After this teen boy made the bombs, who exploded them? Other children: the number of children who’ve been sent on bombing missions by Boko Haram terrorists in 2017 quadrupled compared to 2016. Everywhere there are Muslims, there is conflict, strife, hatred and murder. Jihadis the world over fight the same cause and use the same playbook, the Quran. This is savagery on an industrial scale, but the global “human rights organizations” are too busy looking for instances of islamofauxbia to take any significant notice.
“15-Year-Old Claims He Made 500 Bombs for Boko Haram,” by Frances Martel, Breitbart, July 4, 2018 (thanks to Todd):
Nigeria’s national news agency, NAN, published an interview on Monday with a 15-year-old boy whom the government-run agency says admits to building 500 bombs for the Islamic State affiliate Boko Haram since his abduction at age ten.
Ali Goni is one of thousands of Nigerian children abducted at a young age by Boko Haram. If his claims are true, he is one of an innumerable mass of Nigerian children whom Boko Haram has used as child soldiers, cooks, engineers, and suicide bombers. For much of 2017, Boko Haram appeared to particularly covet the abduction of young girls to use as suicide bombers, as they aroused the least suspicion in public areas that the group likes to target.
According to NAN, military authorities identified Goni as “the most deadly Boko Haram member, who had mastered various techniques that can cause the maximum destruction of lives.” Goni says he specialized in building underwear Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) during his time with the terrorist group, and built more than 500 of them.
In the interview, Goni says he was originally from Bama state and was kidnapped and smuggled into the Sambisa forest in northeastern Borno state, the last remaining Boko Haram stronghold in the nation.
“We underwent various training in the camp. During the course of our induction training, I was selected to be trained on bomb-making technique, bomb detection as well as identifying and demobilizing explosives,” Goni reportedly told NAN. “I refused initially, but they said they would kill my mother just like the way they killed my father when they stormed Bama. So I eventually agreed. During the training, many of my colleagues died while trying to make bombs. At the end I emerged the best of all.”
Goni says he survived due to his skill in building bombs and not accidentally detonating them, the cause of death for all those his age whom he knew in captivity.
Police arrested Goni and have placed him in a Boko Haram refugee rehabilitation camp in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.
Like Boni, the Nigerian military is working to “de-radicalize” hundreds of Boko Haram terrorists and their victims in rehabilitation camps, many abducted as children and forced to study the Quran and absorb Islamic State propaganda. This week, the Nigerian government announced that 260 people interned at a de-radicalization camp had completed their programs and will soon be fully reintegrated into society….
