An 8-year-old boy who is a member of Boko Haram faction, Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), have allegedly executed a student of the University of Maiduguri, Daciya Dalep in Borno State.

This was made known in a post on Twitter by Rita Katz, Director of SITE Intelligence Group, an organisation which tracks the activities of jihadist groups.

She wrote: “There is NO end to ISIS’ immorality. A child, approximately 8, featured in a video by its Amaq Age executing Nigerian Christian prisoner under its ISWAP in Borno. Kid warns Christians: “We won’t stop until we take revenge for all the blood that was spilled.”

“The video is not just another piece to ISIS’ honed-in targeting of Christians of recent years, but also a throwback to its older propaganda from Iraq & Syria of brainwashed children carrying grisly executions. This new video from ISWAP shows a repeat of the same indoctrination.”

Naija News recalls that Revd. Lawan Andimi, the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika LGA of Adamawa, was abducted by the terrorists following a failed attack on Michika LGA by the dreaded Boko Haram sect on January 2, 2020.

It will be recalled this online platform also obtained and published a video of the CAN chairman who spoke out from Boko Haram custody where he expressed hope of been rescued from the insurgents.

In the video released by respected journalist, Ahmad Salkida, Rev. Andimi, however, declared that if its pleased God that he would not get out of captivity, they should look after his children.

However, Andimi was on Monday killed by members of the Boko Haram group after they had initially demanded the payment of ransom for his release.
