Boko Haram Recruiting, Training Child Soldiers [Photos]

Boko Haram terrorist group has released some pictures showing children undergoing religious and combat training in a camp.

According to the images obtained from SaharaReporters, young children dressed in combat-style clothing and balaclava were seen participating in martial arts training, weapon handling training, and religious education class.

At least two instructors and one child had what appeared to be the Zastava M21, likely captured from Cameroonian security forces, HumAngle reported.

The Zastava M21, built based on the Kalashnikov design, has appeared in previous pictures shared by Boko Haram factions or reported to have been recovered by security forces.

Some underage children were also shown holding different Kalashnikov pattern assault rifles with under folding, side-folding, and fixed wooden stocks.
