The Adamawa Government has commenced public enlightenment on how to identify a suicide bomber, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The campaign sponsored by the Adamawa State Security Council included jingles on radio and television stations as well as distribution of English and Hausa language posters on how to recognise a suicide bomber.

One of the posters being distributed by a team from the state Ministry of Information led the Commissioner, Malam Ahmad Sajoh, now on advocacy visit to traditional rulers in local government areas, contain 16 points on security awareness and how to identify a bomber.

According to the poster, a suicide bomber could, among others, be identified based on appearance and behaviours as he moves towards his target.

“Wears loose clothing giving the impression that the body is disproportionally larger than the head or feet.

“He or she appears to be focused and vigilant and may be fervently praying to him/herself- giving the appearance of whispering to someone.

“Display no response to authoritative voice or direct salutation.

“Demonstrate forceful action (to reach a desired target by pushing their way through a crowd or restricted area).”

It also provided security hotlines for people to call in case of any emergency.

The special lines include: 08021366660 and 09038800688. (NAN)
