Gunmen kill five in Yobe

21

From TIMOTHY OLA, Maiduguri

Five people were killed in Geidam, a small community in Yobe State at the weekend by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram. Geidam is located in the northern part of the north-eastern Yobe State.

Sources said the gunmen attacked the Kasuwan Shanu area of Geidam town on Friday night and shot dead five people mostly traders.

A resident who lost his brother in the attack said he left behind the victim to take care of his business while away in Lagos on business trip. “I just got a call that my younger brother was killed, We spoke on phone few days ago. I don’t know what to do now because I’m in Lagos to buy goods and replenish my shop,” the man said on condition of anonymity. Police sources hinted that the perpetrators of the Friday attack in Geidam “might not actually be Boko Haram but armed robbers because the attackers also robbed their victims of their monies and carted away cartons of liquor being sold by their victims.

“We believe the assailants are armed robbers and we have strong feeling that the Kasuwan Shanu attack last Friday was an armed robbery case and not Boko Haram,” a police officer who did not want his name in print said. Yobe State Commissioner of Police, Mr Patrick Egbuniwe, however said four persons were killed in the attack, adding that his command was investigating the matter. “There was an attack on civilians in Geidam by some unknown gunmen and four people were killed. We are still investigating the matter,” the CP said.

  1. The only answer to killings in Nigeria is ”We are investigating” and that is the end of it. Police who can not investigate attacks of them and killing of police men, How on earth will they conclude investigation on killings of civilians. Is high time the journalist stop asking police men question on attack, since they already knew their answer ”we are investigating it” In the country i reside, When a crime is reported in a media, you will be seeing updates base of police investigation and findings till they get to the root of it, arrest and prosecute the perpetrators. The same story everyday, which way Nija? May God help us.

  2. Comrade Peter Ufuoma Ibeh on

    YOU GUYS KEEP BLAMING THE POLICE, WHY ARE U SO NEGATIVE IN THIS COUNTRY? YOU CAN GO AND JOIN D POLICE OR BETTER STILL VOLUNTEER YOURSELF TO ARREST D CULPRIT. NA YOUR TYPE WEY SABI ACCUSE PEOPLE DE COLLECT BRIBE PASS. NONSENSE!

    • ufuoma what are you trying to say if you don’t know what to say you better close your mouth because what this guy said is the simple truth i don’t know the work of our police in this our country or is like your father is a police man that is why your talking like this please say the truth is only it can set you free

  3. Why do stories have to be so long
    when told by a woman?
    Example:

    Man telling the story: “Hey you
    remember that fat guy who was
    dancing at the party? He died.”

    Woman telling the same story: “Honey Do you remember my friend Jackie from work? The one who invited us to her party! She just told me that Mike’s wife from the party, heard from James’ wife Cathy, that Philip told her that his brother Max, the fat guy from the party, choked on a piece of meat, or it could have been bread,I don’t remember, but anyway, she said that Max was rushed to the hospital late last night, after he suffocated from being choked by the bread. They did all they could do to save him, but he didn’t make it. I can’t believe it, that fat guy from the party died.”

    Is it coz they have 2 sets of lips or what??

  5. Nigeria’s Amalgamation Expires In 2014 by queenogech: 9:01am On Sep 25, 2011
    The amalgamation of southern and northern Nigeria by the British was to be experimented for 100 YEARS to know if it’s going to work or not, according to the secret government document the British left after independence. Although the document is kept secret, this fact is generally known to the ruling class, most dons of political science and law as well as the government of UK. However, there has been consistent efforts by Nigerian government to keep this knowledge out of public as it may lead to agitation for breaking the country into two i.e pre-1914 status especially by those in the south. The awareness of this document and the closeness of 2014 has been causing panic among the Northern elites; this panic was behind the recent comment by the senate president that Nigeria will not break up. It was also behind the warning by NBA president when he said in Benin this week that Nigeria may break-up. Even pres. Jonathan is nervous about this fact; remember that he kept on saying that Nigeria will not break-up. Also,it was the real reason behind the northern governors recent security meeting in Kaduna, according to some sources. All these sudden talks about nigeria breaking or not breaking up by the political leaders including the president show how anxious they are about the implications of the document and the closeness of almighty 2014. On the international scene, the knowledge of this document was behind the prediction by American diplomats that Nigeria will break-up in 2015. The US army is also preparing on how to respond to the possible break up of Nigeria.
    IMPLICATIONS OF THE DOCUMENT
    1. BY 2014, NIGERIA WILL NO LONGER LEGALLY EXIST
    2. NIGERIA WILL BE BACK TO PRE-1914 STATUS OF TWO STATES OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA AND NORTHERN NIGERIA BOTH LEGALLY AND TECHNICALLY, ALTHOUGH THE RULING ELITES MAY IGNORE THIS REALITY EXCEPT THERE IS REVOLUTION FROM THE PEOPLE.
    3. PEOPLE OF SOUTHERN AND NORTHER NIGERIA MUST COME TOGETHER TO ENTER A NEW AGREEMENT UNDER THEIR OWN TERMS.
    4. JOIN THE REVOLUTION, SHARE THIS ON FACEBOOK.

  6. I know is Igbo traders that they killed, i still blame them for being in that desert called north, May their souls rest in peace

  7. whenever we had traders killed in d north by unknown gunmen, it is needless for anyone to ask about their tribes, because boko haram’s is meant to terminate ds cannot do without tribe. May God bless us

  8. We should nt blame gudluck, he mst nt be everywia. Nd secondly. We should nt generalise d term police bcos mst of dem re tryin dia bst. Wht we have 2do is 2put it in prayer nd everytin wil work out, tnx

  9. for me if you ask me i will say that those people are boko haram because idris abudukarim said in his music that arm rubber came into your house and didn’t take your money and didn’t rape your wife went to your head and shoot you down you know that political arm rubber though that this people collect people money as they said but after
    collect their money went ahead and kill four people to show that they are not only rubbers but boko haram criminals
    because bokoharam are criminal that hide under the islamic religion so the media should stop fooling people by not calling a spade a spade simple

  10. As far as i am concern,Nigeria does have a funtional governmernt.What we have are people dat make empty promises,carry our money as if it is their personal money.May God deliver us.

  11. Any time innocent people are killed in cold blood, my heart bleeds for this country. Why on earth should an individual or group of people waste human lives and get away scot free? How do these weapons of mass destruction find their way into the country? Why can`t the security agents respond promptly to distress situations like this without waiting for orders from above? How well trained and equipped are the security agents? How long shall law abiding Nigerians live in constant fear of their lives and properties?
    A muslem friend paid me a visit in a christian-dominated area of Kaduna city. He was so uncomfortable in my house that he could not even eat until he reached a `safe` zone. If we can not live together as one nation,, then we should tell ourselves the truth and go seperate ways. Abi?

  12. I think its high time d northerners nd their police stop fooling nigerians d piple are not bokoharam but armed robbers,all of us know dat d bokorom haram are runing out of supply nd so dey are resorted to loothing nd killing so as to keep two ends meet,i want to as well advice d southerneners nd westeners dat are still in d north dat there is nothing in d north u cant get beta else where,they r only risking their live bcos dis piple hates us to d core,i spent over twenty yrs in d north in yobe st to be precise,my shop was nd my fellow igbo brodas shops were burnt down just bcos jonathan won election not even a dime was given to us as compensation many died as a result,with my ears i head wen their leaders were tellng dem in their mosque wot to us if d election did not go their way,brothers u r risking ur lives in d north

  13. D northern people must know dat wht comes up must surely go down and u can neva eat ur cake nd stil hv it. Weda 2015 or 2019 d north wil produce a president if nigeria remains one, d south wil b waitin 4 u den 2 revenge wht u r doing now, jst 2 tel u dat u r not d only pple dat hv d monopoly of violence.
