Murders in Borno

•Gunmen kill school teacher, 2 others

From TIMOTHY OLA, Maiduguri

A school teacher and two others were yesterday murdered in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members. The gunmen, according to a resident, sneaked into the residence of the school teacher, who worked at a popular private school at GRA road.

“They sneaked into his house at Polo area at 2 a.m. on Saturday and shot him dead,” a resident who would not want his name in print for ‘security reason’ said. Sunday Sun gathered that the gunmen also attacked two residents at Sulemanti ward and shot them dead.

Sources said the assassinated residents were neighbours whose houses were only separated by another house. Confirming the killings yesterday in Maiduguri, Police Public Relations Officer of Borno State Police Command, Gideon Jibrin, said he heard of the attacks at Polo and Sulemanti areas. He also said no arrests had been made by either the police or the Joint Task Force.

The killing of the school teacher and two others brought to 12 the number of residents murdered in Sulemanti and Polo areas in recent time. It was in these areas that three children were slaughtered when the assailants could not get to the head of the family and father of the three children.  Violence appears to be on the increase in the troubled city tormented by Boko Haram insurgents, as a day hardly passes without killings occasioned by suspected Boko Haram Islamists.

    JTF should change their tactics of reporting issues of Boko haram. If JTF goes on air to declare publicly that members of the public are assising them with useful information in arresting these hudlums, then they should expect such backlashes like killing innocent people around their area of operations! In security, there are certain information you dont divulge to the press. I am afraid this development will affect information gathering, concerning the activities of Boko haram, from the public if care is not taken.

    kanuris are the weaked people on earth.They are stark illiterates and even those that are educated are educated illiterares.They are awashed with parocialism,medievalism and myopic.
    Boko Haram was planted by Modu Sheriff,watered by ANPP,harrowed by wicked chiefs and harvested by commoners.

    l agree with Sunny in toto.Information should not be divulge for whatever reason.They Joint Patrol should learn from press men who will never disclose their sources of information.
    For Eze Chukwu l dont believe dividing this country is the answer.We need to bring revolution to sanitise the whole system of crime and terror.So many things are bad in the country.
