KANO, Nigeria — Ten Christians had their throats slit and militants killed two police officers during attacks on churches and border posts in a fresh wave of violence in northern Nigeria, officials reported Sunday.

The Islamist group Boko Haram was thought to be behind the slaughter of the Christians late on Saturday in the northern town of Chibok, local officials said.

"The attackers came in around 9:00 pm chanting 'Allahu Akbar', which made us suspect they are Boko Haram," said a local government official on condition of anonymity. Add a comment

FG To Sanusi 'We Will Not Sack Workers'

alt

The Minister of Labour, Chief Chukwuemeka Wogu, yesterday told Nigerian workers not to be worried over the call on the government by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, to cut the nation’s workforce by half to help sustain economy. Sanusi had argued that the country was spending too much money on a negligible percentage of the population to the detriment of the overwhelming majority.

Wogu, who made the call at the 8th National Labour Relations Summit and Fellowship Award, with the theme, ‘Social Policy, Labour Relations and the Transformation Agenda: Extending Social Protection In Nigeria’, assured the workers that the federal government would rather create more jobs for Nigerians than sack workers.

The House of Representatives also raised objections to Sanusi’s suggestion for a reduction in the number of lawmakers in National Assembly to save cost. Add a comment
