Boko Haram is suspected of using the kidnapped girls as “suicide bombers.”
According to details, terror group Boko Haram is now on rampage as they come up with new tactic. Allegedly, the school girls kidnapped by the terrorist group in 2014 are now being used as suicide bombers by the group. Recently, Boko Haram carried out twin bomb blasts using two young girls as suicide bombers in Yorbe state and detonated another bomb on a 10-year-old girl in a busy market in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.
These “suicide bombing” attacks appear to be the implementation of new tactics by the terror group. The death toll of the January 3 attack in Baga is almost 2,000, but the government of Nigeria claims 150 people died. Boko Haram is pursuing an Islamic Caliphate which is essentially at odds with a secular and democratic Nigeria. Last year, about 200 school girls were kidnapped by the terror group who have not been rescued so far despite a lot of outcry.
