Boko Haram’s ‘deadliest massacre’: over 2000 children, women, elderly- all dead in Nigeria

Jan 11, 2015 — In two days, it would be 273 days since 273 young secondary school girls were taken from the safety of their boarding school and families. It would also be one week since over 2000 children, women, men and elderly people were massacred in a town called Baga, in the north-eastern part of Nigeria (400km from Chibok where the girls were kidnapped in April); and two days since a 10 year old girl who was strapped with a bomb, blew up in a busy market, killing 20 people and leaving many others injured.

International reports have it that hundreds of bodies – too many to count – remain strewn in the bush in Nigeria from the extremist attack in Baga that Amnesty International described as the “deadliest massacre” in the history of Boko Haram. For over five days, Baga and 16 other nearby villages were pillaged and burnt to the ground by members of the Boko Haram sect.

The response of the Nigerian government to this issue has been poor as the country is preparing for political elections. In less than five weeks, it’s citizen would be voting for their next set of leaders. It would seem that there is a real war going on in Nigeria, but only the Nigerians aren’t fully aware of this fact. Too many innocent lives are being lost because actions that must be taken are not being implemented…these mounting issues are not being addressed as priority.

That is why we need to keep demanding that world leaders get involved, they must pressure and collaborate with the Nigerian government to strategize and undertake the necessary steps that would bring this persistent terror and bloodshed to an end!
We ask the government to take action! We ask the world to take action!

  1. The likes of Boko Haram can only survive in an apathetic world. Our resolve to protect the innocent must be stronger than BH’s resolve to destroy.

      I’m so disappointed. I didn’t know what to expect from the Nigerian government. They are so corrupt and the people are losing hope. It is so heartbreaking to think about a mother who’s daughter was kidnapped by terrorist. They have been used as a bargaining chip yet BoKo Haram always comes out better off. I pray for the girls and families everyday. Terrorist are taking over more territory and it’s scary to look ahead.
      Thanks for the comments.
