Child Soldier Wields Gun, Displays Military Precision Taught By Boko Haram

share on:

A video clip taken by one member of the Nigerian army depicts a seven-year-old boy demonstrating military training with a wooden gun in his hands.

The child was displaying his moves to the Nigerian army commanders as he’d been trained by the Islamist sect, Boko Haram.


While watching the child display a series of army training moves with a fake gun in his hands, the soldier said, “He is showing how they move, how they advance. 

He shows the standing position, the kneeling position, before they started advancing. He is showing backwards crawling, this is the way they crawl. This is a very small boy of seven years.”
