Boko Haram Islamists destroyed five Nigerian churches on July 30. The terrorists used IEDs and petrol bombs to torch the buildings to the ground.
Christian Today reported:

Islamic extremist group Boko Haram has attacked at least five churches Borno State, northern Nigeria, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) reports.

Gunmen reportedly used IEDs and petrol bombs to destroy churches in the Hawal Local Government Area, which is home to a predominantly Christian community, on the evening of July 30.

No one is thought to have died in the attacks, but two people were murdered in the Shaffa District of Hawul on July 26 by Boko Haram militants. Eyewitnesses say the victims were each beheaded, and their severed heads placed on their chests.

Boko Haram is an Islamist terror group, intent on “cleansing” Nigeria of Christians. Members have also attacked moderate Muslim communities.

At least 13 died and several more were injured in two mosque suicide bombings in Yobe state on July 29.
