Islamic school attack wounds 6 students, teacher
LAGOS | Attackers threw homemade explosives inside an Islamic school in a predominantly Christian city where some 50 children had gathered for an Arabic class, wounding six pupils and a teacher, authorities said Wednesday.
The rare attack in Nigeria’s oil-rich southern delta comes just days after radical Islamic militants set off a series of explosions across the country on Christmas, leaving at least 39 dead and dozens wounded.
Analysts say it is too early to speak of retaliation following the attacks by Boko Haram, but worry about what such violence could mean.
“Sapele just seems like the most unlikely place for a retaliatory attack to take place,” criminologist Innocent Chukwuma said.
“But if it is, this would play right into Boko Haram, which has been looking to escalate the conflict to make the country ungovernable.”

The ANC Youth League has stressed that it is not involved in the initiative. Mr. Malema told the paper he has no reason to interfere with the designer’s commercial endeavor.View Entire Story
