"Suspected Islamic sect members attacked the drinking joint and killed eight people, four of whom were policemen," Yobe state police commissioner Tanko Lawal told Reuters news agency.

Reports said the gunmen fled on a motorcycle after the late-night attack in the town of Potiskum. A seven-year-old child was also among the victims, police said.

Southerners, who are mostly Christians or animists, have recently been the targets of attacks by Boko Haram, which operates in the mainly Muslim north.

Yobe is one of the states where the government has declared a state of emergency following an upsurge in violence by the Islamist group.

The shooting followed an attack on a mosque and an Islamic school in the southern city of Benin.

Five people were killed and six injured, a Nigerian Red Cross spokesman told the BBC.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon discussed the increasing sectarian violence with Nigeria's Foreign Minister Olugbenga Ashiru on Tuesday.

The meeting followed the release of a UN report that highlighted "growing concern in the region" about possible links between Boko Haram and al-Qaeda's affiliate in North Africa, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (Aqim).

 those who commit
these barbaric acts are
criminals, not “martyrs.”
The Qur’an, Islam’s
revealed text, states:
"Whoever kills a person
[unjustly]…it is as
though he has killed all
mankind. And whoever
saves a life, it is as
though he had saved all
mankind." (Qur’an, 5:32)

Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run.

"unjust"...

Bro, unjust killing as far as Qur`an is concered applies when a Muslem is killed. The Qur`an makes it explicitely clear that any one who is not a muslin is an alien and the killing of aliens is an automatic ticket to heaven. It goes further urgen Muslems not to retire untill the whol world has been purified of these aliens.

Let`s leave Qur`an and Bible out of this and face reality based on individual socio-psychological convictions and life oriented ideologies regardless of sources. Let`s analyse reality comparatively and normatively seeking sincerely elasting solution to the problems of this `quasi-continent` called Nigeria
