Netizens have reacted after a photo of a 10-year-old boy identified as Bello Abdulkadir Ado, holding a gun as security personnel in Katsina State hit online.
The child is said to be a member of a vigilante group in Katsina State’s Safana local government district. The image, which was posted on social media, elicited a mixed response, with many accusing it of child abuse.
DoctorDree: See wahala…….How can they hand over arms to a 10year old boy to fight as a vigilante…..The gun is even taller than the boy standing plus how does he know who and who not to shoot,He is even wearing the uniform as kaftan,probably a shirt of one them was given to him……This country matter ehn e tire person no be small!!!
NaijaGoBetter20: Ok. Now I see why we should separate, because no sane community or parent will allow underage child to hold gun. The guy is to kill what? The police guy standing behind self dont know what to say
Pathokpo: This is so wrong. The use of child soldiers has long been aborted and condemned in the UN charter on combat. It definitely will affect the child in the long and short run both psychologically and socially. He could also be easily manipulated by his commanders to carry out illegal orders since he doesn’t fully understand the concept of good and evil.
Karemarealty288: In the same State ….there is an ongoing polo tournament in preparation for the Royal wedding of Yusuf Buhari and Princess of Bichi…..while the Sai Baba/4×4 advocates are now donating their 10yrs old children to watch their back and even contributing monies in advance for communal ransom payment……Oya enjoy your Next Level.
