Muslims, members of Boko Haram, in the Nigerian area of Maiduguri took 29 poor farmers as they were tilling their fields and executed every one of them. As one report states:
Suspected militants from Islamist group Boko Haram shot dead 29 farm workers as they tilled their fields in remote north-east Nigeria, a police source saidas the mounting insurgency increasingly targets civilians.
The attackers destroyed most of the village of Chukku Nguddoa and wounded another 10 people on Wednesday, said police in Borno state, the heart of the revolt that is piling political pressure on the government.
Boko Haram initially attacked mostly security forces, government officials and sometimes Islamic clerics who spoke out against it. But when President Goodluck Jonathan ordered a military offensive a year ago to flush them out, civilians formed vigilante groups to help out – and they became targets. The mounting killings of civilians, and the government’s apparent inability to halt them, have triggered widespread anger.
Boko Haram is only a product of Islam, and the only way to end Boko Haram is to end Islam.
