I've read an article about children in Nigeria as young as 3years old being kidnapped to be trained as soldiers in rebel groups. Even more disturbing is that beating, slavery and starvation are included in their training and girls are often raped by the commanders. I know that only the government can resolve this kind of trouble but what actions are being done to stop this? No child deserves to be given the options 'kill or be killed'.

This is truely shameful things are going on and that should be stopped .we all know kids are our future and if they will destroy the future like this then what will happen to that country. For this government should take some strict actions and follow them strictly too. Even the citizens should do for their self respect.
