The query is premised on the fact that there are some female suicide bombers in Nigeria. That suicide bombers are not good for a healthy social dynamic, They cause death and wide spread havoc. Accordingly, one female suicide bomber is one too many. By that measure the rate is high.
Yes, there is a high rate of female suicide bombings in Nigeria. The statistics on suicide bombing bear this out. Female suicide bombers are often able to carry out their missions because they are largely ignored. This is because people expect men to carry out these bombings. This makes it much easier for females to perpetrate them.
Boko Haram, has employed suicide bombers as a terrorist tactic in their insurgency against the Nigerian government since 2011. As of mid-2014, however, reports began to emerge of an alarming new dimension: the use of young women and girls in suicide missions. The first reported case of a female suicide bomber occurred on June 8, 2014, when a woman detonated her bomb near army barracks in Gombe state of Nigeria. Since that time, the rate of suicide bombings carried out by women has steadily increased.
It has been two and a half years since the first reported use of a female suicide bomber in Nigeriaby the terrorist group Boko Haram in July 2014. It has also been reported that there has been a steady increase in the use of female suicide bombers since then. To be clear, any rate above 0% in this category is too high. The trend that occurred in 2015 in which female adolescents were being used as suicide bombers against the Nigerian government is sickening and disturbing. But despite these facts that suggest certain rates are highER than they have ever been, none of these events can allow for the conclusion that female suicide bombing rates are HIGH in and of themselves.
