Not many were impressed by the fact that this teenage girl was part of the evil instrument of a deadly terrorist sect. But the decision this little girl made, saved the lives of hundreds of innocent people at the dying minute.
On Tuesday, February 9, terrorist group Boko Haram, packed the body of this teenage girl…and two others…with explosives and instructed her to detonate it at an Internally Displaced Persons camp (IDPs) in Dikwa, Borno State in North Eastern Nigeria.
At the dying minute, the little girl ripped off her vest to avoid taking part in the attack. The two others with her, however, walked into the middle of hundreds of people lining up for their daily ration of food before and blew themselves up in the attack that killed 58 and injured 78. It was the most lethal attack launched by the sect in recent months.
The girl said to be about 14 years old, was later questioned by Modu Awami, a Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) fighter. She confessed she was scared because she knew she would kill people. She also gave officials information about other planned bombings.
I think she was very brave.
