A statement signed by Hajiya Binta Ibrahim, the council’s Public Relations Officer, described the act as “unthinkable and despicable.’’

On Tuesday, the Nigerian Army disclosed that some parents in Borno State were donating their daughters to Boko Haram to be used as suicide bombers.

In the light of this, Ibrahim advised parents and guardians in Borno to stop the practice.

She said it was inhuman to donate children to be sacrificed for whatever reason or motive.

She appealed to traditional and community leaders and other well-meaning Nigerians especially in the North-East, to dissuade parents from donating their daughters or wards for indoctrination and suicide bombing missions. (NAN)
