Troubled by the effects on children of the insurgency in parts of the North East of the country after a visit to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Kuchingoro in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), little Miss Splendour Joe King set about writing a book titledThe Effects of Terrorism on Children.
Just nine years of age, the year 5 student of Unique Blossom Schools in Maitama, Abuja was inspired to take on the topic that even adult scholars might have difficulty tackling, following a visit she and her family made to an IDPs camp in the FCT, where she interviewed a number of people, including children.
The book is scheduled to be launched on June 18 2015, at the International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja.
