Boko Haram Use of Child Suicide Bombers Up 200%

The United Nations children’s organization UNICEF announced this week that the Islamic State affiliate Boko Haram has used 27 children as suicide bombers in the past three months, nearly the same amount as in the entirety of 2016.

The number represents a 200 percent increase from the same time period in 2016, when the organization recorded nine instances of child suicide bombing.

Boko Haram has increasingly turned to using children as suicide bombers as police forces in Nigeria’s northeast have implemented security measures to keep the terrorist group from successfully executing bombings at crowded markets, girls’ schools, and Shiite mosques.

“This is the worst possible use of children in conflict,” UNICEF officials said in their report on the topic, “Silent Shame: Bringing Out the Voices of Children Caught in the Lake Chad Crises.” The report revealed that observers have documented 117 such child suicide attacks in the past three years “across Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon.”

Marie-Pierre Poirier, UNICEF’s regional director for West and Central Africa, emphasized the importance of local law enforcement treating the children as “victims, not perpetrators.” “Forcing or deceiving them into committing such horrific acts is reprehensible,” she said.

This is especially important with children who detonate their weapons and survive. Many families shun such children – who have likely been in Boko Haram captivity for some time before being forced into the suicide bombing – fearing that they remain a threat due to brainwashing.

“Society’s rejection of these children, and their sense of isolation and desperation, could be making them more vulnerable to promises of martyrdom through acceptance of dangerous and deadly missions,” the UNICEF report read.

    They use children in more than just suicide bombing. Don’t expect the United Nations to be able to do anything about it. They have made a complete botch of anything they stick their noses into.

    I’m pretty tired of this Islam BS! I never had to deal with this stuff when I was a young man. Now, it is all over and they scare the hell out of me! They won’t assimilate to our country and appear to hate us. Why do they want to come here. Welfare and they want to take over over our country, not assimilate! This needs to be stopped ASAP!

    Those peaceful jerkoffs at it again. Scum of the earth and worthy of every MOAB we can drop on them!

    Nobody wants to call it what it really is, it is a religious war but the media will never call it that it is always called “the war on terror” when in reality it is a war on religion, our religion or any religion that is not Islam.
    All this fuss over sanctuary cities for the refugees could be settled if they only allow people under 16 and over 50, any person that is of fighting age should stay in their respective country and fight for their country.
    We all see it on the news, read about it and watch it shows like snapped, body of evidence, fear thy neighbor and other forensic criminal shows, in the last few years I have seen more and more shows where fathers and brothers have killed female family members because they are becoming “Americanized” and not following the strict code of morals females are supposed to follow. One show a father ran over and killed his 16 year old daughter because she was talking to a boy from school on her phone, after a year of beatings she finally moved in with a neighbor family that moved here from Iraq with her family, the neighbor family stopped being so strict when they moved here but her family did not so the father ran over the neighbor woman and his own daughter with his SUV killing his own daughter for shaming the family honor.
    Another show the father and his two sons drowned to daughters, the wife and the nanny which was actually his first wife that had to stay and be a slave maid and nanny to him and his new wife. There are countless other examples of these shows where the males think they have a right to beat, torture and kill the females even though they are family. Those extremist will never change, to them God’s law Trumps man’s law, they will come here and try to change our laws, it may take a few decades but they will eventually succeed, most of us will be long gone but our grandchildren and their children will have to live with this madness.
    If they cannot follow our laws they need to stay and fight for their country, simple as that, after WW2 Germans and Japanese could come here but not if they still believed in Nazism and the militaristic emperor of Japan,
