Nigeria update

News of two bombs carried by suicide females, one at the Mr Big fast food outlet in the centre of Jos, the busiest part, and at a church in Masalacin Juma’a Street.  BBC World carried this news today with the added info that non-Muslilm youths went on the rampage killing any they thought were Muslim with the cry if BH can do these things without the Government doing anything they would do the same back.  Bishop Kwashi was interviewed on that web page also expressing grave concern about these developments.  Jos has already become a divided city with a lot of hatred and suspicion on both sides.  BH have admitted the bombings.
On Wed two female bombers detonated their bombs at Kantin Kwari Market in Kano killing 4. Another explosion was reported  nearby in Kano.
A heavy transport plane got into trouble and did an emergency landing in Kano on 6/12 and was detained.  It was loaded with bullets, arms, bullet proof vests and a chopper.  It was suspected,  to have come from Russia and destined for N’Djamena in Tchad.  One Alhaji Modu Sherif former governor of Borno, accused of sponsoring BH was seen at the airport demanding the release of the plane.
Also on the 6th gunmen attacked Minna prison in Niger state, shot one warder and injured another.  They freed 270 inmates but some were later arrested.
On the 4th, at a primary school near NITEL in Jos (not far from Hillcrest if that’s so) an improvised bomb using gas cylinders failed to go off. 
On the 2nd Fulani jihadist group attacked the Ashige village of Koro people in Lafia East LGA killing 14 people.
A female suicide bomber was caught in Maiduguri - she later confessed to BH having trained 50 young girls with a mission to kill 100,000 people in December.  What has happened since seems to be bearing this out but we need to pray for the Lord’s intervention, especially over the Christmas period when Churches will be packed.

But in the midst of it all, we still hold on in prayer for Nigeria, praying for the brethren and Nigeria as a whole, believing that the Lord is still in working, so there is hope.
