A teenager, Amina Yusuf, paraded by the military on Wednesday in Maiduguri, said she failed to detonate her explosive because she did not subscribe to Boko Haram ideology.
The 17-year-old told journalists in Maiduguri that she was abducted five years ago, alongside her parents, in Madagali in Adamawa, after a terror attack on the village.

“I was abducted alongside my parents in Madagali in Adamawa after the terrorists attacked our village. We were taken to a camp in the bush where we were forcefully indoctrinated by the group,” she said.
The suspected suicide bomber said her parents were killed after they refused to be indoctrinated .

“My parents were executed because they did not join the group.
“I was married off to a Boko Haram militant with whom I lived in the camp,” she said.
“One day I was asked to wear the bombs. I was brought to Maiduguri with an instruction that I detonate the bomb where there is large crowd of people,” the teenager added.
She said that she declined to detonate the explosive because she did not want to die.

“They said I should press the button but I refused and allowed security men to capture me alive.
“My four siblings are still with the terrorists in the camp,” Yusuf said.
Lucky Irabor, Maj.- Gen. and the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, had presented her along with two unidentified girls to journalists during a weekly briefing in Maiduguri. (NAN)
