A seven-year-old girl on Sunday, killed herself and five others in a suicide bombing in Potiskum, Yobe State.

The attack, occurred in a market, Vanguard reports.

Security guards reportedly saw the girl and became suspicious, sending her away from the market each time she approached.

“We sent her back four times, because given her age, she did not have anything to do in the market. When we were screening people, she bent and tried to pass under the ropes, some distance from our view. That was when the explosives went off,” said vigilante leader, Buba Lawan.

Lawan further stated that women had been banned from the market as a preventative measure to halt further attacks.

    Oh my God, oh my God. Did you say 7yr old???? I’m sure the little child didn’t even know what she was going to do. As a mother, a sister, an aunt, this broke my heart. Why?, why? why?, Boko haram How do you people sleep at night? Why so much hatred and wickedness in your hearts? What exactly are you fighting for? This is sad sad sad.

    Until each human knows within their heart each daughter is my daughter, each son is my son, each mother is my mother, each father is my father we will let our Cultural Foundation Codex ‘Other Last – If At All’ be their last memory of us.

    I am beyond grief as what we can ignore as being sourced from the very codex we determine as sacred and by our adherence to the ‘Is Islam’ we allow from generation to generation the ‘Not Islam’ to be the monster it is.

    Change the Architect and Builder or Change Nothing.

    you can’t call a 7 year old a ‘suicide’ bomber. suicide implies the choice to end ones life. This child doesn’t have the facilities to make that determination. These animals are child killers – that’s all. And this kid was as much a victim of their evil as the others. They strapped bombs on a baby and sent her to her death.

    Evil!!! Those who use children and vulnerable people to achieve their violent aims will pay for it very dearly, both here and in the Hereafter.

    May God grant all the victims, even the little girl eternal rest. As for those who sponsor such atrocities, I pity you! You cannot mock God and get away with it. You will roast on earth and in Hellfire.

    That is the legacy of the likes of Buhari and other Northern Leader who failed to educate their brothers and sisters

    They couldn’t govern North well but want to govern Nigeria.

    It beats my imagination that all Buhari has done in his life time is to vie for presidency when he built no school,hospital,creche and mentored non.

    It took Jonathan a southerner to build alamagiri schools for them.

    Shamefully, Buhari will loose for the final time before going into retirement.

    If he like let him creep out again in 2019 to contest.

    Every region have tried to at least to educate their people, Buhari took his to Surrey and abandoned the alamagiris and women to idle away while procreating by the minute without medical facilities to outnumber the rest region without corresponding education.

    I remembered in 1991 or 1992 during census, it was very difficult to count the Northerners. You find an aboki with four wives and uncountable number of children tucked away in his little abode.

    None of the children in school and non willing to take simple IMMUNIZATION. Didn’t they kill the nurses that where vaccinating children the other time?

    Tell me what Buhari can offer a digitized world in this 21 century. It is Education? Political tolerance,Religious tolerance?

    Tell me why the Yoruba, Edo etc Muslims don’t kill? -It is education and its influences.

    Buhari is moraly NOT fit to govern this country.

    Obasanjo after presidency went back to school- Buhari the presidential contender for over 2 decade added no qualification to himself but want to rule well educated Nigerian People.

    This is poor and a great poverty of the mind.

    What ever Tinubu, Atiku and Amechi are packaging is an explosive called Buhari.
