Young girls have been sold to Boko Haram as suicide bombers by their parents.
That was the case with 13 year old Zahra'u Babangida who was arrested during an attack against a market in Kano on December 10, 2014. Two girls went into the market in Kano. One girl blew herself up, but not Babangida.
Babangida says she was injured when the other girl blew herself up and that she ended up in the hospital. There staff discovered that she was wearing a bomb vest.
A few weeks after she was arrested, Babangida told how she became a suicide bomber. She told that her parents took her to Boko Haram who was hiding in the woods near the town of Gidan Zana, north of Kano.
There one of Boko Haram leaders asked if she knew what a suicide bomber was.
- They said "can you do it?" And I said "no." They said, "You will go to heaven if you do it." I said "no, I can not." They said they would shoot me or throw me into a dungeon if I didn't do it, the girl told at a press conference that took place in Zana, according to the BBC.
This month a 7 year old girl blew herself up at a market in Nigeria.
