DAMATURU, Nigeria (AP) -- Nigeria's Islamic extremists chose open-air praying grounds for suicide bombings Friday, one of the holiest days of the Muslim calendar.

Nigerians who usually turn out in their finest robes to pray on the holiday stayed home in fear in Damaturu and Gombe town, where 50 people shopping for the holiday at the main market died in two bomb blasts late Thursday night, according to the National Emergency Management Agency.

Nigeria's homegrown Boko Haram extremist group has used many women and girl bombers in recent weeks, raising fears the insurgents are turning some of their hundreds of captives into weapons. A military bomb disposal expert has told The Associated Press that almost all the female bombers are strapped with explosives that are remotely detonated.
...
But Nigerians are weary of the military's promises to halt the 6-year-old insurgency that has killed more than 13,000 people. Amnesty International puts the toll at some 20,000 to include 8,000 people it charges have died in military detention - some shot, some of untreated wounds from torture, others just starving or asphyxiated to death in overcrowded cells.
"Our military keep making promises and the bombs keep exploding. I'm tired," one Nigerian woman wrote on Twitter.

N'DJAMENA, Chad (AP) - Suicide bombers on motorcycles simultaneously attacked two buildings including the national police academy in Chad's capital on Monday, killing at least 23 people and wounding more than 100 others, witnesses said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but suspicion quickly fell on Boko Haram, the Islamic militant group based in neighboring Nigeria that already has attacked Chadian villages along the lake dividing the two countries.
Chad has been a major military ally with Nigeria in the fight against the insurgent group.

The reader should please pardon me if I sound a bit preachy and personal this morning. With the Ramadan fasting period here, the reader, I am sure, will understand, if not pardon, my preachiness today. I will like to start with a little introduction of an organisation based in Kaduna of which I am the chairman. I will like to start with a little introduction of an organisation based in Kaduna of which I am the chairman.
...
Vision Trust Foundation, VTF, was founded eight years or so ago at the initiative, as far as I can recall, of Alhaji Falalu Bello, Sarkin Bai Zazzau and Alhaji Ahmed Dasuki.
...
I took over as its chairman when he moved on to advise the Vice-President.
...
VTF was also concerned about the educational and economic backwardness of the region as well as the relative backwardness of Muslims in all parts of the country.
...
One of the small but practical steps we first took towards achieving our objectives was to start a micro-credit scheme and a motor-cycle ownership scheme for victims of the religious riots of February and May, 2000. Long before then we had agonized about what to do regarding the use of unemployed youth on all sides of our political and religious divides to foment the kind of violence that had changed Kaduna from being arguably the most accommodating city in the country into one hell-hole of religious riots.
...
At the end of the workshop, we received about N5,800,000 (Five million, eight hundred thousand Naira only) in cash, cheques and pledges from Kaduna State government, the Vice-President, business groups, the British-American Tobacco Nigeria, Foundation (BATN,F) and individuals including the chairman of the occasion, Alhaji Ismaila Isa Funtua.

...
BATN,F, represented by its General Manager, Mr. Folu Koku, offered to train twelve youths on computer and secretarial studies at a private computer school.
...
As at last month, we had a total of about N3,500,000 in our kitty for the project, with the balance of about N1,300,000 still outstanding as pledges. Out of the N3,500,000, we have spent over N3,450,000 to train 112 youths (including the 12 sponsored by BATN,F) in computer skills in Kaduna Polytechnic and at a private computer school.

Needless to say, if all of us in positions to do something about society's problems can commit ourselves to doing so, the difference would be a huge, huge one. Our regular introspections and our little experience at VTF suggests that one of the biggest obstacles to solving our problems of poverty is not any lack of resources - these are aplenty at both public and individual levels. Rather it is the mix-up in our priorities at both levels.
This is why I am writing this morning as we begin the holy season of Ramadan fasting to appeal to Muslims and Christians alike to lend a helping hand to the VTF and to all organisations that strive to help the poor and the underprivileged to become self-dependent.
In writing this piece I will like to refer the reader, especially the Muslim reader, to one of the most profound articles that anyone has written in recent times on how simple it is to solve the problems of our society - if only we sincerely wish to do so.
This is the article written by Adamu Adamu entitled Memo to Umra returnees in the January 17 th edition of Daily Trust and reproduced last week-end in the Weekly Trust by its editor, Garba Deen Muhammad, with a witty but profound small introduction meant to hopefully prick the reader's conscience.
...
For the benefit of those who may not have read the article, Adamu did a simple arithmetic which was highly revelatory of how privileged Muslims, as individuals and as political leaders, have got their priorities mixed up by regularly spending both private and public funds on the annual ritual of Hajj and Umra even when such monies could be better spent attending to far more basic needs of their less privileged compatriots.
...
The object of his article, said Adamu, was to "remind non-first-time pilgrims - and by extension all socially conscious Muslims - that while they flew out in droves to perform the umra, a bigger umra at home was left undone".
The author shows how Muslims spend an average of over 20 billion Naira annually on umra when Muslims are "behind in all indices of development", and when it is said that giving succour to the poor and needy or bringing happiness to the afflicted is better than a hundred Hajj after the obligatory one.
...
If we do so we will surely narrow, if not eliminate, the gap between the poor and the rich, a gap which invariably turns us into each other's enemy rather than each other's friendly neighbour.
...
As far as the editors at these global media are concerned, if Unicef says the vaccine is safe - which a Unicef spokesman says it is - there is no earthly reason why anyone else should have any doubt.
Yet anyone even superficially familiar with the mysterious ways of multi-nationals, including pharmaceutical conglomerates like Pfizer and Monsanto, knows that in their pursuit of profit, it is not beyond them to suborn governments and even international organisations like the United Nations and its organs, including Unicef.
...
In our BBC story about the polio campaign a spokesman of Unicef admitted that tests on the vaccine may SEEM to indicate the contaminations feared by those who have expressed reservations about its safety.
...
In my article, I said the retreat was held in 2001 at the onset of the bank's problems. I have since learnt that it was held in January this year as a desperate measure to halt the bank's decline that had started two years before.
...
In my article, I said the family of Umaru Majigi to which the late Etsu belonged, did not descend from Dendo, the founder of the Fulani dynasty of the Nupe Kingdom.
