Following the coordinated military offensive against the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in Sambisa forest, fleeing terrorists now disguise as vigilantes or hunters to evade easy detection, the Defence Headquarters has said.

The terrorists, according to a statement issued by Acting Director of Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, after being smoked out of Sambisa forest, in their desperation to wreak havoc on innocent Nigerians and to remain relevant, have devised a new tactics of dressing like vigilantes or hunters to deceive unsuspecting members of the public of their true identity.

Abubakar cited the case of Kuda-Kaya village in Madadali community of Adamawa State where a group of Boko Haram terrorists, dressed like vigilantes and opened fire on elated people during a ceremony. The statement warns the general public to be wary of unsubscribed services or presence of vigilantes or hunters in their neighborhoods in order not to ignorantly harbour killer gangs in their midst.

“Members of the public are also advised to be security conscious at all times, and to report promptly to security agencies of any suspicious persons or group of persons in their community or raise alarm, where necessary,” the Defence spokesman said.
