Yesterday morning, there were two explosions at the Monday Market in Maiduguri, Borno State and they were carried out by two seven-year-olds who had had bombs strapped around them. These suicide attacks killed three, including both bombers while it left about 17 people seriously injured and presently hospitalised.
According to a member of the Maiduguri militia who witnessed the attack, he said he watched the girls get out of a keke and they showed no signs of any emotions. He tried to speak with one of them in Hausa and English but she totally ignored him. So he assumed they were looking for their mother. Shortly after, their bombs were detonated, killing them instantly and killing another person while injuring several. Even though Boko Haram terrorists have not yet claimed this bombing as part of their 'achievement', it is assumed they are behind the dastard and inhumane act.
What is the world turning into? How can anyone conceive the idea of using 7-year-olds as suicide bombers? What do they aim to achieve by such cruel and nefarious acts? When does it all end?
