The Nigerian List

I have decided to post groupings of jihad in Nigeria, only because it is now such an almost daily occurrence.  It appears Nigeria is soon to go the way of Somalia, a sad situation as Nigeria is between Somalia and the center of Sub-Saharan Africa and with it in Islamic hands, the path is wide open for jihad to spread rapidly into the interior.

Here is today's Nigerian Jihad News;

KANO, Nigeria: Gunmen burnt down a school in Nigeria's troubled city of Maiduguri, the second such attack in two days in an area rocked by Boko Haram Islamist raids, an official said Thursday.

‘We will get you soon:’ Slaying of Christian in northern Nigeria increases religious tensions

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Police discovered the body of a 79-year-old Christian woman killed in northeast Nigeria, with a note in Arabic left on her chest reading: “We will get you soon,” a witness said Thursday.
The slaying raises religious tensions in Nigeria as a radical Islamist sect increasingly targets Christians in its bloody attacks. While police said they knew of no immediate suspects in the killing, witnesses blamed the attack on the sect known as Boko Haram, which has been blamed for killing at least 305 people this year alone, according to an Associated Press count.
The dead woman was identified as Shetu Haruna Malgwi, a Christian living in the city of Maiduguri in Nigeria’s Muslim north. Assailants apparently attacked Malgwi on Wednesday, a day after she returned home from receiving an eye treatment in the city of Kaduna, Borno state police spokesman Samuel Tizhe said.
Her killers slit the woman’s throat, then wrote a note with red pen they left on her chest...
There is it all
