Muslims in Nigeria slaughtered a Christian man and his two sons. They also abducted their mother. The daughter who survived, said:
They slaughtered my father, killed my two brothers and abducted my mother and her sister
According to a report:
Insurgents in northern Nigeria have intensified their struggle to create an Islamic caliphate in recent weeks, seizing towns and cities spread over an estimated 20,000 kilometers (7,700 square miles) along the border with Cameroon. The area is the size of the U.S. state of Maryland and it used to be home to more than 2 million people but many have now fled because the Boko Haram extremists kill young men who won’t join their cause and chop off the hands of alleged looters.
Sulaiman is among the more than 350 schoolchildren now missing from the commercial center of Mubi and its surrounding towns, including Uba, school principals and an education official said.
The students were all at schools when Boko Haram fighters drove into town in pickup trucks and on motorbikes, firing anti-aircraft guns and AK-47 assault rifles, two principals and an education official said on condition of anonymity because they fear reprisals on their families trapped in territory held by the insurgents.
People scattered in all directions, with thousands now stuck across the border in Cameroon. Many thousands more have dispersed across Nigeria and are now internally displaced.
Naomi Bitrus came to Yola but was separated from two of her three children. “They are still missing, nobody knows their whereabouts,” she said, tears rolling down her cheeks.
Tailor Solomon Kabila said he has had no news of his wife and eight children: “When the insurgents struck Mubi, my wife called to tell me that she and the children were in the midst of the insurgents, who were firing gunshots, then the line went dead.”
Thousands of people have fled Mubi, a city of more than 200,000 that had been flooded by refugees from surrounding towns that had been seized.
People trapped in the town said by telephone that Boko Haram first killed young men who would not join their fight, then went after government workers and moderate Muslim clerics. Now, they said, things are normalizing and a market day was even held in Uba.
