Due to rising anti-Christian violence in Northern Nigeria, many people have been fleeing their homes. The Boko Haram terrorist group murdered over 20 people in Adamawa state yesterday, this has led to the government placing a 24-hour curfew in the state.

Adamawa government secretary, Kobis Ari, referred to a “spate of attacks in some parts of the state” but did not immediately say whether the curfew would be extended beyond the weekend.

The attacks have been blamed on the Islamist Boko Haram group, which is believed to have killed 20 people in two separate attacks during the night from Friday into Saturday.

There have been attacks in Adamawa and the nearby state of Yobe, where hundreds fled their homes fearing military raids.

“We are afraid the soldiers will raid and burn our homes like they do in Maiduguri each time Boko Haram attack,” said local resident Amiru Umar in Adamawa state.

The Red Cross says 21 people have been killed in the town of Mubi alone.

In the latest fighting, up to 18 people were killed at a church where Christians had gathered to mourn those who had died the previous day. And in the town of Potiskum, in Yobe state, a police officer and a civilian  believed to be Christian  were killed when gun

  1. It only Allah dat will help us and dis boko aram.they are all ilitracy they dont even go to mosque.God bless Nigeria and every were else

  2. Christain and muslem we need each order, that is why GOD created us in thesame country and to spend fifty naira that is the symbol of unity GOD put in the hand of every nigeria to picture every day.

  3. Nigerians don’t know that this is what uthman dan fodio did when they came to north africa in the 18th century and now the boko haram against the Christians in the north,this is a country that accept both religion. I know this jihadist who are hiding under their cover name should know that their days are numbered,killing the saint of God they will surely see the wrought of God not many days hence,as for Nigeria God help and Bless Nigeria

  4. Some people talk just to make a headed paper meanwhile their statements are so shallow nd most atimes they re based on sentiment,their argument do’nt always have a base.THEY claimed they literate cos they re lawyers. Imagine a lawyer of NBA asking d NATIONAL HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY to set up an impeachment process for President Goodluck Jonathan.I could nw believ dt education cn serves as madness to some folks.PROTESTERS,NLC,NUT RE engineered by POLITICAL CRIMINALS WHO RE AGAINST THE GROWTH OF NIGERIA.YOU WIL BE EXPOSED ONE DAY. By SAMRICH

  5. I think Goodluck himself have now seen that he have been mislead by taken d last step before d first bcos by saying u want to cut some government official expenditure by 25% is a clear indication of where he should have start from before bouncing on d masses.
    He should have copy umar yaradua by declaring his access & cuting down his own expenditure & many more before going to public to make such declaration, may be by then he would have convince some of us who are his critics today, beter still, let d government be aware of his adviser & let him move from d position of oga to servant by paying a sudden visit to those government ministry & parastata in comfirmation of their job not jst sitting & receiving imformation from someone only, so that they will not back lash him by embesle d money.
    Thanks & God bless nigeria.

  6. All dis thing dat is happend is our leads 4rm badluck down.their are de bokko haram u se wat they did in adamawa state they are not de one that win the election.but P D P peopel dont worry dat day is coming
