Suspected Boko Haram members on Sunday killed 15 Christians by slitting their throats in Chibok, Borno state.
According to Mohammed Kana, a regional official for the National Emergency Management Agency, gunmen entered a church in Chibok and killed at least 15 worshipers.
“Some of the people had their throats slit,” Kana said, citing NEMA staff who responded to the scene.
According to a relief officer, the attackers killed the victims in their homes.
“From the information we gathered, the attackers broke into selected homes and slaughtered 15 people in their sleep,” the relief official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak publicly.
Nigerian authorities tend to under-report death tolls however, and the relief official’s information matched up with that of residents, who spoke of 15 people having their throats slit.
Speaking of the victims, the relief official said “they included one traffic warden and 14 civilians. The victims were selected because they were all Christians, some of whom had moved into the neighbourhood from other parts of the city hit by Boko Haram attacks.”
Residents said they suspected the attackers were from Boko Haram.
“The attackers came in and silently went into homes whose residents were all Christians and slit the throats of their victims. They killed 15 people,” one resident said.
Sunday’s violence comes six days after attackers raided two churches during Christmas Eve services, killing 12 people.

Well I hope the Kaduna re known preacher Dr. A. Gummi might have read the assassination story launched against the christian by the Islamist group which he denied in peoples daily newspaper of last week Friday but in turn was blaming Christians for all the attacks. This is clear evidence that even a way ward Christian would never think of committing such dastardly act. because of his upbringing. We have conscience and feelings that our christian religion teach us to love and pray even for our enemies and those who hunger to kill us, no matter how bad the situation, God sees and knows everything even with what ever intention we carry out lives activities. Therefore, we trust that no one can help God or even show him what and how to or please him in any situation to win his favor. He is not mortal, corrupt or vile. God's reasoning is not like man's who is futile. Thus, we should not be deceived God is not mocked for whatever you saw that shall you reap, moreover God said in his Holy Bible, Vengeance is mine I'll repay. Those who fight for worldly possession and power have placed their mind on such, but for the christian, this world is not our own, we are looking for a better country where there will be peace and love and care for one another. We are looking for a country where the builder and maker is God almighty. I believe whatever the Islamist and their cohorts are doing God sees and surely there is a day of vengeance, it is just a matter of time.
For the Christian be of Good cheer!
