The BBC buried the lede. The BBC's last sentence should be the lede: "fighting to establish Islamic law in Nigeria and has killed more than 1,000 people in numerous attacks across northern and central areas this year." Boko Haram (Arabic translation "books bad" or "Western education is haram") is the devout Muslim group on a jihad to impose the shari'a in Nigeria.
Nigerian gunmen kill Mubi students BBC
At least 20 people, mostly students, have been killed by unknown gunmen in Mubi, north-eastern Nigeria, officials say. Most of the dead are said to have attended the Federal Polytechnic Mubi. A college spokesman said 26 students had been killed, while a local resident told the BBC that more than 40 people had been shot dead or stabbed.
The killings come days after a major operation against the Boko Haram militant group in the town.
National Emergency Management Agency spokesman Yushua Shuaib told the Reuters news agency that it was not clear whether the attack was the work of Boko Haram, or the result of a dispute between rival political groups at the university. A Red Cross official said at least 10 people had died, reports the AFP news agency.
BBC Nigeria correspondent Will Ross says mobile phone masts in the area were recently attacked by the militants, so getting information from Mubi is difficult.
'Everybody is scared'
A resident, who did not want his name to be used, told the BBC's Hausa service that men in military uniform went to a hall of residence away from the campus just before midnight, got the students out of their rooms and ordered them to say their names. Some were then shot dead and others stabbed with knives, and their bodies left in lines outside the buildings.

They’ll eventually do that here, too - if we let them. If we re-elect one of their brothers.
So what’s the problem here? Most likely, those murdered handled a koran without wearing white gloves or something. Give the peace-loving moozlums a break. People need to stop taunting and disrespecting them. The moozlums are blameless for indiscriminately murdering nonmoozlums...aren’t they????
And if our congresscritters continue to stay mute.
Savages killing people who don’t want to be savages.
If they had Christian names, these young people were murdered by Muslims. The good part is that the Christians are enjoying Heaven with Jesus today. The Muslims will burn in Hell.
I’ve already decided I’m gonna try and primary both of my Georgia Senators because they are quisling appeasers who have to be mightily bitch-slapped by the constiuency constantly when the fall off the wagon.
I am not at liberty to say what needs to be done.
I am free to speak out as to what needs to be said: Islam is a blight on humankind, and like a cancer, needs to be eliminated from the planet Earth. To the last person.
Actions will take the place of words.
Islam creates murderers.
Mohammed was a Child Rapist.
Islam is like a rabid dog and needs the same treatment. Just sayin.
The news is not all bad, although our spineless congresscritters have nothing to do with it.
Notice these heroic people. Imagine the danger that they are in:
