27 dead after Boko Haram attacks on Nigerian villages

Cape Town - Almost 70 members of the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram have surrendered in north-eastern Nigeria.

In a press release on Tuesday, the UN Agency reported that out of the 83 children deployed by the terror group, 55 were girls, mostly under the age of 15. The sex of the baby used in the explosion was impossible to determine.

UNICEF said the trend worsened the sufferings of children in the insurgency now in its eighth year, adding that the children so used as " human bombs" were victims and not perpetrators of the crime.

The use of children in this way is an atrocity.

The eight-year quarrel by the Sunni jihadist group intended at establishing a hard-line Islamic Caliphate has left at least 20,000 people dead and banished 2.6 million, which is creating one of world's major humanitarian catastrophe literally.

"As a result, many children who have managed to get away from captivity face rejection when they try to reintegrate into their communities, compounding their suffering", the agency said.

"Air and artillery bombardments were backed by long range patrols and ambushes targeted at preventing fleeing Boko Haram insurgents from escaping and also denying them access to logistics supply", he said.

Northeast Nigeria is one of four countries and regions facing the spectre of starvation, with up to 450,000 children at risk of severe acute malnutrition this year. "This includes providing social and economic reintegration support to the children and their families." the agency stated.

Suspected Boko Haram fighters killed at least 11 people and abducted eight others in an overnight raid on a village in northern Cameroon near the Nigerian border, officials said on Friday.

The Nigerian Army yesterday said 68 Boko Haram insurgents surrendered to troops in Borno in the last three weeks.
