Could Chibok Girls Be The Teenage Female Suicide Bombers Now Working For Boko Haram?

Posted in: , , ,

Another female suicide bomber has been reported at the Aminu Kano College of Islamic Studies this afternoon blowing herself up as students were checking results in the school. Yesterday, two female suicide bombers struck elsewhere in Kano.

The day before that, there was also a similar report, and in some of the cases, these female suicide bombers have been reported as teenagers, sometimes as young as 16!

Maybe it is time, we start putting two and two together?

The coincidence seems not to be lost on Oby Ezekwesili of the #bringbackourgirls campaign as she wrote on twitter;

“It feels like eternity since April 14 when our girls lost their freedom. How can we move on like that? This new trend and serial pattern of female suicide bombers surely should particularly worry us.

“Female suicide bombers are again and again becoming the trend and our Chibok girls are still in the enemy’s den. It worries me stiff. Are we thinking?

Our Chibok girlsreally need to be rescued from the clutches of evil.

Another twitter user Bukky Shonibare also wrote..

“Seems abducted women that were undergoing indoctrination and brainwashing while in hostage for years are now being sent out as suicide bombers.

However, 100 days is long enough for anyone’s ideologies or principles to be distorted, especially teenagers whose values are still being shaped.

“To know the possible impact of 100+ days on one’s ideologies, psychologists say it takes only 30 days! It is now increasingly dangerous to leave those girls there. Whatever is it they are doing may be counterproductive.

“They (Chibok girls) can be indoctrinated, brainwashed, or put under duress to do this. In the face of death, no sensible human will be a ‘willing participant.’ There’ll definitely be an element of coercion.”
