The Defence Headquarters this evening alerted the public, particularly those in the North East, that Boko Haram terrorists “have laid land mines on stretches of farm land in their desperation to unleash terror on the people.”

Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, said in a statement: “It is also instructive to alert the public that terrorists now operate with horses to carry out attacks on isolated villages and communities along fringes of our borders in the North East. A recent attack using horses readily come to mind in this regard.

“These latest tactics of the terrorists is a grand design to cause fear and panic among the farmers as well as the local populace. The security forces will continue to be on their trail until they are completely flushed out of our country.”

According to the Defence Spokesman, “While the military and other security forces are doing everything possible to neutralise these mine threats, individuals and citizens are advised to be mindful of strange and suspicious objects in their farmlands and localities as well as be weary of those coming on horses as they can be terrorists and to report same to the security forces for prompt action.”
