Nigeria's military has promised increased security but appears incapable of halting a stream of attacks by extremists holding more than 250 schoolgirls hostage.
The kidnapping of the girls two months ago and failure of Nigeria's military and government to rescue them has roused international concern. The United States is searching for the girls with drones and has sent experts along with Britain and France to help in counter-terrorism tactics and hostage negotiation.

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) - Suspected Islamic extremists targeted two Christian villages in mainly Muslim northeast Nigeria and killed at least 12 civilians including guests at a wedding reception, witnesses said Monday.
...
The soldiers fighting to put down the 4-year-old Islamic uprising reported that they killed at least 57 insurgents in weekend air raids and ground assaults in Borno state, near Nigeria's border with Chad.
...
"Air and land bombardments are continuing in different locations where terrorists have been reportedly sighted," a Defense Ministry statement said Monday.
Meanwhile, electoral officials in neighboring Yobe state said the opposition All Progressives Congress swept every seat in local government elections that concluded peacefully, defying the Islamic extremists who are opposed to democracy and the ruling party's insistence that it was too insecure to campaign.
Survivors of weekend attacks in Borno state said eight civilians were killed when extremists fired on a wedding party Saturday night in Tashan-Alede village, and another four were killed Sunday in neighboring Kwajffa village. A security official confirmed the attacks but did not have casualty figures. He requested anonymity because he is not allowed to give information to reporters.
...
Other Islamic extremist groups have come to realize that the indiscriminate killing of Muslims is a strategic liability. That realization is believed responsible for al-Shabab fighters from Somalia sparing Muslims in the spectacular attack on a Kenyan mall in September. Experts surmise that the killings of innocent Muslims have also led to a fracture within Nigeria's Boko Haram, with a splinter group called Ansaru concentrating on kidnapping foreigners.
...
In Yobe, a member of President Goodluck Jonathan's People's Democratic Party said insurgents attacked the state's second city of Potiskum on Friday, killing seven civilians on the day before the vote.

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.
