Parents now Offer Daughters to Boko Haram for Suicide Missions – Army

The Nigerian Army has described as unfortunate situation parents now donate their female children to Boko Haram terrorists for suicide missions.
According to the Nigerian Army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman in a statement on Saturday it has now become a norm in the North East of the country for parents to offer their daughters as contribution to the terrorist group as suicide bombers.
He said this fact was uncovered following revelations by some intercepted female bombers during interrogations.
According to him: “It was discovered that most of these hapless minors were “donated” to the terrorists 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.
“The acts of these parents and guardians are not only barbaric, but condemnable and unacceptable.
“Nigerians have a responsibility and obligation to collectively mould our children and wards and define a better future for them rather than condemning them to death by the criminal Boko Haram terrorists and their sympathisers through bombings,” Usman said.
He appealed to religious, traditional and community leaders, and well-meaning Nigerians in the North-East, to dissuade their people from donating their daughters to Boko Haram for indoctrination and bombing missions.
He urged the people to be more vigilant, security conscious and report any suspicious persons or those whose daughters or female wards are missing or have not been seen recently.
He stated further: “The public is also reminded that the Nigerian Army’s offer and reward of the sum of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00) to anybody that provide information about bombing, is still valid,” he added.
