The president of Nigeria is a Christian but seems unable to stem the violence against Christians by Muslim sect Boko Haram, which is trying to impose sharia law across the country. Several church bombs went off, the second Christmas in a row the group has caused mass carnage with deadly bombings of churches.
UK DAILY MAIL Terror attacks targeted at Christians, including two bombs at church services, have killed at least 40 across Nigeria. Boko Haram, a Muslim sect claimed responsibility for five attacks which struck the nation’s north-east today. Most of the victims died on the steps of a Roman Catholic church after celebrating Christmas Mass.
The Christmas Day attacks show the growing national ambition of the sect known as Boko Haram, which is thought to be responsible for 504 killings this year alone.
The first explosion struck St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, a town in Niger state close to the capital, Abuja, killing at least 35 and wounding 52. Hours after the first bomb, blasts were reported at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church in the central, ethnically and religiously mixed town of Jos, and at a church in northern Yobe state at the town of Gadaka.
(Never mentioning that the attacks were caused by MUSLIM terrorists), vacationing Barack Obama issued a statement saying ‘We condemn this senseless violence and tragic loss of life on Christmas Day.”
