At Least 50 Dead In Nigeria Blasts


316571-nigeriablastThree explosions in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Saturday 7th march 2015 killed 50 people and injured more than 30, said a senior hospital official in the Borno state capital.
“We’ve received 50 dead bodies from the blast scenes and 36 injured people. The state government has directed the treatment for the injured persons to be free,” Salisu Kwaya Bura, Chief Medical Officer of Borno Specialists Hospital, told reporters.



  1. My sincere condolences to the bereaved. My deepest sympathy to the President and the good people of Nigeria. May God grant the bereaved families, the leadership, and the nation the fortitude to bear the irreparable losses.

    Terrorists and insurgents bombs do not select its victims on the basis of tribe, religion, or political affiliation. Suicide bombing is aimed at inflicting maximum damage on the nation: to destroy as many lives as possible, cripple the economy, create fear, insecurity, and instability in the polity, and discredit the government.

    Nigerians must give unalloyed support to its government and the military in the fight against terrorism.

    Boko Haram hopes for a regime change in Nigeria in the forth coming Presidential elections. Unfortunately the opposition is playing into the hands of the terrorist by threatening to set up a parallel government should President Goodluck win the election even if fairly. Such will create anarchy, instability, and effectively weaken the current military onslaught against Boko Haram. Such a scenario will create a leadership vacuum, and allow Boko Haram to expand its campaign of terrorism, and to establish an Islamic caliphate in North east Nigeria that will be an extension of ISIS. This portends grave political, religious, economic and military danger to the West African sub region. The Western powers who are sympathetic to Boko Haram and the opposition should re evaluate the far reaching consequences of a weakened Nigeria government

    Even though I am not a card carrying member of PDP, I think President Goodluck Jonathan is doing a good job in the fight against the insurgents. This is not the best of times to advocate a regime change in Nigeria. Moreover, Mohammadu Buhari does not have the intellectual capacity, or the diplomatic savvy to build a multi national military alliance to prosecute a war of this magnitude. Posterity will not forgive the present generation of Nigerians if they vote for for a 73 year old, anti democratic coupist who rubbished the will of the electorates in 1983. A nation of 170 million people deserves a better deal than a known extremist.
