Fifth Bangladeshi Atheist Hacked To Death This Year

I saw a tweet announcing 43-year-old Faisal Arefin Dipon's death about 4 hours ago but was too filled with a combination of dread and deep sadness to even begin to look for details. He was found dead by his father, Abul Kashem Fazlul Haq, a writer.

Journalists Threatened In Nigeria For Reporting The Rape Of Secondary School Boys

Two days ago, this report about an invasion of a secondary school in Kano state, Nigeria, by "mysterious persons" who proceeded to rape some of the students must have ruffled more than a few feathers, because just yesterday, a journalist was asked to desist from investigating the incident by three men who claimed to be from the police.

Another Video Shows Suspected Boko Haram Members Being Interrogated And Threatened With Death

The video above surfaced two days ago and seems to depict some authority figure (from the Nigerian Army perhaps?) in the midst of captured suspected Boko Haram terrorists. This was after another video showing the civilian JTF in Borno state subjecting a suspected Boko Haram terrorist to brutal torture by hanging him from a tree with his hands and feet tied together behind his back.

Boko Haram Releases Second Propaganda Video In A Month

Nigeria's very own home grown islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, released an undated video showing its battle with Nigerian troops, the second one a month. The video shows the terrorists looting an apparently overrun barracks, which had been abandoned by the retreating Nigerian troops, of food and weapons which were put on display at the end of the video.

The wife of the Borno state governor, Hajia Nana Shettima who is pictured above, has distributed cancer prevention and detection kits (sic) to the wives of the 27 local government caretaker chairmen for onward delivery to "targeted beneficiaries" across the state. She presented the kits at an enlightenment campaign in Maiduguri, the state capital, where she told those gathered that cancer had become deadly (when was is ever not) in the state, especially among women.

Kano State Government Conducts Mass Wedding For 2000 Widows And Divorcees

The government of Kano state, Nigeria, is forcing 2000 women (all divorcees or widows) into marriages in a bid "to check prostitution and other vices in the society." This program, which has seen over 5000 couples forced into marriage in state organized mass weddings, began in 2012. It is overseen by the Kano State Hisbah Board.

Helicopter Crash Survivors Claim They Were Saved By Prophet's Morning Water

Just two days ago, I mentioned prophet TB Joshua's 'morning water' which I had previously written about. It turns out the morning water is literally a life saver. On August 12 this year, a helicopter carrying 10 passengers and 2 crew members crashed into the lagoon in Oworonshoki in Lagos, Nigeria. There were 6 fatalities.

Men Who Claim To Be Pastors Arrested In Connection With The Murder Of A Hunchbacked Man

A Nigerian man from Abia state, Marshall Nwankwo, has been arrested in connection with the murder of a hunchbacked man. He, along with his accomplice Emeka Okoye, who is currently on the run, murdered their victim for the sole purpose of using parts of his body for money-making rituals. Both men claimed to be pastors.

Pakistani Christian Headmaster Brutally Beaten By Muslim Colleagues For Being Their Superior

Saddique Azam, a Pakistani catholic christian who was promoted to the position of headmaster, was brutally beaten and tortured by aggrieved muslim colleagues who have refused to work under his authority. He was appointed three months ago, was never issued a letter of appointment, and the police have ignored his plight; while the local government have been putting pressure on him to resign. The beleaguered teacher, in the first two months after his appointment, was the subject of constant verbal abuse, derision and harassment by his muslim colleagues in a bid to get him to resign, citing his faith as the reason he cannot be headmaster.

Zimbabwe Pastor Sells Exam Success Pens

A Zimbabwean pastor, who goes by the appellation Prophet Sham Hungwe, of House of Grace International Church has promised his congregation examination success if they  have faith and write with his "anointed" pens. Of course the pens are not free; they cost about 15 cents each, but his congregants pay as much as $20, because the 'prophet' has led them to believe that the more they pay, which is also a measure of their faith in the magic pens, the greater their success in the said examinations.

Borno 'Elder' Labels Boko Haram Terrorists Cowards For Bombing Innocent Citizens

Alhaji Bulami Gubio (Nigerians love titles, 'Alhaji' in this case denotes he has been to Mecca for the hajj), the secretary of the Borno Elders Forum, BEF, in the wake of the twin suicide bomb attacks on 2 mosques in Borno and Adamawa states today has labelled the Boko Haram terrorists as cowards. He said they would rather take to bombing innocent citizens praying in mosques than take on the Nigerian military in the bushes.

A Second Mosque Attacked By Suicide Bombers In Northern Nigeria Hours After Today's Early Morning Suicide Bombing

I predicted that more mosques would be attacked in northern Nigeria by the Boko Haram terrorists barely 8 hours ago, and while it gives me no pleasure whatsoever, at least 27 persons have been killed and another 96 injured in a second suicide bombing attack in a single day, this time in a mosque in Yola, Adamawa state.

Muslim Cleric Says It Is Dangerous To Marry Just One Wife

The  absurd buffoonery exhibited by muslim clerics, going by what I have seen and heard, is overwhelmingly incredible. I had previously written here about a muslim cleric describing the breasts and sexual desirability of the virgins in paradise, and also about another who said that men who masturbated would meet their pregnant hands in the afterlife (and what surprise awaits women who masturbated?). This time, a Nigerian muslim scholar and preacher, Shiekh Muyideen Bello, stated that it is dangerous for a muslim man to marry just one wife. Mr Bello advocated starting with two wives, a directive from Allah!

Borno State Muslims Do Not Learn As Six Die In Another Mosque Bombing

Another suicide bomber has detonated a bomb in a mosque located behind a magistrate court in Maiduguri, Borno state, Nigeria. The incident occurred this morning, killing six, with another 17 injured. The suicide bomber had two accomplices who fled when accosted by the civilian JTF who were suspicious of their movement around the vicinity of the mosque during the call for today's early morning prayers.

Civilian JTF Tortures Suspected Boko Haram Members

The Joint Task Force, JTF, was formed by the Nigerian government and comprises various armed forces (army, navy, airforce, state secret police) whose mandate is to tackle the Boko Haram terrorists. Due to the initial failure of the JTF to curtail the Boko Haram menace, the youths of Maiduguri in Borno state, which is the hotbed of Boko Haram's activities, formed the Borno Youth Association of Peace and Justice, also known as the Civilian JTF, to basically do what the federal forces could not do. Their arsenal includes locally made guns, machetes, and bows and arrows.

Nigeria Prays

I saw the picture above, taken in 1973, which shows Nigeria's former military head of state, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), shaking hands with the Prime Minister-designate of Canada, Justin Trudeau, who was two years old then, and rued Nigeria's missed opportunities at greatness.

Hajj Stampede Victims Will Go To Heaven Says Nigerian Pilgrim Who Escaped Death

Mr Kawuwa Damina, the speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly in Nigeria, has opened up about how he escaped death during the hajj stampede that killed at least 717 people. He said he had passed the scene of the stampede less than one hour before it happened.

Gunman Kills Five Shia Muslims In Saudi Arabia

Just yesterday, I wrote about muslims killing fellow muslims and used the oppression of the minority shias by the majority sunni muslims in Saudi Arabia as an example. Well, in my usual 'prophetic' manner (please pay no heed to this), a sunni muslim man shot and killed five shia muslims and injured nine others before he was gunned down by Saudi police. A group claiming links to Islamic State, IS, has claimed responsibility.

Boko Haram Suicide Bombers Kill Worshippers Inside Mosque Again

Boko Haram terrorists continued their carnage in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, by detonating bombs in a mosque again and using female suicide bombers elsewhere. At least 61 persons died in both attacks which occurred last night and very early this morning respectively.

Church Whose Collapsed Building Killed Over 100 Persons Challenges Indictment And Possible Prosecution

The Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, overseen by pastor TB Joshua (pictured), will be in court from Monday next week to challenge its indictment by the Lagos state coroner's office. It will be recalled that a guest house under construction collapsed and killed over 100 persons most of whom were foreigners from other African countries who are seeking miracles from Mr Joshua. The church's official position was that a mysterious aircraft had caused the collapse, and I had written about the delay in prosecuting TB Joshua for mass murder nearly a year after the incident.

Man Whose Wife And Daughter Were Killed During Bank Robbery Says They Will Make Heaven

A man whose wife and 14-month-old daughter were killed by stray bullets during a bank robbery operation in Lagos, Nigeria, has said they will "make heaven." The robbers were shooting sporadically into the air to scare away those in the vicinity of their operation and the unfortunate mother and child, who were actually in their home, were fatally wounded. The family goes to The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Church, whose general overseer is pastor Lazarus Muoka.

Two Nigerian States Declare Tomorrow Public Holidays To Celebrate The Islamic New Year

Kano and Jigawa states in northern Nigeria have declared tomorrow (October 14) as a public holiday to mark the islamic new year. Both states, in the official statements released to the press, called on their respective citizens to continue to pray for the peace and prosperity of the states.

Fear Of Extradition And Prosecution Kills Nigerian Politician

Diepreye Solomon Peter (DSP) Alamieyeseigha, the first executive governor of Nigeria's oil rich Bayelsa state died earlier today aged 62. He was said to have taken ill two days ago which caused him to slip into a coma. This was the same man who disguised himself as a woman and slipped out of the United Kingdom to escape money laundering charges in 2005. He was impeached and removed from office soon after, and his then deputy, and immediate past president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, became governor. He later served a short jail time for the same corruption and money laundering charges in Nigeria, but was controversially granted a state pardon by Jonathan in 2013.

Motivating Muslim Men

I read this (in which a muslim cleric says that those who masturbate will have a pregnant hand in the afterlife) a few months ago and was convinced that the moronic men who passed for islamic clerics couldn't get any stupider. But this has had my sides in excruciating pain from long bouts of laughter. Is this really the reason young men blow themselves up with suicide vests and fly planes into buildings? Islamic clerics keep reminding young muslim men of the 72 virgins that await them in paradise. But this particular Saudi cleric has added that not only are the breasts of the virgins like pomegranates, their virginities are renewed each and everyday and they become even more lustful and feminine!

Boko Haram Detonates Bombs Inside A Mosque

Boko Haram terrorists, pretending(?) to be worshippers detonated two bombs in a mosque early this morning in Gubio town, Borno state. They killed 12 persons and injured many others. Despite the claims of the Nigerian army, and president Buhari's promise to curtail the terrorists, the insurgents are getting bolder in their suicide attack campaigns and recently detonated several bombs in the capital city of Abuja.

Lagos Crusade Ends Amidst Claims Of Salvation And Multiple Miracles

The Deeper Christian Life Ministry, led by pastor William F Kumuyi (above), concluded a month-long, Lagos city-wide crusade on Sunday. The crusade saw the respected preacher tour the Lagos, Nigeria's former capital, on a mission to win souls for the Lord's vineyard, and very uncharacteristically failed to collect any money in the form of offerings or contributions from the hundreds of thousands in attendance at the various venues. Apart from the nearly 40000 persons who were said to have been "converted", there were reports of diverse miracles. It is this miracle part that really interests me.

Boko Haram Detonates Multiple Bombs In Abuja Killing At Least 20

Just after Boko Haram's independence day 'gift' to Nigeria two days ago in which young female suicide bombers were employed, they struck in the capital city of Abuja last night, detonating multiple bombs within minutes of each other and killing at least 20 (graphic images, please beware!). This is the first bomb blast in Abuja in over a year and the first since Buhari became president.

Girls Carry Out Suicide Bomb Attacks For Boko Haram

While Nigerians were in a celebratory mood yesterday to mark the 55th anniversary of the country's independence, the Boko Haram terrorists struck. The suicide attacks were carried out by about 5 or 6 girls, at least one of whom was about 10 years old according to an eye witness.

My Independence Day Wish For Nigeria

Today marks 55 years of independence for Nigeria from British rule. About 29 of those years have been spent under military dictatorships which began after a coup d'etat in 1966 that precipitated the 30-month long Nigeria-Biafra civil war, and after a brief 4 years of civilian rule from 1979 to 1983, the current president, Muhammadu Buhari, then a Major General in the army, led another coup which brought in the military for another 16 years. Nigeria has since 1999 had its longest uninterrupted democratic period in its chequered history.
