Women council seeks end to child bombers
The National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) has warned parents to stop donating their children to terrorists for use as suicide bombers.
President of the council, Chief Gloria Laraba Shoda, made the call following revelation by the Nigerian Army that some parents were supporting the course of Boko Haram insurgency by donating their daughters as suicide bombers.
Shoda in a statement in Abuja yesterday described the “Unthinkable despicable.’’
She advised parents and guardians to stop the practice, adding that it was inhuman to donate children to be sacrificed for whatever reason or motive.
Shoda appealed to traditional and community leaders, as well as other wellmeaning Nigerians especially in the Northeast, to help dissuade people from donating their wards for indoctrination and suicide missions. act as and
