Boko Haram female Jihadist in Nigeria now using babies in suicide bombing attacks. Could some of these women be among the over 200 kidnapped Christian school girls in 2014? 

According to BBC News on attack involving babies was on January 13th in the town of Madagali and Adamawa State. According to reports, two women passed a vigilante checkpoint disguised as mothers and were carrying babies. An innocent disguise for a sinister and deadly plot. 

The female jihadists killed themselves, two babies, and four other people when they successfully carried out the bombing, according to officials. Boko Haram, which has been carrying out terrorist attacks in Nigeria since 2009 with the aim of driving out all Christians from the country, has also reportedly used kidnapped girls as bombers on a number of occasions in the past. 

Fears rose in December that Boko Haram forced some of the over 200 Christian schoolgirls it kidnapped from the town of Chibok in 2014 to be part of its terror attacks. A main concern is that some of these women carrying out attacks could in fact be part  of the group of Christian girls kidnapped. International Christian Concern is quoted in an article by Christian Post saying, 

"We pray for the many families in Nigeria, who continue to wait for news about their abducted daughters and live in fear, that one of theirs may have blown herself up in a crowded market," 

There have been testimonies of girls who managed to escape Boko Haram and the atrocities they’ve lived are unthinkable for any child, for any woman, for any person.
