Muslims, all members of Boko Haram, have increased the level of their cruelty and sadism, by stealing teenagers and forcing them to kill their parents, in their strategy to recruit and make them members of their jihadist group.
Yan St. Pierre, the CEO of the Berlin-based security consulting firm MOSECON, explained the nature of this horrific brutality:
By making them kill their own parents or their own family it makes them be in a position where they can’t go back… Psychologically they are absolutely broken. They killed their parents. They literally murdered what brought them to life. In that sense, their loyalty becomes to the only family that they have now, which is the army or the terrorist group that kidnapped them.
Boko Haram is also taking little girls, strapping bombs onto them, and using them as walking explosives. As Pierre says:
They’re taking these little girls now and using them as weapons… So it’s a double use by kidnapping girls.
A pastor named James Wuye is consoling and spiritually helping these children, saying:
These young people out there in the forest [are]without hope now… Their only hope is to die. We should save them. I think we should pity everybody on each side. This violence is affecting both the perceived victim and the aggressors.
