Boko Haram gunmen have shot dead no fewer than 25 people in a part of eastern Nigeria, the BBC reports, quoting local sources on Saturday.
The “eastern Nigeria” reported turned out to be villages in Adamawa State in the north-east.
Readers of the news mentioning “eastern Nigeria” thought it happened in the south-east as a reaction to opposition by mainly south-east indigenes against the relocation of Boko Haram detainees to a prison in Anambra State.
The villages attacked were Kopa, Yaffa and Maikadiri in Adamawa State.
The objective of Boko Haram, of course, is to provoke a civil war in Nigeria. The evil sect has killed about 20, 000 innocent people since 2009. They are neither Muslims nor Christians. President Muhammadu Buhari said they are godless and far away from Islam.
