A vehicle used by Boko Haram set ablaze by Nigerian troops near the town of Baga, north-eastern Nigeria

A teenage girl has been beaten to death and set on fire in a Nigerian market after being accused of being a suicide bomber.

Police officers said a second suspected teenage girl was also accused of being a suicide bomber and was arrested at the Muda Lawal market, the biggest market in Bauchi city in north east Nigeria.

A yam vendor said people discovered one of the girls had two bottles strapped to her body so they clubbed her to death, put a tyre doused in fuel over her head and set it on fire…

      “Necklacing”. This is their entertainment.

        “With our boxes of matches and our necklaces we shall liberate this country” – Necklace Nelson’s better half, in 1986. The ANC invented this charming practice 30 years ago:

      yes winnie and her necklaces

      Her people left out the step where they killed the victim before placing the ‘necklace’. Live immolation was preferred.

    Well, I hope that mob was 100% correct and she wasn’t instead hiding a couple of cans of Red Bull.
    I have little faith in the sober judgement of Nigerian lynchmobs.
    If they believed she was a witch, they would have done the same thing.
    Either way, poor girl.
    If she was a suicide bomber, she might have been an unwilling participant.
    Thus is Africa.

      And in Africa the first thing you do when you suspect someone of carrying live explosives on their body is to beat up the bomb.
      Not like it would detonate or anything.

        It’s just there version of “cutting the red wire”.
        Yeah, now that you mention it, it’s not how Westren bomb disposal technicians would have likely have handled it.

    O/T – Closer to home we have so much “diversity” in AB now – this time from Algiers. Note in the story, not one mention of the vibrant connection of the “M” or “I” words.

      Heh. I’m not feeling enrichment there in your post, lady.

    Another thing.. Muslims in this country (Canada) listen up: You’re either with us or not. If you’re not with us, you have the opportunity to leave OR be at war with us–meaning you will be shot!
    That’s what will happen if I become Prime Minister of Canada.

    They killed a suicide bomber before she committed suicide or after.
