Parents Donate Daughters to Boko Haram in Northern Nigeria

ICC Note:

There has been a very disturbing new trend in Northern Nigeria. According to the Nigerian Army, Parents are “donating” their daughters to Boko Haram for their suicide bombing missions. Not only is this despicable as a parent, but as a human being as well. The absolute disregard for their daughter’s lives is one of the most horrific things happening in the world today. We pray that these parents would come to their senses and realize how despicable and evil their actions are before selling their daughters off to a terrorist organization.

 

08/07/2017 Nigeria (AllAfrica) – Some parents donate their daughters to the Boko Haram for suicide attacks, the Nigerian Army said on Saturday.

The Army in a statement by its spokesperson, Sani Usman, therefore warned such parents to desist forthwith.

Mr. Usman, a brigadier general, also appealed to religious, traditional and community leaders, and other Nigerians in the North-east, to dissuade people from donating their daughters to Boko Haram for indoctrination and suicide bombing missions.

Mr. Usman said the appeal became necessary following revelations by some intercepted female suicide bombers during interrogations.

"It was discovered that most of these hapless minors were "donated" to the terrorist sect by their heartless and misguided parents and guardians, as part of their contribution to the perpetuation of the Boko Haram terrorists' dastardly acts against the Nigerian society and humanity.
