember our brothers and sisters especially the little ones (babies) whom their parents have lost as a result of the crisis in the north and all who have lost their lives so far, that God In his infinite mercies grant them eternal rest with him in his kingdom IJN....

God please help us wipe out this evil beasts. Amen.

why the hell are we talking about prayers? Damn!! Foolishness has eaten deep into the nigerians. The white man brought a religion to calm your minds while they loot every black mans treasury. we still hold strong to the foolish lies and talks of there is God.
If Isarel sit and have pple saying there is God i wonder what will become of them.

If u are a christian and u believe that God is same ystrdy, today and forever, then think of how he gave the Israelite the promise land.

There will always be blood shed to stop the BH madness. brace ur self for war. take care of your business and let the priest and preachers raise up their arms like Moses did, so we wuld not loose this war.
