UNICEF announced a multiple of four rise over the whole of 2016 in the involvement of children, mostly the girls, being used as the said “human bombs” by Boko Haram insurgents in northeastern part of Nigeria.

UNICEF spokesperson, Marixie Mercado, stated that 83 children were compelled to engage in suicide missions. She said 55 out of the kids were girls below age 15, 27 of them were boys, and one was an baby tied to a girl.


She said the end result for all kids are very bad. As a result of their job as human bombs, she reported that kids are generally perceived with guilty feeling.

“There is an exceptional extent of fear clearly in these locale and… people are scared of kids who have been cheated in this totally horrible way,” she stated. “There are times where children are being rejected by their communities and even more terrible at times.”
