Nigeria Listed Among 12 Insecure Countries For Children To Live by adex84: 11:50 pm On November 21, 2020
A group is known as "Save the Children International" (SCI) has included Nigeria into the list of the countries dangerous for children to live in.

Nigeria which was just listed as an insecure country for children to live joined the other eleven countries like, Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan, Yemen, DRC, Mali, CAR, Iraq, South Sudan and Sudan.

The group released the list on Friday said in their report that children are victims of disasters, attacks, rape and different kinds of abuse.

“A total of 93,236 children have been killed or maimed in conflicts in the last 10 years, with more than three million children living in an area where violence had been raging for 18 years or more.

“The number of children recruited by armed forces rose by 639 in 2018 to 7,845 in 2019. Over 3,100 children were found to have been recruited in the Democratic Republic of Congo alone.

“Many were victims of airstrikes, shelling, landmines and other explosive weapons used in populated areas where families have been ripped apart and tens of thousands of children left dead or scarred for life.

“Last year alone, more than a third of the verified child casualties were caused by explosive weapons – with the number dramatically higher in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria,” said Inger Ashing, CEO of Save the Children International in the report.

I pity the innocent children who have been wickedly killed by bandits in this nation.
