Boko Haram Kill 5 Igbo Traders For Failing To Recite Quran

The five people believed to be Igbo traders were said to have been shot dead at Madala Market on Thursday Night between 7 – 8pm.

Our correspondent reliably gathered that the yet to be identified gunmen were said to have stormed the Madala market and made straight to a shop believed to be that of some Igbo traders and ordered them to recite the Holy Quran of which they could not.

The gunmen who were not satisfied with the development opened fire on the five people at close range leaving them dead immediately.

An alarm which was raised by other traders close to the shop where the five people were killed attracted passers by who sent a distress call to the Divisional Police Officer Suleja where a detachment of armed police were drafted to the scene.

However, before the police men could arrive the spot, the gunmen had already fled, leaving their casualties in their own blood.

The five casualties were later identified as John Kalu, Oliver Ezemah, Uche Nguweze, Sunday Emmanuel while fifth casualty was yet to be identified as at the time of going to press.

The identity of the gunmen are yet to be ascertained by people of the town and even the police who have swung into investigation.

An eye witness account told our correspondent no valuables were removed from the shop of the victims after they might have been gun down which invariably confirms that the gunmen were not armed robbers but suspected to be Boko Haram sect members.

  • Those who do evil, will evil return. One cannot force their religion on another. If Islam is a peaceful religion as they claim, then seek peace, not destruction. The Lord will bring confusion into the enemy’s camp. Stop killing and destroying innocent lives. Jesus came to save the lost. Surrender your life to Jesus Christ today and stop the killing.

  • It is getting clearer by the day that northern and southern Nigeria can’t live as one.
    Since Jonathan took that seat which is the north’s “crude oil”,the rate of criminal acts by the boko haram sect has become alarming.
    It may not be a good thing to happen in Jonathan’s regime,but the best thing to happen to this country right now is division.
    Let there be northern and southern Nigeria. The country should be divided according to Jonathan’s results in the presidential poll.

  • Mek we divide dey no gree, mek we live in peace dey no gree. Na wetin?. When ever I think about the problems of this country, I feel like weeping! May be I ‘ll go about killing those who can’t recite the bible

  • Something amuse me when somebody is killed and you that kills go to heaven.
    Dont we think that someone is getting mad about religion preaching.
    Boko hararm is not a do or die affair, our security services are compromised.Based on the 20/6/11 dailys which reported that they have there members in all the security outfits and would strrike whenever they want.only the rich is protected now in nigeria.when a trial is fixed for some who stole #20,000 and someone who stole billions is out there sponsoring boko haram ,because the money is too much and has nothing to loose.Blame the northern leaders for making there people suffer,cause they dont value education only them that are educated wants to remain on top.Tank allah that some of them that understands the meaning of education are sending there children to school.Because if they dont have anybody to sponsor for political gains they will bring there own children to come and die for them.Those co-opted you that education is a sin have there children in the best school oversea and your giving guns and arrow to go and die for no reason or kill if your not caught.

  • These re bible fufillments, there is nothing gov’t, pastor, nor mallam can do abt dis situation, These re sign’s of END TIME. It is written in d bible dat nations will rise against nation, and dat is wat is hapenin nw.

  • A matter of killing should not be a thing for joke as a matter of facts Ibo s have suffered a great deal in the hands Nigerians especially the north. I think by now people should be wise,Nobody is second class in this country This so called boko haram leaves among the north’s but be course their targets are well informed to their sponsors(he who pays the piper dictates the tune) Just like others I enjoy the government to leave up to their oath (an easy lies the head that wears the crown) else Ibo-ha ram,Yoruba-ha ram….and other ha rams may follow

  • Anyway, the day the retaliatory bombings and killings will start, the north will know that it will not take 10hrs to overun them. I am not joking. I know ahat I am saying. Madness is sweet when it is suffered by one group. No body has the perogative to violence

  • u said dat ur group dos’t kill an individual but group of people,wat was d difference? u are insane and let me tell u very soon ur power shall reject u and d people behind dis group shall be kill by ur own hand.u will neva kwn peace 4 d rest of days,AMEN

  • I believe this is a sponsored site designed principally to destabilize this Country, Nigeria. Readers attention is hereby drawn to note that:
    i. It is clearly stated in the Qur’an (The Holy Book off ALL Muslims) that “THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION”. So why should any TRUE Muslim force some one to recite any portion of a book one is totally ignorant of?
    ii. In the same vein, in Christianity, “THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION”. So why should any TRUE Christian force a Muslim to recite any portion of a book he/she is ignorant of?
    iii. 5 people are said to have been massacred in cold blood without an eye witness, yet this site has the audacity, wherewithal and clear intention to cause more havoc to Nigeria through narrating what transpired before the killings. Where was the writer at that material time? Unless, of course, he was part of the crime, nobody would be anywhere near the source of gun shots!
    iv. Readers and Security Agents to note please. Publishers of unauthenticated stories aimed at destabilizing Nigeria, operating from within or abroad, should be brought to book.
