Nigerian if anyone cares since it is not about the kidnapped girls

Dozens have been murdered yet there is nary a peep, especially from those who roundly condemned Boko Haram for their brutal kidnapping and enslavement of innocent teenage girls.  The elite protest against the Sultan of Brunai over his instituting of the sharia law but now, the gleam is off the apple and there will be no more "righteous indignation" from the left...or the right.  Life returns to normal and there will be no more talk of death, or Islam, or subjugated girls.

Carry on, nothing to see here now...

Dozens feared dead in Nigeria blast

YOLA, Nigeria (AP) — Dozens of people were feared dead following an explosion on Sunday evening in northeastern Nigeria, with Boko Haram militants believed to be behind the attack, officials said.

The attack took place near a primary school where there are also a number of beer halls in the town of Mubi in Adamawa state, one of the three states under a year-old emergency rule imposed by President Goodluck Jonathan to fight Boko Haram, which seeks to impose Islamic rule in Nigeria.

Othman Abubakar, a spokesman for the Adamawa state police, confirmed the explosion but he couldn’t say how many people had been killed or injured.

David Dauda, who witnessed the blast, said he saw at least 30 bodies following the explosion.

“The blast occurred shortly after people are dispersing from a football playing ground. People gathered there to watch a football competition and just few minutes after soldiers patrol vehicle left the place then we heard a blast,” Dauda said.

The explosion occurred at around 6:45 p.m. local time when many people were headed home to make a 7:00 p.m. curfew imposed in the wake of earlier attacks.

Nigeria’s northeastern region has suffered five years of increasingly deadly assaults by Boko Haram, whose fighters have targeted towns and villages in a string of bomb and gun attacks.

At least 2,000 civilians have been killed in such attacks this year alone.
