  • @Chrisy and @Eyi … U r sentimental fools! Christians have attacked Muslim’s during worship multitude of times including the one during Sallah celebration. This one could be just like the other ones. Boko haram are idiosyncratic bloodsucking demons, however, its not good to apportion blame to them for every attack that happen as there are lots of miscreants out there that use the present commotion the people are in to perpetrate crimes against humanity. So be watchful u idiots religious bigots.
