Its vermin like these that cause the world to look at the dark skinned man with a jaundiced eye. The actions of a few have led to very harsh realities for the innocent, peace loving majority who live in the diaspora and work hard and contribute to the growth of the society in which they live. I REALLY hope justice takes its course fully.
Two prayers: 1)The man was already dead before the beheading. 2) They are NOT Nigerians
Two attackers believed shot by police in a brutal confrontation that left a soldier murdered on a London street in broad daylight.

A British soldier was beheaded Wednesday on a London street in a “sickening and barbaric” attack by a pair of machete-wielding jihadists, officials and witnesses said.
The brazen and heinous slaying occurred in broad daylight in front of stunned witnesses, who said the attackers screamed “Allah Akbar.” British Prime David Cameron Cameron said the atrocity appeared to be “terror-related.”
With his hands soaked in blood, one of the attackers was filmed on the street right after the attack and made a chilling claim of responsibility.
“We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” said the attacker, wearing a black watchcap and holding the bloody machete in his left hand. “The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye a tooth for tooth.”
He made it clear that he and his vengeful partner had set out to kill a soldier, staking out the Royal Artillery Barracks in the southeast part of London called Woolwich and randomly targeting their victims.
Witnesses said the soldier was wearing a T-shirt reading “Help our Heroes” — A British military charity.
The violent pair, who were also armed with guns and knives, screamed “Allah Akbar” or “God is great” as they hacked the soldier to death, decapitating him, witnesses told British media. They then waited calmly until police arrived.
As sirens of police cars raced toward them, the talkative suspect halfheartedly apologized to women who witnessed the murder.
“But in our lands our women have to see the same thing,” he said. “You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.”
Within moments, cop jumped out of their cars with guns drawn. Both suspects were shot and wounded by police. They were both taken to the hospital, one in serious condition.
“We saw two knives, meat cleavers, they were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s,” a witness, who would only give his name as James, told LBC radio.
Getting word of the attack in Paris, Cameron cut short his visit with French President Francois Hollande to return to London.
“The killing in Woolwich is truly shocking,” said Cameron. “There are strong indications that it is a terrorist incident.”
He ordered Home Secretary Theresa May to call an emergency meeting of top government security officials in the Cabinet Office Briefing Room in the bowels of 10 Downing St.
May called the incident a “sickening and barbaric attack.”
“They were hacking at this poor guy. We thought they were trying to remove organs from him,” James said. “These two guys were crazed. They were not there. They were just animals. They dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road.”
He said one of the chatty killers even asked a bus driver who stopped to take his picture.
“I think they were proud of what they were doing,” James said.
He said several women rushed to help the bleeding soldier.
“They were shielding and covering him,” James said. “The attackers with the knives were standing over these women.”
The soldier’s name or age were not immediately released. Nick Raynsford, a local member of Parliament, confirmed the victim was a soldier.
Other sources said the victim was returning to his barracks from central London when he was killed.
A teacher at a local school told BBC News that he walked out of the school gates and saw a body splayed in the road a short distance away, he then heard gunshots.
“All the traffic had stopped. There were gunshots after that so I am not sure about the situation after,” he said. “But all I needed to know was that there was an emergency and we needed to go into our emergency procedures to make sure that the children were as safe as possible.”
