    The Boko Haram Islamic sect has
    made good its threat to attack
    Southerners living in the North as
    no fewer than 20 people from
    both the Igbo and Yoruba
    extractions were murdered in
    Mubi, Adamawa State between
    Thursday night and yesterday.
    Eight other people, including six
    Christian worshippers, were killed
    and several others wounded in a
    Deeper Life Church in Gombe
    State just as an 80 year- old
    father, Musa Darkuwa and his
    son, Usman were killed in
    Maiduguri, capital of Borno State
    on Thursday night, bringing the
    number of those killed by
    suspected members of the sect in
    the two states within the period
    to about 30.
    Wife of the Pastor Johnson Jauro
    of the Deeper Life Church was
    among those killed in the attack,
    even as two other victims in the
    state were killed in a hotel in the
    metropolis.Governor Ibrahaim
    Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe
    has always expressed shock over
    the mayhem unleashed on the
    Deeper Life Church.
    The governor who visited the
    church yesterday in company of
    the State CAN Chairman,
    Reverend Abare Kalla, and many
    other state dignitaries, directed
    security agents to fish out the
    perpetrators of the crime, noting
    that the development was alien
    to Gombe.
    Also, in what looked like a
    reprisal attack over the killings of
    Southerners by Boko Haram,
    enraged youths numbering about
    2000 and armed with axes,
    cutlasses and other dangerous
    weapons yesterday went on
    rampage in Sapele, sacking and
    inflicting injuries on about 50
    Muslims at the Hausa Quarters in
    the local government.
    Two mosques were torched
    during the crises, as the Chief
    Imam of Sapele Central Mosque,
    Alhaji Mohammed Usman
    condemned the incident. Two
    persons suspected to have carried
    out the attacks were however
    arrested by the police in Sapele.
    Saturday Vanguard gathered that
    the killing in Mubi started
    Thursday night when gunmen
    suspected to be members of the
    Boko Haram killed three
    It was learnt that while relatives
    of those killed the previous day
    gathered yesterday to discuss
    modalities for conveying their
    corpses to their respective states
    for burials, the same gunmen
    swooped on them and started
    shooting sporadically killing 12
    people on the spot and wounding
    over 30 others, thus bringing the
    number of those killed in Mubi
    alone to 15.
    Those wounded were said to be
    receiving  treatment in various
    hospitals in the  state.  An
    Information Officer in Mubi told
    Saturday Vanguard that tension
    was seriously mounting in the
    town as Igbo traders had closed
    their shops in solidarity with their
    slain colleagues. He said attempts
    by the Igbo to retaliate the
    killings of their kits and kins was
    being hampered by the heavy
    security presence in the town.
    However, Governor Ibrahim
    Hassan Dankwambo who visited
    the church in company of the
    State CAN Chairman, Reverend
    Abare Kalla and many other state
    dignitaries, directed security
    agents to make sure that they
    fish out the perpetrators of the
    crime and the cause which he
    said was alien to Gombe.
    The Governor who condemned
    the attack of a place of worship
    and the killing of worshippers
    however stated that the incident
    has challenged the government
    to step up measures for the
    continued peaceful co-existence
    of the people in the state, even
    as he tasked the people to
    henceforth seek security help and
    advise before embarking on an
    overnight church activity.
    He acknowledged that the
    location of the church was known
    to be a den for criminals and
    hoodlums also promised free
    medical treatment for those still
    receiving treatment while also
    promising that Government would
    take care of the burial rites of
    those that lost their lives in the
