Islamic Terrorist Bases Raided in Nigerian Cities of Jos, Kano
Military responds to attacks by Boko Haram extremists on churches, other sites.

By Michael Ireland
Senior International Correspondent, ASSIST News Service

JOS, NIGERIA (ANS) -- The Nigerian military's discovery of a Muslim terrorist base full of ammunition and explosives in Jos, Nigeria, on Saturday (May 19) refutes Islamist claims that Christians have been bombing their own churches, a local pastor said.

According to Compass Direct News (CDN), an intensive three-day search by Nigeria's Special Military Task Force found four Improvised Explosive Devices, along with 19 other explosive devices.

Compass reports that in northern Nigeria's Kano state, Nigerian forces killed a suspected Islamist militant in a raid on May 1 following Boko Haram's April 29 attack on worship at Bayero University, where 19 people reportedly died from bomb blast and gunfire. Two of those killed in the attacks were professors.

Compass goes on to say that a Catholic church held a memorial service on May 11 for the 10 Catholics slain at the university.

The Rev. Emefiena Ezeani, who had just finished conducting mass at his parish when he heard about the attack, said too many people are refusing to acknowledge that churches are as much primary targets of Boko Haram as police, government and media facilities.

"Has Boko Haram, thanks to their being truthful, not made it unequivocally clear that their ultimate intention is to Islamize the whole of Nigeria? I am worried by the disturbing and deafening silence," he said.

Compass also reports that that authorities said an attack in Maiduguri, in the northeastern state of Borno, was related to the Kano assault as it took place on the same day, April 29.

Suspected Boko Haram militants reportedly charged into a Church of Christ in Nigeria service and began firing as the congregation was about to take communion.

Witnesses reportedly said that when congregation members who escaped later returned, they found the pastor dead along with four other slain worshippers.
