Schoolgirls that have been abducted by the Nigeria-based Boko Haram Muslim terror group are now being seen on the battlefield fighting on behalf of the terror entity, leading some to believe that they are being forced to join the murderous group.
Witnesses in Nigeria told the BBC that the young female soldiers are now being used as foot soldiers for the group, with some being used to “terrorize other captives” and “carrying out killings themselves.”
Three women who escaped Boko Haram told the BBC that a handful of schoolgirls have been “brainwashed” to run operations in support of the jihadi organization.
The fighters said, according to the escapee: “You women should learn from your husbands (who they were forced to marry) because they are giving their blood for the cause. We must go to war for Allah.”
