WHAT: As Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram expands across the region and have starting using children in suicide bombing, ActionAid’s Country Director in Nigeria, Hussaini Abdu is available for interviews on:

  1. How more must be done to stop Boko Haram terrorising and killing innocent people.
  2. How Boko Haram has enacted a country wide and increasingly region wide campaign of terror, kidnapping innocent children. Forcing children into becoming suicide bombers is the latest in Boko Haram’s campaign of abuse.
  3. While stopping children carrying out suicide attacks is important, more should be done to rescue children forced into doing Boko Haram’s bidding.

WHO: Child rights experts in Nigeria and London (In studio, down the line and on Skype).
