Girl: My father gave me to Boko Haram
26 December 2014, 08:59
Kano - A 13-year-old girl says her father gave her to Boko Haram extremists and that she was arrested after refusing to explode a suicide bomb at a market in Kano, Nigeria's second largest city in the north.
She says she told her captors she did not want to be a suicide bomber but allowed them to strap her into a vest primed with explosives because they threatened to bury her alive.

Police presented the girl at a news conference on Tuesday night.
