Osama Bin Laden, late Al-Qaeda Leader

British spy chiefs said at the weekend that they had uncovered a plot by Al-Qaeda to make Nigeria their headquarters from where they could carry out attacks on Europe.

Also, members of the fundamentalist group, Boko Haram, were on the prowl at the weekend as they killed two brothers and another person in Maiduguri, Borno State, during an alleged house-to-house search for non-Muslims.

London-based newspaper, Mirror, reported Sunday that Prime Minister David Cameron had been alerted by the spy chiefs on the determination by the terrorist group to make Nigeria a base for plotting terror attacks on the West.

The report aligned the intention of Al-Qaeda with the attacks by Boko Haram whom they described as “dramatically stepping up their campaign”.

Mirror quoted an unnamed British official as lamenting that “there are dozens of flights every day from Lagos to London. We either help stop the terrorists here, or we will be dealing with them on the streets of Britain.”

However, there are only three direct flights to London everyday – by Virgin Atlantic, British Airways and Arik Air.

On Christmas Day in 2009, before Boko Haram became very threatening, an alleged young Nigerian Al-Qaeda operative, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, attempted to bomb a United States Delta airliner on its way to Detroit but was stopped by the plane occupants.

Last year, Reuters reported that an Al-Qaeda group in North Africa had offered to give Nigerian Muslims training and weapons to fight Christians.

"We are ready to train your people in weapons and give you whatever support we can in men, arms and munitions to enable you to defend our people in Nigeria," the statement by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) said, according to the news agency.

It was signed in the name of Abu Mus'ab Abdel-Wadoud, who was described as the "emir" or leader of the group and appeared on Islamic websites that often carry statements from groups using the Al-Qaeda name around the world.

"You are not alone in this test. The hearts of Mujahideen are in pain over your troubles and desire to help you as much as possible in the Islamic Maghreb, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Chechnya," it said.

Last Saturday's attacks by the Boko Haram group began at about 11pm and lasted till midnight at the Bulabuli-Ngaranaram area of Maiduguri, the state capital.

Witnesses revealed that the attack was carried out by three unidentified gunmen who scaled the fences of the houses in selective search for non-Muslim residents.

At the end of their attacks, three persons, comprising one Abba Panam, a local mason and two blood brothers - Sani Umar, 35, and Apagu Umar, 30 - were killed at different locations.

During the attacks, an ex-soldier, Pa Joseph, managed to escape with several bullet wounds.

The wife of late Panam, who spoke to journalists on the attack amidst sobbing and wailing, said the three men jumped into their compound around 11pm and asked everyone in the house to come out for checks.  They thereafter separated the women from the men and asked her husband to lie down.

According to her: "They asked if my husband will stop being a Christian and become one of them (Muslim) and my husband told them that ‘no, I am already a Christian’.  Then they shot him in the head. I came out after they had gone and saw my husband, the father of my nine children, dead with wounds in his head.”

She added that the men that killed her husband were dressed like soldiers, but that their trousers were not all that very long.

In the home of Umar, which was a stone’s throw from Panam’s, the eldest brother of the Panam brothers told THISDAY that he was informed by those in their house that the gunmen attacked at about 11:45pm and left within 10 minutes as his two younger brothers were also killed.

He said: “When they entered the house, they asked for money from the youngest of my brothers, Apagu, who is 30 years old and an oil business man.  His wife immediately entered into the house to bring out the money in the house while they held my brothers down at gunpoint. When they got the money, they said that was not only what they came for and then shot both of them in the head.”

He added that apart from the suspicion that they were killed by Boko Haram members, he also suspected that his two brothers’ assailants might be those that owed his junior brother Apagu some huge amount of money from the transactions he had with them in the past.

“My brother had told me that some of his business associates are those suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect; and since after the attack on them in 2009 most of them ran away without paying him his money. He told me some three months ago that some of them came back and paid him his money while some others refused to. I believe those that killed my brothers did so because of the money they owed,” he said.

Confirming the development, the military Joint Task Force (JTF) said the incident involved an ex-soldier, Joseph. It also said it was shocked because none of their sectors on patrol in the Bulabuli-Ngaranaram area heard any gunshot that led to the killing of the other three.

In another incident, barely an hour after the Caretaker Chairman of Jere Local Government Area, Alhaji Mustapaha Ba’ale, was shot dead in his house in Maiduguri by suspected members of Boko Haram, the group was alleged to have bombed another local drinking joint in the town leaving several persons dead and many injured.

Although the casualty figure could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report, but accounts revealed that many persons were killed in the blast, which occurred right in the middle of the usually congested drinking joint.

One of the witnesses said five persons were already dead and that many others were rushed to the hospital.

Confirming the attack, JTF spokesman, Col. Victor Ebhaleme, told journalists on phone that “we have just got the report; we are on our way there, and we will get back to you”.

A witness, Mallam Abdullahi, who spoke on phone with journalists, said: “The bomb went off right in the middle of the Wulari Mammy market, near one Jummai Watanda shop. It is a popular joint within Wulari market.”

He added that he saw the security people evacuating the victims - some dead and many wounded.

”We saw soldiers open fire on a Volkswagen Golf car that they asked to stop but refused to stop... We really don’t have the full picture of happenings there because the soldiers have cordoned off the whole area,” he said.

Ebhaleme said: “It was gathered that the Boko Haram gunmen now resort to muffling their guns with pillow-foams so that the sound will not be heard by anyone.”

He added that some suspected members of the sect were arrested yesterday morning following a tip-off and they were undergoing interrogation.

In the attack on Ba’ale, it was learnt that he was killed in his house around 4pm.

According to witnesses, the deceased council boss, who was appointed by Governor Kashim Shettima two weeks ago, was attacked in his Madinatu house in Old Maiduguri by unknown gunmen who opened fire on him and left him dead.

JTF officials confirmed the incident to journalists at about 4.35p.m, also yesterday.

The Chief of Staff to Governor Kashim Shettima, Hon. Abubakar Kyari, also confirmed the development on phone.

Although details of the killing remained sketchy, news of the incident went round the state capital and outside that the popular politician who represented Jere State constituency in the last House of Assembly, and contested and lost the House of Representatives election for the same area on the platform of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) had been killed by the fundamentalists.

The death of Ba’ale, who was in his early 50s, added to the list of prominent individuals killed by the group including Awana Ali Ngala (ANPP Vice-Chairman, North-east), Modu Fannami Gubio (former ANPP gubernatorial candidate) and Abba Anas El-Kanemi (the brother of Shehu of Borno).

In a related development, detachments of security agencies were at the weekend dispatched to secure the Jamata Bridge on River Niger, along Lokoja-Abuja Road and Itobe Bridge, linking Ajaokuta with the Eastern flank of Kogi State following intelligence reports that Boko Haram was planning to detonate bombs on the bridges linking the West and East to the Northern parts of Nigeria.

While confirming the presence of security agents at the bridges, the Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi, said it was part of proactive arrangement by the command to forestall any form of security breach. He assured citizens that Kogi State was not under any security threat.

“Security in Kogi is not under any threat. The security presence you noticed is part of proactive arrangement by the command to forestall any security breach,” he said.

However, a highly placed security officer, who confided in journalists, revealed that all security formations had been put on alert so as to prevent the state from attack and prevent the Boko Haram from settling down there.

According to him, following the clampdown on the Boko Haram up North, members of the sect were believed to be planning to infiltrate Kogi, Nassarawa and Niger States.

Making Nigeria a base for their war against Europe and America. Please we are crying out to you, NATO we need your help as quickly as possible.

  • One wonders what is becoming of Nigeria with the serious threats to security and lives without any coincise step taken to arrest the situation before it gets to its magnitude. There had been cases of arms and ammunition shipments into the country the investigation result of which remained in the cooler till today. Or how many years would it take before the perpetrators would be brought to book? It needs speedy trial and judgement because of its nature. There had been series of bombings here and there in the country with loss of lives and properties of which the security headquarters was not spared. Yet both the legislative and the executive arms of the government are still to wake up from their sleeps to address the security issues with the urgency it demands. When the US government placed Nigeria on Terriorist Watch List on the eve of Murtallab's failed mission to bomb US plane sometimes in 2009 were we not in a haste to condem the US government's act? Has the US not been vindicated of its action with all that are happening now? Why are we shying away from the truth? What steps is the Nigeria government taking to arrest the ugly situation which is really getting out of hand? Mr. President, it is high time the issue of security is taken with all seriousness please, afterall you are the commander in chief of the armed forces. If this Britain security report is anything to be taken serious then we need to start putting our house in order with military dispatch, please. Enough of debates on this issue by or our law makers. We cannot wait to see decisive actions being taken please because those perpetrating these acts have murdered sleep and they do n't deserve to sleep any more.

  • A man will die of one thing.but death by bomb isn't what anyone will readily settle for.our president is meek and gentle who can only bark,but not bite.should we wait for Boko Haram,to turn Nigeria to Yemen or Afghan before the West do something?the western war should know that,protecting Nigeria is indirectly protecting themselves,because if this Boko Haram is allowed to succeed,the western world too will know no peace.As for our president,let him be busy appointing ministers and special advisers...the handwriting is on the wall.Lord send us a Messiah!

  • I used to pray for Nigeria progress but since this year I changed my prayer request, the country should divide into 3 parts ( Northern Nigeria) ( south east) and ( south south & south west) . It's high time we stop pretending, there is no single gain being united Nigeria but retrogression, corruption, poverty, bombing. Countries that are less than 5 million are all moving forward, all our bad leaders past and present that are gaining from the unholy marriage called Nigeria always get angry when ever they hear the word '' divide Nigeria" they feel irritated, they see the word as cancer, if we don't divide 50 years to come, Nigeria will remain the same, stories every day without progress

  • You guys commenting on this story should see all the irrelevant things put together! How can this be called journalism? It was this type of fake intelligence that was used by the US to invade Iraq in 2003. When your so-called saviours come to Nigeria in the name of Al-Qaeda, they would come to seize control of Nigerian oil. I recommend that you read Segun Adeniyi's analysis of the Boko Haram problem and identify it for what it is - a political rather than religious problem. In the name of saving civilians in Libya, look at what NATO has turned that country into!

  • Well, if our leaders refuse to take the issue of security serious, they should remember that a child who will never allow the mother to sleep will not equally see sleep. May be the next bombing will be national assembly when all of them are in sessions. It is time to take proactive action and stop Boko- haram /Al-Qaeda group in Nigeria from killing innocent citizens. After all, our corrupt leaders caused all this mess as a result of their greediness and bad leadership that brought us high rate of poverty, unemployment, bad roads, power failure which they are now ripping the reward. May God have mercy and save us in this nation.

  • I pity many of us that has been clamoring NATO to come and help Nigeria... NATO has absolutely no help nor any protection to offer us but add to the ruins. Does it mean that upon all these ungodly acts of this satanic sect called Boko Haram, our security men are still in their deep sleep ? My sugestion is, if those animals wishes to separate or remove the North from Nigeria, let them go so that we may have peace. All these never happened, the Westerns are looking down on us. Nigerians, I think the time has finally come that the animals wants to separate themselves for human begins... Even in Saudi Arabia where the religion emanated, there are so many Saudi citizens that are Professors, Engineers, Doctors and so on and I doubt how they could have attained such heights without the Western education... !

  • Why would any right thinking Nigerian be calling for International help. They have better things to do. They should stay in their countries and mind their business. The Federal government should tell JTF to vacate Niger Delta and relocate to the north, we don't want them any more.

  • I am duly in support for the call for the division of Nigeria which will enable the North destroy themselves as they wish since they don't want the cooperate existence of the country. Also Christians from all works of life should rise up and fight for their faith and lives. We can't afford to allow these miscreants in the name of boko haram to intimidate, harrass and kill Christians without any question raised.

  • Don't ever get it it twisted folks. The only hand writing on the wall is the same old tactics used by western powers to divide and rule lesser civillizations or 3rd world. I agree that there are fundamental religious issues in Nigeria that need to be sorted asap but we must not make the same mistakes our forefathers made with the west. One thing that we need to understand is that paramount to the west is their interest. I live in the UK and i know categorically that there is absolutely no truth in this stupid intel that has been written about. There are domestic political issues with the number of Nigerians living in the UK without papers, be that as it may, I believe the Nigerian government needs to step up its game regarding security. For all those calling on the west to come and sort out our domestic problems, you are short of understanding of the interest of America and the UK in Nigeria. Look at what is happening in the Arab world and you will understand that America, Britain or any other foreign power can not sort our problems for us, we are the ones to sort our problems. Britain and America and the EU are broke economically now. Every threat to their way of life is coming to fore and believe me when i say the only thing they know how to do is to cause trouble in resourceful nations, enter it and steal their resources to keep their own way of life steady. We must not allow them to scare us and give them access to our resources for the sake of our security. That is what they are about and that is what they will always be. Our security chiefs should be more concerned about enemies without than enemies within because the enemies within are known, those we do not know are the real enemies without.

  • The phobia is spreading to Nigeria. The restless youths without jobs are being labelled different names. What were the MEND referred to when they demanded larger share of Oil Money? Hmmm....the propaganda machine is hitting my country harder now. As anyone bother to google search the sole called Al-qeada website? Its all fantasy in a daydream. Try google search the Al-qeada website that all these claims of support for restless Northern youths to kill Christians are coming from to prove me wrong. Its pathetic that even our journalists are far behind and doesn't really know what article benefits Nigeria and which one does not....they have not taking few seconds to see the alleged Al-qeada website to find out but they have taking strainous efforts to writing this long mis-informing essays. Al-qaeda website is all myth...like building castles in the air. Ignorant Nigerians are inviting NATO to come and turn them into slave once again after independent. Have you checked out what NATO is doing in Libya....Deterring AU called for cease fire and diplomatic solutions to the stalemate? NATO will only loot Nigeria resources...and mind you Capitalists show no remorse in KILLING...they refer to it as COLLATERAL DAMAGE.

Is this not a call to death instead of serve as we all know that the target of this inhumane people are these youth corpers. the government should please guide this youth with all they have or better still withdraw them from this death trap they are about to head into tomorrow. there is still time. Help save some parents of the agony and pain that will come after when some of them are killed by this crazy people or how else would one explain it.
    The government should please seek help from outside if need be as it seems that they security agencies are unable to provide any clear-cut strategy on how they intend to tackle these people. i pray that they Lord helps us as we fight together against this terrorist

IS THERE ANY ATTACK ON ANY CHRISTIAN THE PERSON MUST HAVE BEEN A SECURITY MAN OR SOMEONE THEY BELIEVE IS AGAINST THEM. Christians have not known to be attacked simply by being Christians! JERY GANA was one of the persons who stood as surety for Mohd Yusuf the Boko Haram leader in court before his death. All this is an agenda by a group to break up Nigeria. GOODLUCK to them!

  • This is the price you pay when individuals are stronger than institutions. It is unfortunate that it is the resources of this country that these individuals used to make themselves strong. Now they are using the same resources to destroy this country. Why must it be under Goodluck administration that this is happening? Are there people that prefer this country destroyed to Goodluck being in power? Are there people that prefer our resources wasted on avoidable security challenges to development of infrastructures? Mr President, please come out of your shell and act; carry out in-house cleansing of the security network and weed out the bad elements; step on toes if you must, we need peace.
    If it is not possible, let us re-negotiate our stay in this entity called Nigeria. God help Nigeria.
