 Nigeria: Muslims hijack bus, kill the driver, kidnap all the passengers

The first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them

My contact in Nigeria informs me that the perpetrators in this case were once again Fulani jihadis.

“As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, ‘When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [the Truth=Islam] then strike [their] necks’ (Qur’an sura 47, verse 4)” — Al-Mawardi, al-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah (The Laws of Islamic Governance).

“Gunmen Kill Bus Driver, Kidnap All Passengers Coming To South-East From Lagos, Abandon Little Girl,” Sahara Reporters, February 10, 2024:

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have reportedly hijacked GUO motors coming to the South-East from Lagos State, South West Nigeria and abducted all passengers.

The kidnappers reportedly killed the driver of the bus and left a little girl behind after kidnapping her parents alongside other passengers.

Although SaharaReporters could not ascertain the exact location of the incident that was said to have happened on Friday, voices in a video of the incident shared by Senator Ned Nwoko on his X (formerly Twitter) said that the vehicle was coming from Lagos.

In the video seen by SaharaReporters on Saturday, a voice said “This bus is coming from Lagos. We stopped together at Akure and ate.”

Meanwhile, the Senator has decried the attack, noting that this was one of the reasons for the law on self-defence which he is sponsoring at the National Assembly.

Senator Nwoko, who expressed dismay over the handling of the kidnapping menace by the security agencies, said that perhaps if the driver had a gun or any of the passengers, the kidnappers wouldn’t certainly have their way.

The attack has attracted angry reactions from Nigerians who also shared the same belief that if this is law on self-defence and residents can carry arms, the kidnapping monster would certainly be teamed [sic]….
