According to reports, the heavily armed extremists separated the Muslims from the Christians by asking them to recite verses from the Qu'ran. Then they ordered the Muslims to get off the bus and then shot the Christians point blank in the head before escaping back to Somalia.
A Spokesman for Shebab later said the 28 travelers were killed in retaliation for a raid on mosques in Mombasa, Kenya last week.
These were the words of the Minority Leader of Nigeria's House of Representatives and the Caucus leader of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.
In a statement by his research and media assistant, Wasiu Olanrewaju-Smart, Gbajabiamila said: "What happened in the National Assembly will forever live in infamy, expressing sadness over events that led him and other members into scaling the National Assembly gate to gain entrance into their duty post.
The lawmaker expressed surprise that the Presidency through its agents could undermine a court injunction restraining them from acting against the Speaker, "it was pretty clear the presidency in spite of a court injunction wanted to do something sinister and illegal.
"They perfected the plot to stop the Speaker and the opposition leader from gaining entry. My members were already in chambers waiting for me to come in so as to provide leadership and direction. Most of them had gone over the fate too. I had to do the needful to save our democracy. We thank God we foiled their evil machinations. We will continue to be vigilant."
The police and other security agencies on Thursday, blocked Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, and many other APC lawmakers from entering the National Assembly complex while their counterparts in the PDP had easy access to the legislative building.
The House was reconvened by the Speaker to deliberate on a letter from President Goodluck Jonathan requesting for approval of the House to extend state of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.

"When we got to his house, I told him that I was not interested in having sex with him, he called two of his security guards to help him to tie me up and seal my mouth. He then brought out his belt and started flogging me," says Arionla, a 300 level student who alleged that she was raped by a man, later identified as the cousin of former Director–General of the Nigerian Stock Exchange(NSE), President, Ndi Okereke-Onyuike.
The suspect, Prince Daniel Okereke, 37, was alleged to have lured her into his home at Mende, Maryland, Lagos, subdued her with the aid of his security guard before he pounced on her and raped her severally.
Saturday Sun learnt that after the several rape sessions which lasted for more than 30 minutes, Prince Daniel ordered Arionla to pick her bags and get out of the house. Abused and bitter, Arionla was said to have started destroying the property in his house and also flinging same out of the compound. In the process, the car that belonged to one of the neighbours was destroyed.
Not aware of what could have led to the fracas, the angry neighbour alerted the police attached to Area F, Ikeja who arrested Arionla and accused her of assault. On listening to both sides and overwhelming bruises on Arionla's body, a case of attempted rape was established and Prince Daniel was arrested and later released on bail while Arinola was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja for examination and treatment.
Saturday Sun further gathered that when Arinola and her family discovered that the case was as good as closed by the police attached to Area F Command, Ikeja, she reported the matter to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti that ordered his re-arrest, having sighted the original copy of the lab test which proved that she was forcefully defiled and the cause of the wound on her body.
Still recovering from the scars that had disfigured her beautiful body, Arinola, 6ft tall, and who can be best described as a model, claimed that she saw Prince Daniel as a harmless elder brother who cared about her ailing health.
According to Arinola, 22, and a student of University of Lagos, Akoka, she met Prince Daniel through an online dating site, early last month. "We became friends online and I gave him my number. He kept calling requesting to see me in school and I kept giving him one excuse or the other. He actually said that he wanted me to be his friend and I declined that I am a student and should be allowed to face my studies.
"On November 6, 2014, he called me that he was in my school compound. I was sick and told him that I was about to head to the pharmacy to get drugs. He volunteered to drive me to the pharmacy. I was impressed and grateful for such a kind gesture. After buying the drugs, we drove to the fast food and bought food. He asked me to join him to a seat out joint where I can relax and eat the food.
I was surprised when he drove straight to his house at Mende, Maryland."
He said that I will be the one to the bear the shame since the world will ask what I was doing in his house when I was supposed to be in school," Arinola narrated.
"When it dawned on her that the prince is a beast in sheep's clothing, Arionla stopped struggling and parted her legs for the Prince. "He raped me severally till he was satisfied. He later removed the ropes and ordered me to get out of his house. I was in pains and knew that since the law will finally release him because of his status, I needed to destroy anything within reach. It was the neighbours whose car was destroyed that alerted the police at Area F, Ikeja.
"I wrote my statement and went to the hospital for examination. I was not surprised when I was told that he was granted bail the same day. My family had to report the matter to Panti and he was re-arrested."
Still dressed in his royal white dress as at press time, Prince Daniel, a businessman, who is also related to Nigerian actress, Stephanie Okereke, blamed the devil for the act. "I am so ashamed of myself. We are family of professionals whom you know very well. I don't know what got into my head. I am sorry and plead for forgiveness," Daniel, who said he was single and still searching, pleaded.
When asked why she destroyed the property in his house, Prince Daniel said:
"She thought I was going to force her to have sex with me. She started destroying everything which is so expensive," he said specifically referring to his Chandelier lighting hanging in his living room.
When further asked if he eventually slept with her, Prince Daniel said: "Yes, I did. I am very sorry, I need a way out."
Confirming the story as at press time , Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu said that the suspect would be charged to court for rape and assault.
According to him, the report got from Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, showed that there was actual penetration in the course of the squabble. "He will be arraigned along side with one of the security men who assisted the suspected to subdue Tope. Meanwhile, the police is still on the trail of one of the security guards who also participated in assisting the man to tie her up."

The 41-year-old headmaster, Drago Kamenik, was allegedly found by students between the legs of 45-year-old teacher, Manja Mertelj after they heard moans of pleasure coming from a classroom that was supposedly empty.
The embarrassed head teacher first threatened to sue the students who uploaded the video on Youtube then later denied it was him after the video went viral in their country.
One of the students said;
'We heard the noises and knew someone was having sex in there, but we thought it would be other students. We couldn't believe it when we saw our maths teacher and headmaster.'
The headmaster, who is a married father-of-two, sclaims the video is fake, and says he has reported the clip to police, according to Slovenske Novice.
"The man in the video is not me, it has been photoshopped. I also spoke to my wife. Can these fools even begin to imagine what damage they have caused by doing this?! As for the maths teacher, she is a very good teacher and has had many positive things said about her.' he said.
Another student called his bluff and said that:
'We can put up more to prove it but I don't think anyone really doubts us.'
