Nigerian forces were yet unable to stop a suicidal bomb attack when a seven year old girl blew herself along with killing nine others and injuring nineteen more in a suicidal bomb attack. According to the security officials the girl was turned away from entering the market area four times as there wasn’t anything for the girl over there, but the girl managed to enter the market when the security officials were busy in screening other people. With nobody noticing the girl was trying to pass from under the ropes a little far away from the security officials sight and it was then when the explosives went off. This wouldn’t be the first time when the terrorists have used a child in their plans. Women and children have become easy prey under the terrorists hand.
Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan while speaking on the blast accepted that in the beginning he and his team had underestimated the Islamist group Boko Haram but now the military is acquiring more arms and ammunition to battle the terrorist group and he was even confident that they will be able to curb the terrorist threat that is looming large over Nigeria.
