Boko Haram faction, Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), allegedly used 8-year-old boy to execute Christian hostage, Daciya Dalep in Borno State.
Rita Katz, Director of SITE Intelligence Group, an organisation which tracks the activities of jihadist groups, made the revelation on Twitter.
She tweeted: “There is NO end to ISIS’ immorality. A child, approximately 8, featured in a video 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.”
Dalep was a student of University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID).
He was murdered a few days before the execution of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Rev. Lawan Andimi.
Andimi was abducted by Boko Haram when they attacked Michika early January 2.
Gagdi appealed to Nigerians to render all the needed support to the security agencies in their quest to end insurgency in the country.
