    Nigeria killings caught on video

    Nigerian police and military units carried out extra-judicial killings last year in the aftermath of clashes with members of a Muslim group in the north of the country, footage obtained by Al Jazeera appears to confirm.

    An estimated 1,000 people were killed as Nigerian government forces fought Boko Haram in Borno, Yobe, Kano and Bauchi states in July and August of 2009.

    But the footage obtained by Al Jazeera shows that many of the deaths occurred only after the fighting was over.

    Elements of the police and army staged a follow-up operation in which house-to-house searches were conducted and individuals were apparently selected at random and taken to a police station.

    'Shoot him in the chest'

    In the video, a number of unarmed men are seen being made to lie down in the road outside a building before they are shot.

    As one man is brought out to face death, one of the officers can be heard urging his colleague to "shoot him in the chest not the head - I want his hat".

    As the executions continue another man is told: "Sit properly we want to take your picture."

    The shootings continue as a crowd gathers further up the street in front of the police station.

    Voices can be heard saying: "No mercy, no mercy."

    After the executions, the army officer who appears to have been in charge of the operation is seen to be handing over command to a senior police officer. Both men are clearly identified by the name tags on their chests.

    The family of Baba Fugu Mohammed, a respected community leader, told Al Jazeera that he was among those put to death outside the police station.

    "He was killed, he was killed, that's what we believe. He was shot by the police," one relative said.

    Fugu Mohammed was the father-in-law of Mohammed Yusuf, the Boko Haram leader whose group had battled the police, but the two had become estranged.

    His family said that he had come to help police restore order, but was shot.

    The uncensored video is on aljazeera website, to see the true horrific actions of these heartless people. maybe on yawmal qiyaamah it would be said the same to them, "no mercy, no mercy"

    SUbhana Allah. Did you see Muslim name tag on the uniform of the police office in the scene where the body of the local community leader has been discovered?

    Muslims killing Muslims.

    The information is very scarce, but most likely there is some Jihaad going on in the Muslim populated area (separation from Kuffaar being the goal)

    Thats basically what was happening with Boko Haraam. Thats why they went in there killing.

    What did one of the cops say, "Shoot him in the chest, I want his hat".

    Imagine a second if it was the Christians who were killed by the Muslims for sure the thread would have already more than few pages of blamings and denunciations.

    well firstly they had a very simplistic concept of the deen. very backward group which apparantly forbade education believing it to be haram.

    with such a simplistic understanding you can figure out that the understanding of the reality these guys had was also a bit skewered too.

    they attacked local police stations etc first. obviously a retaliation was bound to occur. and when you have hardly any weapons or followers this is what is going to happen to you.

    we need a more sophisticated revival lead by people who understand the world they are living in.
