Nigerian Vigilantes w/Machetes Pursue Boko Haram Muslim Terrorists

For once the machete is inthe other hand.

Obama and his clique have repeatedly warned the Nigerian government to take it easy on Boko Haram. Kerry recently ordered the Nigerian government to show “restraint” when fighting the genocidal Muslim terrorist group that has killed thousands.

Well the Nigerian army is taking it easy. And vigilantes with machetes who don’t give a damn about Obama’s orders are stepping into the breach.

Armed with machetes and clubs, vigilantes in Nigeria’s northeastern city of Maiduguri are setting up roadblocks and conducting house-to-house searches to aid the army’s fight against Islamist militants.

While the military welcomes the public’s support in the battle against the Boko Haram Islamist group, human rights activists say vigilantes’ activities may worsen violence and lead to abuses against innocent civilians.

Guess whose side the “human rights” activists are on? Hint: it’s not the side of innocent civilians.

So far the vigilantes have seized more than 100 suspected insurgents in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital that has borne the brunt of Boko Haram’s violent campaign to impose Shariah law on Nigeria, according to Abubakar Malum, a leader in a group that calls itself the Civilian Joint Task Force.

“The activities of the vigilantes is a step in the right direction,” Mohammed Modu, a fish seller in the city of about 1 million, said on June 25. “They seem to be more effective in capturing Boko Haram members than the soldiers.”

So basically local Muslims have gotten tired of the violence and decided to start taking care of the problem. Boko Haram is backed by Muslim leaders as a ploy for achieving their political aims. And some people have lost patience with the whole mess.

Vigilantes yesterday burned down the house of Alhaji Mala Othman, the Borno state chairman of the opposition All Nigeria People’s Party, Inuwa Bwala, the state commissioner of home affairs and information, said today. The arsonists, who accused Othman of supporting Boko Haram, torched his house after failing to catch him for the second time as security forces let him out through the back door,

Nice of them to do that.

Boko Haram has acknowledged that some residents are turning against them and has vowed to retaliate.

“We have established that youths in Borno and Yobe states are now against our cause,” a Boko Haram spokesman, who gave his name as Abu Zinnira, said in a statement e-mailed to reporters on June 18. “They have connived with security operatives and are actively supporting the government of Nigeria in its war against us. We have also resolved to fight back.”

Poor Boko Haram. Someone is always victimizing the unfortunate organization of genocidal murderers allied with Al Qaeda.

    This is good news, I hope it spreads.

    It’s good to see someone give the Muslims a taste of their own medicine..

    The vigilantes are doing the only thing that is effective against the Islamic terrorists, taking action. Diplomacy and appeasement do nothing but embolden them. They tend to get the point when people fight back.

    Short of dropping a nuke in Boko Haram strongholds in the area, this is probably the next best thing.

    The mainstream media have not said enough about Boko Haram–a group so filled with hatred against Israel that it has to kill, even though its victims are as likely as not to hate Israel as much as they do.
    Muslims in Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere regularly set off bombs in marketplaces and mosques. Like Boko Haram, the perpetrators are so filled with hate that they have to kill. Muslims are killing Muslims in many countries every day because they cannot control their hatred.

      John Kerry is only interested in Nigeria’s oil, with 83% of Nigeria’s oil wells controlled by Northern politicians acquired during 40 years of successive Northern military coupes. Western countries including Exxon Mobil, BP. Shell etc run these wells. These countries indirectly control Nigeria as over 80% of her revenue comes from oil. Kerry does not want to offend the Northerners who sponsor Boko Haram. Kerry and company are trying to appease the murderers, who have killed thousands even in churches, and on Christmas day. He must now twist and open his mouth so that the Islamic terrorists can drop a few more gallons of oil into his wide open mouth. He has traded his conscience and morals for oil. PURE EVIL HYPOCRITE- Nigeria is not Saudi Arabia, Kwuwaith, or Qatar where this policy has succeeded. We must resist what has happen in the middle East from happening in Nigeria. The writing is on the wall with Africa Command. We love the US, but Kerry -stop SWIFTBOATING NIGERIA, for once be a human being because currently you are aligning with the Devil.

    The People are the answer
    When the People rise up to attack those who indiscriminately kill; they know who are the perpetrators and their lacky’s. And they know what must be done, or otherwise the murderers rule the many. What makes it easier in Nigeria is that the foreigners responsible are so easy to spot.
