The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has alerted the general public on the spate of the use of military uniforms by some unscrupulous elements who disguised as personnel of Nigerian Armed Forces to get access to public places to commit crimes as well as detonate their explosives to kill innocent citizens.
Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, Acting Director of Defence Information, in a statement issued on Saturday, said recent arrest of a fake Major in uniform and the killing of four security operatives guarding a facility in Rivers State by some unknown gunmen in military uniforms were instructive in this regards.
“While the military and other security agencies are exploiting all means to end the insurgency,” the Army said: “Militancy and all other forms of criminalities in the country, we wish to request the general public to be on the watch in all public places and report any suspicious person or group posing as military personnel to security agencies to cut off his or her heinous intention to save our citizens.
“The general public is further advised to be more vigilant in crowded places as terrorists can disguise in any form to achieve their evil intents including the use of military uniforms.”
