A Nigerian local office said that Islamist militants gun down 18 people in Damboa,  "a northeastern town for hunting animals forbidden by Islam."

 

Reuters reorted that, " Gunmen killed 18 people at a market in northern Nigeria where local hunters were selling bush meat from animals like monkeys and pigs, which strict Muslims are forbidden to eat, a local official said. Officials said they believed that the attack in the town of Damboa was carried out by members of the militant Islamist sect Boko Haram. In a separate attack in Kano, gunmen on motorcycles, believed to be Boko Haram members, killed five people playing an outdoor board game, presumably for gambling, witnesses said".

 

Bloomberg reorted, "Nigeria, Africa’s largest oil producer and most populous nation, is battling an insurgency by Boko Haram that has killed hundreds of people since 2009. The group, which wants to establish an Islamic state in Nigeria, has carried out bomb and gun attacks in the mainly Muslim north and Abuja. Nigeria’s more than 160 million people are almost evenly split between the north and a largely Christian south."
