Update: Nigerian Prison Inmate Breakout Rises to 200

As a follow-up to this morning's posting on an armed gang breaking inmates from a federal prison, it is now estimated that most of the inmates, numbering nearly 200, were freed by their compatriots.

COMMENT: What is not know is whether the attack on the prison was carried out by simple thugs or whether the Muslim extremist group, Boko Haram, was responsible for the breakout as a perverted form of recruitment for its ranks, if, in fact, it was Boko Haram.

People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet's Teachings and Jihad AKA Boko Haram, is a Salafist Jihadist terrorist organization based in the northeast of Nigeria, which vigorously opposes all man-made law and hopes to institute sharia law throughout Nigeria.

Just since last year, Boko Haram has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 300.
