Islamic Attack Nigeria

January 23, 2012 by staff 

Islamic Attack Nigeria, The aging Muslim spiritual leader of this northern Nigeria city, his eyes heavy with fatigue, leaned into a microphone Monday and whispered to God his wish for peace after the killing of at least 185 people in an attack by a radical Islamist sect. On the street, however, smudged black graffiti written in charcoal gave a different message: “Boko Haram good.”

Muslim men pray for peace and for people who lost their lives during the recent attacks, at a mosque in Kano, Nigeria, Monday, Jan. 23, 2012. The emir of Kano and the state’s top politician offered prayers Monday along with local people for the more than 150 people who were killed in a coordinated series of attacks on Friday by the radical Islamist sect called Boko Haram which means “Western education is sacrilege” in the Hausa language of Nigeria’s north.

Though businesses reopened and traffic again filled the streets Monday of Nigeria’s second-largest city, people in Kano remained fearful the radical sect known as Boko Haram will attack again. That tension only increased as police announced they had discovered 10 unexploded car bombs around the city, as uniformed officers and soldiers melted away from public view in this city of more than 9 million people.

“We are not safe at all,” warned resident Aminu Garba, 38. “We are not safe.”
