10-Year-Old Girl Used as Human Bomb in Nigeria Attack

A 10-year-old girl used as suicide bomber detonated an explosive and killed herself in a New Year’s Eve attack in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Although no group or individual has said they are responsible for the attack, using women and little girls is consistent with the tactics of the ISIS-affiliated group Boko Haram.

Boko Haram Survivor: Chibok Girls Are Now Trained Jihadis

A woman freed from ISIS-affiliated terror group Boko Haram told authorities the militants forced schoolgirls kidnapped from the town of Chibok, Borno, in April 2014 to fight for the radical Islamic group.

On Anniversary of Boko Haram Kidnapping, 85% of Chibok Girls Still Missing

On April 14, 2014, the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram abducted more than 300 schoolgirls from the village of Chibok, cementing their international reputation as one of the most ruthless and dangerous terror groups in the world.

A New Arc of Evil: The Boko Haram/ISIS Merger

In January, the world’s single largest terror attack since 9/11 was carried out by Boko Haram, an Islamist terrorist group in northern Nigeria. That incident, which drew only passing notice from the West, saw the slaughter of 2,000 civilians in the border town of Baga. Boko Haram’s oath of allegiance to the Islamic State last weekend raises questions about how this will affect the group. Given Boko Haram’s demonstrable ruthlessness in Baga, a better question would be, why aren’t we aiming to “degrade and destroy” it, too?

The Nigerian town of Chibok, which became world-famous nearly a year ago as Boko Haram terrorists kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls during a physics exam, has condemned a federal government attempt to rebuild the doomed school as little consolation in light of the government’s failure to locate and rescue the abducted girls.

Face to Face with a Boko Haram Escapee: A Christian Boy Tells His Story

In my years of working with victims of Boko Haram terrorism in northern Nigeria, I have never seen anyone like him. After the mass abduction of 276 Chibok schoolgirls, I have worked closely with about 20 who escaped, half of whom I have placed in US schools. Although it is now nine months since the April attack, not one of them escaped after that first week.
