Following the success so far recorded by Nigerian troops in collaboration with the Multinational Joint Task Force (MJTF), Boko Haram terrorists have once again reverted to the use of suicide bombers.

Nigerians are, thus, urged to be vigilant against potential suicide bombers.

Spokesperson of the Directorate of State Security Services (DSS), Marilyn Ogar, said in a statement issued over the weekend in this respect:

“It has become evident that following the successful sustained air raids and intense combat operations by the military on insurgents’ positions in the North-East which had effectively degraded the capacity of the terrorists, its members are now in disarray and have resorted to taking out their anger on hapless civilians and soft targets. This development accounts for the recent spate of attacks recorded in Yobe, Kano, Borno and Plateau States with intent of distracting security forces.

“Accordingly, this Service wishes to advise the public to be vigilant, especially in crowded environment, and when travelling. Commuters should desist from boarding unmarked vehicles along the road and only use designated motor parks. We also reiterate our call on motor park managers to ensure proper screening of vehicles, persons and luggage entering their premises. They should also look out for new faces who show up as drivers and conductors.”

It was learnt that some of the explosive devices used for suicide bombing were stolen from quarry industries within and outside the country.

MJTF has so far frustrated the insurgents that it is now difficult for them to strike in Nigeria and run to neighbouring countries who have sealed off their borders against the terrorists.

In the last two weeks, several towns and local governments in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States, including the training facilities and logistic dumps of the insurgents have been reclaimed by gallant Nigerians troops.
