More sad news from Nigeria

On Saturday/Sunday night gunmen entered the house of a retired Police officer, a Mr Jonathan in Barakin Ladi in Plateau St. killing 7 of the family.  Only a little girl survived but had a gun shot in her leg so was taken to hospital.  The motive was not clear.  Then on Monday evening a Fulani man tried to walk through a mob who were shouting but was lynched,  In reprisal a Moslem Hausa man invited a motor mechanic, a Berom man, to his house to repair his motor cycle.  He and two other Berom men were later found dead.  it was a sad tit for tat killing but it shows how much society is like a tinder box.

Joint Forces  announced that they had taken back the town of Damasak in Borno St quite near the northern border with Niger.Coalition forces claim they have retaken over 30 towns from Boko Haram control.  

However, today, Tuesday 10, another suicide bomber killed himself and 17 others in Monday Market in Maiduguri.
