Militants Filmed Massacre of Around 100 Defenseless Non-Muslims with AK-47s from Point-Blank Range 

 

12/22/2014 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) - Late Saturday evening, international journalists received a video from members of the Boko Haram insurgency depicting the execution of around 100 non-Muslims in a dormitory-style hall reportedly located in Bama, a remote town in northeast Nigeria. A previous video released by the insurgency declaring the establishment of its Islamic caliphate depicted the execution of dozens of civilians laid face-down in a mass grave dug in former Christian stronghold, Gwoza. Saturday's release went above and beyond previous Boko Haram productions, paralleling the barbarism of videos issued by the Islamic State in Iraq. The number of dead remains unconfirmed as additional reports from Bama (only 40 miles north of Gwoza) continue to make their way to international press outlets.

Set to music, the 11-minute video depicts Boko Haram militants, some dressed in camouflage, others in flannel and jeans, loading fresh magazines into AK-47s before filing into a long, dormitory-style hall filled with "infidels" (or non-Muslims) curled against one another on the floor. Upon entering, some of the men depicted begin to indiscriminately shoot at the bodies covering the floor before targeting those that move in response to the gunfire. The victims' cries, heard between the gunshots, are drowned out by young men chanting, "Allahu Akbar" (or "Allah is Great") while peering in on the massacre through the hall's barred windows.

While it remains unclear how many of the victims were professed Christians, the film's speaker states, "We have made sure the floor of this hall is turned red with blood, and this is how it is going to be in all future attacks and arrests of infidels (or non-Muslims)." The speaker continued, saying, "From now, killing, slaughtering, destruction and bombing will be our religious duty anywhere we invade."

The mass execution follows the insurgency's abduction of an estimated 185 women and children following the massacre of dozens of villagers in Gumsuri village on December 14. Eyewitnesses of the attack reported 33 villagers killed by Boko Haram militants shouting, "Allahu Akbar." News of the attack and mass kidnapping was released to international press Thursday after survivors made the several-day journey to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno, Nigeria's most northeastern state and birthplace to the Boko Haram insurgency.

Established in the 1990s as a peaceful separatist movement by Mohammed Yousef, Jama'tu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad (or "People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet's Teaching and Jihad"), commonly referred to as Boko Haram, became a radicalized and violent Sunni Jihadi insurgency in 2009 when Abubakar Shekau assumed leadership.

A video released by the insurgency earlier this year depicted Shekau-thought to have been killed by Nigerian security forces last year-promising to sell more than 270 mostly Christian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram militants in April "on the market." More than eight months following their abduction, 220 girls remain missing and are suspected of having been forcibly converted to Islam and sold into lifetimes of sexual and domestic slavery as child brides to their militant captors for as little as $12 USD.

Open Doors' World Watch List ranked Nigeria the most dangerous country in the world for Christians to reside in 2013. Since its radicalization in 2009, Nigerian Christians have been all but eradicated from the country's northeast by Boko Haram. Responsible for the deaths of more than 14,000 Nigerians since 2009, Boko Haram has single handedly killed an estimated 1,800 Christians this year alone.

ICC's Regional Manager for Africa, Cameron Thomas, said, "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of this inexcusable atrocity. Militants, armed with AK-47s and a perverted theology of violence and bloodshed, have decimated community after community on their rampage across Nigeria's northeast. Boko Haram has laid waste to the Nigerian church, slaughtering believers for their refusal to convert to Islam, abducting and enslaving schoolgirls for their Christian faith, and murdering pastors for preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. The insurgency can and must be eliminated before its caliphate spreads, claiming innocent lives with each and every advance."

VOICE OF THE CHRISTIAN MARTYRS NIGERIA


PRESS RELEASE


LAI MOHAMMED AND PASTOR BOSUN’S CD

Welcome,


In reaction to the recent newspaper reports about a letter which was credited to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Mr. Lai Mohammed as the spokesperson for a political party has been making disparaging remarks about Pastor Bosun and a message that the pastor delivered to a Christian community.

We wish to express our dissatisfaction about the purported statements by Mr. Lai Mohammed which we consider misleading, unfair, and undemocratic. We condemn it as it is aimed at distracting well meaning Nigerians from the truth that would help build our nation. Serious issues that affect Nigeria were revealed in the message and the Pastor has the right to express his apprehension about issues that affect Christianity, more so, considering the lethal persecution of Christians in the northern parts of the country. Christians needs no instructions from Lai Mohammed on how reasonable people should cast their votes. Nigeria of today is supposed to be a democratic state that guarantees freedom of expression, free thinking and belief, a free country where people have the right to say YES to their fellow men or even No to God. If the All Progressive Congress is truly a democratic party, it should never be afraid of an individual’s opinion. Nobody stops the movement of the winds.
The Nigerian constitution guarantees every citizens right to believe what they want to belief in and join any political party of their choice, nobody should be hunted or persecuted because of what they belief in or not.

Mr. Lai Mohammed is not the spokesperson of Pastor Adeboye and he does not have the right to come out and tell Christians what Pastor Adeboye has to say about the free speech of Pastor Bosun Emmanuel. With due respect to Pastor Adeboye, I believe he has a platform where he addresses the members of his denomination. Mr. Lai should steer clear of Christian affairs. If Pastor Adeboye wants to pass instructions to members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Mr. Lai Mohammed should not be the messenger.
We have enough of Christian blood being shed on daily basis across the Northern Nigeria. We respect Pastor Adeboye, a profound Christian leader, whose messages have changed many lives and brought hope to millions of people around the world. Lai statement on statements credited to Pastor Adeboye does not hold in a free country where all men stands for freedom of conscience and justice. However, we want to state that Nigerian Christians are citizens of Nigeria just like their Muslim counterparts. Nobody should use partisan politics to divide the body of Christ that has suffered so much in this country. If Lai Mohammed wants Christians to vote for his political party then, APC should go back to its drawing board and create a proper balance in the party. Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and many other reasonable and well meaning Nigerians have suggested this. The party should create a political platform that takes into consideration all the various groups in the nation rather than drag the church into its political mud.
Currently in the South West, 100% of APC governors are Muslims. All the governors of APC in Yorubaland are Muslims. So, how does Mr. Lai Mohammed want such a party to be described? Is that an all inclusive party or what is it?
How does Mr. Lai Mohammed want to describe a party which at its inception, nearly all its national principal officers belong to only one religion? Is that a balanced and all inclusive party? On the alleged insinuation that Pastor Bosun’s message is capable of inciting the Christians against Muslims, Mr. Lai Mohammed is being economical with the truth. On the contrary, he is the person seeking to incite Muslims against the Christians. We suggest that he should go and listen again to the message. If the CD was meant to incite anybody, Nigerian Christians should have been on the streets by now. That message was calling Christians to prayers and revival of the church.
Worldwide, the church advocates peace and not war. We also acknowledge that there are moderate Muslims, particularly in the South West, who are willing to practice their religion and allow other people freedom of religious belief. On the contrary, it is the Islamic fundamentalists that have been on rampage in Syria, Iraq, Kenya, Sudan, Somalia, and in northern Nigeria. These are the group of people cutting off people’s heads, amputating hands, beheading little children, wiping out entire families and carrying out genocide and using destructive weapons to cause sorrow and unimaginable hardship for peace loving people. It is the Islamic extremists that are responsible for the insecurity in the nation and they are the cause of the apprehension.
I challenge Lai to rise as a good Muslim, including his party, to put an end to this carnage ravaging the Nigerian nation, rather than raising issues with a godly pastor like Bosun Emmanuel, whom I know can never be purchased to be mischievous.
Christian and Moslem leaders have equal right to contest or follow political parties of their choice as equal citizen of Nigeria. If Christians are concerned about the structure of any political party, they have the right to raise the apprehension.
Again, I will emphasize, Pastor Bosun cannot be said to be wrong in his assessment of APC, because a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, also recently cautioned APC about its strong Islamic posture. APC and Lai Mohammed should go and take corrective measures and reassure Nigerians that they are not seeking to creative a party for the Islamic Brotherhood in Nigeria. Nigeria is a multi-religious and multi-cultural nation. Every serious minded political party must strive to reflect the various diversities in the nation if it wants a broad based support.


CHIBOK GIRLS 
More than 200 girls abducted from Chibok are still in captivity and all our leaders are not doing enough to secure their freedom. This is condemnable around the world. We join the world to condemn this unpatriotic inaction too. Our leaders should stop creating state of chaos to advance their religious and political agenda. We have no other country to call our own than Nigeria. The Government and the oppositions must please wake up and act NOW. Those canvassing for truce with terrorists must equally be terrorists. Weapons worth millions of Naira were moved to the North East, but are now captured by the Boko Haram. If Mubi cannot be protected, nowhere in the North is protected.


OUR CONCERN NOW
Several cities of the North East are largely populated by Christians, Michika with 96% Christians, Gwoza with 75% Christians, Bama with 45 per cent Christians, Madagali with 71% Christians.

These and several other cities of the North East have been captured by the insurgents. Recently, Mubi has been captured and thousands of Christians are on the run, while many have been beheaded and thousands are still missing without any trace.
Christians are being used as human shield by the Boko Haram. Innocent women are abducted while young men are forcefully recruited to join the insurgents. Any Christian that refuses to renounce Christ is beheaded. The situation is so dire that those who escaped to the hills were eating grass due to lack of food. In addition to the lack of food, there has been cholera breakout among the refugees that killed many children.
Please consider the following distressing figures:
On 26th Oct, 2014, Boko Haram abducted 30 men from Mafa to marry the Chibok girls in Sambisa forest.
On 17th Oct, 2014, they took 22 Christians in Gwoza and forced them to take arms.
On 23th Oct 2014, they abducted 26 men and 30 women and took them to Sambisa.
On 25th Oct 2014 Christians that ran to the hills were pursued and slaughtered.
Many Christians have been kidnapped by Boko Haram and were marked with Boko Haram tattoos which make them vulnerable and potrays them as members of the insurgents. Anyone found with this tattoo on the body by Nigerian or Cameroonian military can be arrested or killed immediately.
The nation of Cameroun is populated by 21.7 million people, approximately the size of Lagos state. They are able to keep and protect their borders. Nigerian Leaders must rise above religious and ethnic animosity and prevent this nation from being torn apart.


THE NEED OF THE PERSECUTED CHURCH NOW
While we must appreciate the contribution of the President of CAN, Pastor Oritsejafor, the Anglican Communion (The Burden Bearers), Victoria Christian Fellowship Church, Lekki, TREM, and various other Christian bodies who are helping the children and families of Martyrs in Nigeria, we are asking the Church leaders, to please stand up to save lives now. Our mission is on ground in Yola providing foods and medicals to brothers and sisters who need our help now.
Our gratitude goes to Oyedepo foundation for granting free university education to two of the children of the martyrs. We ask other Christian universities to help these children that lost one or both parents due to the persecution of Christians in northern Nigeria.


Blessings
