Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram launched an major assault on the eastern Nigerian city of Ganye killing at least 25 people.
Terrorists attacked a prison, police station, bank and bar. The dead included the prison warden, a policeman and a major local politician.
The terrorists were armed with bombs, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. They were able to successfully free an unknown number of terrorists from the prison during the assault.
The bank had been looted although local officials would not tell the press how much money was taken by the terror organization.
The assaults come just weeks after the leadership of Boko Haram had requested that the government give them blanket amnesty for any terror acts committed during the uprising.
