Boko Haram terrorists on Sunday night executed Alhaji Mustapha Geidam, the District Head of Geidam in Yobe State.

The Boko Haram hitmen also assassinated an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Saina Alhaji Ajiya, 60, a cleric based in Konduga town near Maiduguri, the Borno State capital also in Northeast Nigeria.

Reports say that the district head, Alahaji Mustapha who was a former protocol officier to Senator Buka Abba Ibrahim was assassinated in front of his residence after he had said his prayers.

Yobe State Commissioner of Police, Tanko Lawan confirmed Mustapha’s execution saying that he was attacked and killed in front of his residence.

It was said Boko Haram had earlier sent him a letter to alert him that he had been marked for elimination and that he would be killed except he relocated from his palace.

Borno State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Samuel Tizhe also confirmed the killing of Sheikh Ajiya, saying that he was assassinated by Boko Haram hitmen who forcefully entered his residence, fired several shots into his head and chest in the presence of his family members.

No arrests have been made in connection with the killings.

On Christmas Day 2011, Boko Haram bombed worshippers at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla near Abuja and a suburb of Niger State, an attack which claimed at least 44 lives.

Yesterday, Boko Haram struck again at Christ Embassy Church in Suleja, Niger State. Five persons were injured when a bomb planted outside the church exploded.
