Nigeria: Islamist terror strikes Christians again
At least ten persons were killed in a village in northeastern Nigeria following an attack by a group of armed men on a marketplace and a church. Following the attack, the group was able to elude capture by fleeing to Cameroon, according to local police reports. The attack occurred on May 5 in a rural village called Njilang in Adamawa State in an area disputed by Islamist terrorists known as Boko Haram and Nigerian government forces.
Police spokesman Mohammed Ibrahim informed the press "Armed men opened fire on the town's marketplace, where they killed six persons, and then went to the church where they opened fire again and killed another four." At least nine other persons were wounded in the assault and were transferred to treatment at a local hospital.
Ibrahim did not identify the group responsible for the attack, but it is in an area where Boko Haram, and one of its branches known as Amaru - which has been linked to the al-Qaeda terrorist network - has been operating. The group has focused its attacks on Nigerian security forces, Christian churches, and moderate Muslim religious leaders.
