    In the past few months, I have heard all sorts of stories about the unfortunate massacre of Muslim faithfuls in Jos, Plateau state in central Nigeria on their way to the Eid prayer in September 2011 and how their flesh was roasted and eaten by Berom youths. I thought “roasted and eaten” was a metaphor of sorts so I never paid much attention to it. Even when I heard there was a video on Youtube that captured the “roasting and eating”, I never bothered to make a simple Google search to verify the incident because I just refused to believe it had happened. Then I saw the said video posted on Facebook today, I watched every frame of this unbelievably atrocious video clip with absolute horror and revulsion. I am not only incensed and disgusted by the new low some Nigerians have sunken to and how far they would go in their hatred and fighting in the name of religion, but I am very worried and disturbed by the deafening silence of our leaders, especially our Christian leaders and sections of our media over this inhuman, savage, despicable and barbaric act.

    Note: There are several graphic images/video which are quite gruesome..

    I don't think this has been covered on the news at all? When there were attacks on Christians by Muslims all the major media outlets were reporting the stories.. Why is there a silence now?

    What an abhorrent and vile practice. I really worry for the future of this Earth. Injustice has truly spread like wildfire. These people need to go. As for the silence, well it is hardly surprising. The media really love to tarnish muslims with the "terrorist" "extremist" blah... brush, but I don't think this has to do with being muslim/non-muslim. I think it has to do with the location of the place. Media outlets don't give a toss about some parts of Africa in all honesty.

    ........ honestly disgusting ...... but it's true. The media care more about certain football managers resigning more than they do about cases like this that should be reported on.

    Anyways, stuff like this only helps Boko Harams cause. The government should crack down on such acts if they don't want Boko getting support.
