I was Recruited as a Suicide Bomber after I refused Marriage Proposals from 3 Boko Haram Terrorists – 14-year old Girl



A 14-year old suspected female suicide bomber says Boko Haram leaders chose her to detonate an Improvised Explosive Device in Maiduguri because she refused to get married to their members in Sambisa Forest.

The suspect was among three suspects arrested by the military when they allegedly came for a suicide mission at a military facility in Jakana in Maiduguri.

The suspect told NAN in Maiduguri on Sunday that she was sent on the mission to detonate the device because she refused marriage proposals from three Boko Haram terrorists.

The suspect said she was abducted with her father,  Usman, by Boko Haram insurgents in Gwoza, Borno, in 2013.

She said she and her father were running to Mandara mounting for safety when they were abducted.

The suspect said she and her father wanted to travel to Madagali in Adamawa where he normally sold cows before Boko Haram insurgents attacked Gwoza.

“I have spent three years in the hands of Boko Haram. Three different Boko Haram (terrorists) had proposed to marry me and I refused. Two among them were commanders (amir).

When I refused for the third time, one of the commanders became furious and threatened to kill me and my father. I told him I would  rather die than marry a Boko Haram (terrorist).

So, after one week, they said since I have refused to get married, I should be taken to Maiduguri for a suicide mission. So, three of them   held my hands and they injected me.

Then, I never knew what was happening again. I was taken to a herbalist, who, after I regained  consciousness, told me that I had  been with him for 30 days.

He told me he was preparing me for a mission. So he gave me some water to drink. I don’t know what it tasted like but I drank it. So, he said they would come and pick me (that day).

At about 7PM, three Boko Haram (members) came with a male and a female. They were also recruited for the mission like me.

We spent one and a half days on the road to Maiduguri. It was when we got to Maiduguri that they strapped the bombs on our bodies. At that moment I knew that I was going to die, so I started crying.

I was watching when the first bomber, a female, detonated her explosive close to a military checkpoint which killed no one but herself. The second, a male, was killed by the military before he could detonate his.

At that time something told me to remove my own IED and surrender which I did. I was surrounded by soldiers and policemen and I fainted.

When I woke, I discovered that one of the policemen at the checkpoint was a brother of my mother’s. I think that was the reason I survived,’’ the girl said.

Meanwhile, Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander of  Operation Lafiya Dole, said the suspects were being de-radicalised at the military detention facility.

“We have quite a number of them here in our facility. We have been profiling them and making them feel comfortable. So far, from their testimonies, they usually tell us that they were brainwashed by some sort of charms to commit suicide,” Irabor said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    I love and respect all religions in the including Ibrahimaic ones but I hate when they turn their members to look like drug users.

    Am afraid there certain people groups that have elected; ‘annihilation’! Oh well saharans u made the most of that sand. But the Anglo-Americas are responsible for whipping two totally distinct troublesome groups off the face of this Earth! And ur rabbidnes has secured you a third spot on DAT list! It was fun! i hope in hell there will a peoples who share an equal obsession with snake like eyes, pale skin and grotesque sexual hygiene. Good Luck, Good Bye!

    We thank GOD for this kind of exposure of this boko haram going as far as getting spiritualist to use these females for suicide bombings..
    We thank GOD for buhari who could face this boko haram.Any patriots must pray for president buhari.perhaps any spiritualist wishing president buhari perhaps because their means of livelihood is being eroded shall have their mischief return upon their own heads. Same for any body in possession of stolen money wishing president buhari evil. Since president buhari has left. Efcc seem to have reduced tempo of discovering money.
    Let patriots get it right we need president buhari. Previous administration detailed in all things by throwing security, integrity, merit to background. People do not want to hear this.
