Suspected members of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, yesterday evening attacked the Bauchi  central prison and set the place ablaze and freed members of the sect who were jailed there following last year’s unrest. Other prisoners were also reportedly released by the sect members.

The prison is close to the palace, and the emir of Bauchi, Muhammadu Rilwanu Suleyman Adamu, reportedly went into hiding shortly after the start of the exchange of gunfire between the assailants, men of the Nigeria police force and prison guards.

Panic

People in the adjoining communities fled their homes shortly after the attack on the prison. Confirming the attack, the Bauchi State police commissioner Danlami Yar’Adua told a foreign news agency that ”the Bauchi central prison was attacked this evening by people believed to be members of Boko Haram in an attempt to free their comrades,” he said, adding “They arrived at the prison and began shooting sporadically to gain access, but we deployed our anti-riot policemen, who engaged them and contained the situation.”

Reports out of Bauchi however say the attackers succeeded in freeing the inmates, and at the time of going to press, sporadic shots could still be heard around the town.

The attack comes after a recent spate of deadly shootings in states across the region which have been blamed on members of the sect who have allegedly been regrouping and stocking-up weapons in a bid to launch another major attack.

Boko Haram which means “Western education is a sin” launched an attack in July 2009 calling for Sharia law to be imposed on the entire country. A military onslaught by the Nigeria army led to the killing of over 700 members of the group including the leader Muhammed Yusuf.

Mr Yusuf’s death in police custody generated a lot of controversy.

This is what happens when people manipulate the masses through poverty and religious brainwashing to suit their selfish political ends. Is Nigeria the only country with Moslems? Go to Dubai and see hard core Moslems living the good life that would make all these successful celebrities in the western world green with envy BUT in Nigeria? Na suffer suffer dem want because they are all brainwashed and now, these retarded zombies who have been poverty stricken from childhood cannot be controlled.
agree with u man!t he sad thing is dat this idiots dnt even seek for the right knowlegdge and comit all forms of atrocities ind name of religion.

The biggest question is what are their goals??? Western Education is a sin??? and why should the Sharia law be imposed in the entire country??

Very sad.

they are humans, so are the ones killed during the clash. Why have humans degenerated to this very low level?

Lack of indept thinking or lack of love I'll say.

why?

Did anyone see an inquest when these guys where demostrating and the military shot them dead? No!!

Did anyone ask why they where killed because they had radical ideas? NO!!

has anyone ever recognised how difficult it is to protest for your right in nigeria? Yes am sure.

So why do we criticize without first understanding that every human has a right to live.

Why should some not take the laws into their own hands and try to free their unjudged jailed brothers?

I am not saying what they did is right. But do you think, the army going again to kill these off will make things better? No, i thought so too.

Nigeria is a lawless country. It is so, not because the people are animals, illitrates, and savages. The country is governed by europeans, who have black cult animals controlling and creating a chaotic environment where the average human will have to become a vicious animal to get what ever he/she wants.

If you have a good heart and want good will and peace, we need to combat the dictatorship of the government and their military. Everyone should get their rightful say in an assembly. The police, have no direction, they need to be protecting the people and getting paid for it by the government.

how can hungry men learn seating in classrooms? What do you expect?

God will inculcate the habit of peace to them, they think what they are doing is right, which is totally wrong, May Allah increase there patients and lead them to right way. But this is totally bad.
