The Nigerian military has announced that the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) now have female bombers dress in men’s attire to enable them have access to mosques unhindered to detonate their bombs.
The Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. Rabe Abubakar, said in a statement on Friday that the latest suicide attack in the mosque at Molai Umurari village in Borno State was instructive in this regard.
Therefore, he said, members of the public are advised to be wary of suspicious persons, irrespective of sex, at worship places, markets and public entertainment centres.
The DDI noted that having been effectively dislodged and decimated, the splinter cells of the remnant Boko Haram terror group still engage in some systematic isolated attacks, mainly on soft targets in their desperation to remain relevant.
“The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) hereby advises the general public to constantly be on alert to this latest terrorist tactics and to report promptly any suspicious persons or objects to the nearest security agency,” he said.
Rabe also urged the local vigilante and communities to “device more proactive measures to curtail such ugly happenings to complement security agencies, as security is everybody’s concern”.
