Nigerian Jihadist Group Boko Haram Slaughters 40 College Students While They Slept…

Via Sky News:

    At least 40 people have been killed after suspected Islamist gunmen fired on students as they slept at a college in northeast Nigeria.

    The attackers reportedly stormed a dormitory and set fire to classrooms in the assault which happened about 1am local time on Sunday in the town of Gujba in Yobe state.

    Nigeria’s military is blaming militants from the Boko Haram insurgent group for the atrocity at the College of Agriculture.

    A source told the AFP news agency that 40 bodies had been brought to hospital.

    College provost Molima Idi Mato said security forces were still recovering bodies so he could not give an exact number of dead but said up to 50 had been killed.

    He also said about 1,000 students had fled the scene.

    The college is about 25 miles from the scene of similar school attacks around Damaturu town.

Nigeria: Militants Kill Students in College Attack By Adamu Adamu, ABC News/AP  September 29, 2013 (AP)

    Suspected Islamic extremists attacked an agricultural college in the dead of night, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in dormitories and torching classrooms in an ongoing Islamic uprising in northeast Nigeria, the school's provost said.

    As many as 50 students may have been killed in the attack that began at about 1 a.m. Sunday in rural Gujba, Provost Molima Idi Mato of the Yobe State College of Agriculture, told The Associated Press.

    "They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels, they opened fire at them," he said.

    He said he could not give an exact death toll as security forces still are recovering bodies.

    The Nigerian military has collected 42 bodies and transported 18 injured students to Damaturu Specialist Hospital, said a military intelligence official, who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press.

The school's other 1,000 enrolled students have fled the college that is about 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of the scene of similar school attacks around Damaturu town, said provost Mato.

He said there were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances that they would be deployed. The state commissioner for education, Mohammmed Lamin, called a news conference two weeks ago urging all schools to reopen and promising protection from soldiers and police.

Most schools in the area closed after militants on July 6 killed 29 pupils and a teacher, burning some alive in their hostels, at Mamudo outside Damaturu.

Northeastern Nigeria is under a military state of emergency to battle an Islamic uprising prosecuted by Boko Haram militants who have killed more than 1,700 people since 2010 in their quest for an Islamic state. Boko Haram means Western education is forbidden in the local Hausa language.

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau last week published a video to prove he is alive and prove false military claims that they might have killed him in an ongoing crackdown.

Government and security officials claim they are winning their war on terror in the northeast but Sunday's attack and others belie those assurances.

The Islamic extremists have killed at least 30 other civilians in the past week.

Twenty-seven people died in separate attacks Wednesday and Thursday night on two villages of Borno state near the northeast border with Cameroon, according to the chairman of the Gamboru-Ngala local government council, Modu-Gana Bukar Sheriiff.

The military spokesman did not respond to requests for information on those attacks, but a security official confirmed the death toll. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to give information to journalists.

Also Thursday, police said suspected Islamic militants killed a pastor, his son and a village head and torched their Christian church in Dorawa, about 100 kilometers from Damaturu. They said the gunmen used explosives to set fire to the church and five homes.

Meanwhile, farmers and government officials are fleeing threats of imminent attacks from Boko Haram in the area of the Gwoza Hills, a mountainous area with caves that shelter the militants despite repeated aerial bombardments by the military.

This is awful.

Satan is running rampant in the guise of religious "fundamentalism."

There are no words that fully describe this level of evil.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Islamic uprising prosecuted by Boko Haram militants

I'm beginning to wonder just how many different Islamic "militant" groups that have come on the scene in the past few years.
They can call Islam a "religion of peace" all day long but it's nothing more than a barbaric authorization to kill.
Truthfully, the most important thing in life is knowing what the most important things in life are, and prioritizing them accordingly.   Melchor Lim

They are cowards just like those Muslims who killed and tortured people in the mall in neither case did their victims have a means to fight back. Attacking students while they sleep how very cowardly you must be to kill without having to worry about anyone fighting back or even being awake. It is also another instance where Muslims are killing Muslims since many of the students were Muslims. Islam is violence at it's worst.

See!  Lurch has it right!  If jihadists just had more economic opportunities, these kinds of things would never happen. :3:
