Just another day in an Islamic hellhole.
(AFP) — Suspected Islamists hurled bombs and fired on a beer garden in the northern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, killing at least 25 people and injuring about 30.
The two men came on motorbikes and sped away after the shock attack, police and witnesses told AFP.
“The attackers, believed to be Boko Haram members, threw bombs and fired indiscriminate gun shots on a packed tavern at Dala Kabompi neighbourhood, killing at least 25 people and seriously injuring around 30 others,” a police superintendent said.
An army captain, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said: “It will be difficult to say with precision the number of casualties, but it can’t be less then two dozen.”
Emmanuel Okon, who sells roast beef on the fringes of the tavern, said: “I just heard a loud bang followed by sporadic shootings and plumes of black smoke filled the area with people screaming and running in all directions.
