The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has informed members of the public, particularly those in the North-East, that the fleeing remnants of Boko Haram terrorists, in their desperation to unleash terror on the people, have laid land mines on stretches of farm land.
The Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. Rabe Abubakar, in a statement on Tuesday, also alerted the public that terrorists now operate with horses to carry out attacks on isolated villages and communities along the fringes of our borders in the North-East.
Abubakar said “a recent attack using horses readily come to mind in this regard”.
According to him, these latest tactics of the terrorists are a grand design to cause fear and panic among the farmers as well as the local populace.
He assured that the security forces will continue to be on their trail until they are completely flushed out of our country.
