A 12-year-old IDP from Gwoza in Borno state identified as Subairu has declared that when he grows up, he would become a soldier and dedicate his time to hunting and killing Boko Haram terrorists.
Subairu who promised to kill at least 1,000 Boko Haram terrorists lamented the living conditions in camp. He also disclosed how much he missed his relatives especially his grandmother and father, Tribune reports.
He also appealed to the federal government to come to their aid.
“It is true that some of us don’t have shoes or sandals to wear. When I grow up, I want to be a soldier. I want to be able to kill the Boko Haram terrorists. I want to kill at least 1,000 of them. We don’t have anything in our house here in the camp. I miss Gwoza. I miss my grandmother, my father and my other relations in Gwoza. I don’t have a school uniform. It is not easy coming to school without these things,” he said.
Also, another 12-year-old, Aliyu Bakura, begged the government to provide them with food, uniforms and sandals.
“During the break time, we have nothing to eat. We don’t eat anything throughout school hours. We have food at home, but it is not enough to bring to school. My father and mother are in the house. I have three brothers and a sister in the school. We are from the Bama local government area of Borno state.
"My teachers teach me very well. I learn all the subjects. I want to become a doctor when I grow up. I want the government to help us. They should give us food, school uniforms and shoes,” he pleaded.
