The video was shared by Rita Katz who is the Director of SITE Intelligence Group an organisation involved in tracking the activities of jihadist groups, said,

“It is not just another piece to ISIS’ honed-in targeting of Christians of recent years, but also a throwback to its older propaganda from Iraq and Syria of brainwashed children carrying grisly executions.

President Buhari has condemned the killings and has promised to deal with the insurgents.
