“Boko Haram has used 83 children as suicide bombers in 2017 – UNICEF,” RT, August 22, 2017:
Boko Haram has dramatically increased the use of children in suicide bomb attacks on civilians in Nigeria, UNICEF reported Tuesday.

In total, 55 attacks used girls, often younger than 15 years old, 27 used boys and one even used a baby strapped to a young girl to carry out a suicide bomb attack.
A total of 19 children were used in such attacks last year, reports AP….
“There were two girls taught by Boko Haram to be suicide bombers … The girls confirmed that they were taught that their life was not worth living, that if they die detonating the bomb and killing a lot of people, then their lives will be profitable,” Nigerian aid worker Rebecca Dali said, as cited by Reuters.
So far, 1.7 million people have been displaced by the Islamist insurgency in the northeast of the country, 85 percent of whom come from Borno state, the main focus of such attacks.
The insurrection is now in its eighth year, having claimed the lives of more than 20,000 and forced more than 2 million people to flee their homes, reports Reuters.
At least 170 people have been killed since June 1 of this year.
Mercado added that while Boko Haram has not claimed responsibility for all such attacks, no other group is yet known to employ such tactics….
