Nigeria: Muslims slaughter 400-500 Christians in latest Jos crisis (updated)

Muslim mass slaughter of mainly Christians. This report implicates the OIC – presumably the same freedom-sapping Islamists to whom Barack Obama just appointed a terrorist-defending Special Envoy.

via allAfrica.com: Nigeria: 400 Killed in Fresh Jos Crisis.

Jos — The government has since called for the arrest of Alhaji Saleh Bayeri, former executive secretary, Muslim Welfare Board and State Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Rearers Association, accusing him of “issuing threats and inciting Fulani people against the Berom People which is unfortunate.”The attack is coming at a time the Christian community in the state raised alarm over reports of renewed suicide attacks being planned for some selected churches in the state, as contained in a widely circulated documents yesterday.

A reliable government source told Daily Champion yesterday on phone that the attackers invaded the villages in the wee hours of the morning.

Asked about the casualty figures, the source said more than 400 were massacred in the attack. He said the attackers invaded the village from Bauchi State.

As at the time of filling this report, the morgue of the state specialist hospital where some of the corpses were deposited was filled to the brim. Chief Medical Director, Dr. Pam Dantong, who conducted journalists round the place, said the injured are receiving treatment in the institution.

Meanwhile, a document was circulated in churches during yesterday’s service warning the congregation of planned suicide attacks on selected churches by 15 almajiris, who were said to have agreed to volunteer on suicide missions to benefit after being promised N20m gift each.

The document, entitled, “unanimous decision of Muslim Ummah in Northern Nigeria towards the crisis in Plateau State,” was not signed or dated, but has as one Alhaji Sanusi Ibrahim Das as conveyor.

Those who saw the contents of the document which told our correspondent that the Islamic Bank and the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC), would bank role the mission, even as part payment was said to have been made to the volunteers.

Commenting on the attack, the state Commissioner of Information and Communication, Hon. Gregory Yenlong, regretted that it was a serious security challenge to the government and that government was reviewing its security machinery.

An uneasy calm prevailed in Plateau state, Nigeria, Monday following the killing of hundreds of Christians early Sunday morning in three farming villages near Jos by ethnic Fulani Muslims.

The mostly ethnic Berom victims included many women and children killed with machetes by rampaging Fulani herdsmen. About 75 houses were also burned.

State Information Commissioner Gregory Yenlong confirmed that about 500 persons were killed in the attacks, which took place mainly in Dogo Nahawa, Zot and Rastat villages.

“We were woken up by gunshots in the middle of the night, and before we knew what was happening, our houses were torched and they started hacking down people” survivor Musa Gyang told media.

Update: More background on the situation in Jos, Nigeria from this Elites Tv report:

In Jos, conflict seems to recur in ever-narrowing cycles: deadly riots rocked the city in 1994, 2001, 2008 and –not even two months ago– in January 2010. The current conflict is said to have started in reprisal for the destruction that occurred in January — there have been reports of children and the elderly being particularly targeted by roving gangs armed with guns and machetes.

Like the previous riots, the current conflict in Jos has been fought along sectarian lines – Jos lies on the border between Nigeria’s Muslim-majority North and Christian-majority South. Access to land and resources is often determined by whether one is a native, or “indigene”, of the historically Christian city, or a “settler” from elsewhere (“settlers” are most often Muslims from the North; see a Human Rights Watch report on the subject here for more on the subject).

Many sources have placed the death toll in the hundreds: Al-Jazeera and the BBC both reported more than 500 casualties, although one government source put the figure at 55 official deaths. Quick burials make it difficult to accurately assess the total dead, while political considerations also lead to discrepancies in the numbers. Shuaibu Mohammed of Reuters gives one explanation:

Death tolls have been highly politicised in previous outbreaks of unrest in central Nigeria, with various factions accused of either exaggerating the figures for political ends or downplaying them to try to douse the risk of reprisals.

In the blogosphere, horror, shame and empathy were the prevalent emotions. Linda Ikeji posted a photo on her blog which graphically displayed the carnage. She wrote:

NO, I won’t take the picture down. This is our shame and failure as a country. Let’s all stare at it!

Latest: Suspects plead not guilty to charges

Twenty suspects were arraigned at the Federal High Court in Jos on Thursday over their alleged involvement in the killing of about 500 villagers in Dogo-Nahawa, Zot, and Rassat last month, a massacre that raised tension coming after that of January this year, not to mention the one of November 2008.

They face three counts of unlawful possession of fire arms, terrorism, and unlawful assembly.

  1. A. Ode… Your last phrase was as accurate a any muslim could put it… We came to this world naked and as so we shall return, but Allah says it more accurately… ‘Indeed from Allah have we come, and to Him is our return’..
    Now u spoke about persecution.. I don’t know wat news u watch, but everytime a news channel broadcasts EVERYDAY, we must hear and see news of innocent muslims bein masscred.. Be it drones, airstrikes, torture,e.t.c.. Jesus is beloved to any1 who truly cals himself muslim.. To hate or deny Jesus is to hate or deny one’s faith.. The only diff. Between us and u is we don’t WORSHIP him but we respect both him and his teachings.. He has d power over watever GOD ordains.. His birth was a sign to unbelievers not divine conception.. If we were to accept d dogma dat Jesus was born without intercourse and as such is ‘God’ or the ‘Son of God’, then we would be forced to conclude dat seein as how Jesus stil needed a female host to b brought into the world, he should be ‘vice-God’ and seein as how Adam needed not a single medium to b brought to this world, he should b the God more worthy of worship.. In a nutshell, if we accept d doctrine of today’s ‘bible’ , then Adam is in a better position to be worshipped and/or ordained God and/or the son of God.. It’s heart wrenching to know dat d True Holy Bible is hidden from d public and all u are left with are screenplays from minds of drunken fascists… Jesus PBUH is one of Allah’s grtst prophets, and we muslims love and respect both he and his teachings.. The true teachings.. So A. Ode my friend.. In d end your true savior’s not Jesus Christ bt rather, it’s d faith that’s in dat piece of flesh concealed beneath your chest… The faith that God is not a bearer of chldrn nor was he born, and that there is only 1 God, the creator of al the prophets, from Adam, down to Moses, Jesus and Muhammed(may peace b upon them all)

  2. the end of the road has come for all jihadist! We are now up against any force to retaliate until they(the muslims) go back to their fucking origin.
    Go host Jihad in Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina , kano and the likes and NOT PLATEAU!
    BAstards!!!

  3. they lie that ISLAM preaches peace and yet preach that Prophet Mohammed (XYZ) or whatever, said that Allah said that a ‘muslim cannot leave with someone who is not a muslim’, that they are kafuri
    yet , they still say let us sustain peace and live as one. HOW? with a KAFURYou’all muslims will be dammed at what is comming your way!!!

  4. Time to talk is over. living with Muslems is like living with Vampires. In my place we dont negotiate with terrorist,we eliminate them and eat them. If Islam take one of your own, destroy as many as u can. Islam is the world’s enemy. They will not stop but u can stop them, bcos they are mortal. “Gentility of a christian is a sign of anyodice but a respect for life”. U can start now. Kill them all, else they will kill u.

  5. pls let d world be in peace and unity “According to our noble father Karl Marx as he said I quote “Religion serves as the opium of the Masses ”
    lets us all unit together and live in love and unity .

  7. wake-up all ye people. the main problem of the country is the so call region fellower.plz i want to ask question. how does this religion come to nigeria?is it not this fuckin white men that enslave us and ignorant of our for father,they nrought the region to put confusion to our country.some idiot said that bible was writing in hebrew,so. what about quaran it was writin in arab, did anybody know what they write there is it not the lack of education then that make us believe what they say and we acept it from generation till today.please wake_up,as anybody witness or present wen GOD is judging the dead or be sentimenta that if you did not a christian or muslim u are goin heaven or hell fire:GOD is seaching the hearth. any religion that preach killing is ocult religion.

  8. I wish i have one exraordinary power. our governent is useless, and God will punish all the leaders in Nigeria for not taking any action on this issue. They shall die like this too.

  9. how i wish i have one extra ordinary power to defeat all the bad people in this country, most especially the leaders. i ran to exile because of this crisis. everybody that involves in this shall not go scot free, you shall all die misteriously like this. And you leaders, God will punish all of you for not taking a good action on this , instead embezzling money.corruption has finished all of u. God help me and please, God intervene in Nigeria s problem.

  10. Creeping, after all this time,i’d think some miracle would have happened and u may have attained common sense and comprehension, but alas! U and your band of ignorant deluded bigots still choose to type gibberish in the hopes of making sense.. Believe me, a monkey on a typewriter would have better luck… Nigerians in general are ignorant, arrogant, hypocritical, idiotic, n a whole buncha other negative stuff that time wouldn’t permit me to type.. So in all honesty i’d have the entire country wiped off the world map.. But wen it comes to the religious groups, u can never compare.. It’s like trying to compare man and a dog(Nigerian christians being the latter).. They don’t even have the slightest clue what the bible says,all they do is dress up on sundays n go out to their various ‘harems’ looking for whom they’d get laid with.. They’ve turned churches into concert halls n brothels, dating services n escort services, all they adhere to in the bible is shit that suits THEM… And u dare compare them to muslims, c’mon! U can’t be THAT ignorant can u? Muslims have always been and will always be a peaceful people.. If u EVER hear or see a muslim being violent then i promise you, it’s DEFENSIVE.. Check your history books morons, HITLER,STALIN,LENIN,MILOSOVIC, all of them non-muslims,matter of fact they were christians.. What does that tell u… If u judge a religion by the followers acts then i guess it would b accurate to say that christianity is a religion of sodomy,pedophilia,alcoholism,fornication, e.t.c…
    Quit being narrow minded and stupid and give up your idiotic campaign to deface a religion of peace..

    • John the ripper or what u call urself,U think u can just write anything n post it. what kind of person ar u without thinking. repent or u will be destroy by mindset. i feel sorry for u.

For how long..are we going to keep turning the other cheek?? and continue to be slained like animals..i have witnessed children being stabbed and beheaded, i have seen pregnant women being stabbed with daggers,sliced open and their unborn child brought out and left to die by her side..you are muslims and yet you rape in your jihad?? Islam is a cursed religion..and islam worshipers are cowards and pigs..little wonder mohammed was eaten by a pig in his grave… .

  25. Fuk you so call Nigeria christains. you have loss focus, up the road completely. you can’t differentiate between right and left hand. A typical idol worshiper is far much better than a Nigeria christain. you have seen the devidence of voting Jonathan into power and wait to see more as far as Jonathan remain as president of Nigeria, all churches in the North will be burnt. bombing churches in the North is Jonathan Political will against 2015, but you christain look at it from another different angle bcos you don’t to know what you are doing.

  30. Hausa people are stupid,this country need to divided,becos this country is one but three and it needs three president thats all.

  31. this web page is totally biased. the motive is to blackmail islam period so is no surprised if all the page preaches is Islam against freedom of speech and muslims as murderers. well, I still believe there are individuals with contrary views and no one can change that.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
