Boko Haram Muslim terrorists in Nigeria tie up 15 Christians, including children, then slit their throats

Gunmen suspected to belong to a radical Islamist sect attacked a village in northeast Nigeria, tying up men, women and children before slitting their throats, killing at least 15 in the troubled region’s latest attack, witnesses said Saturday.

The Boko Haram militants targeted Christians, breaking into their homes, grouping the men, women and children.

The gunmen shouted religious slogans and later ordered those there to be gathered up into a group, said Mshelia Inusa, a primary school teacher in the village.

“We heard some people chanting, ‘God is great, God is great’ amid sounds of banging on doors of houses at about 1 a.m.,” the teacher said. “A voice was heard ordering people to be slaughtered and also voices of children were heard screaming.”

Inusa said he and others later saw corpses with their hands tied behind their backs and their throats cut.

A guard said he counted at least 15 bodies being brought into the facility’s morgue. (The guard spoke on condition of anonymity out of fears of angering either the military or the sect.)

Violence linked to Boko Haram’s insurgency in northern and central Nigeria has left some 3,000 people dead since 2009, including killings by the security forces.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation and largest oil producer, is roughly divided between a mainly Muslim north and predominately Christian south.
