Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters (DHQ) says it has uncovered a new tactic being adopted by female suicide bombers in the North East.
It says that the female suicide bombers now evade detection from security operatives by carrying babies on their back, which ordinarily passes them for innocent nursing mothers, reports Channels Television.
The report quotes Acting Director, Defence Headquarters, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, as saying in a statement: “The DHQ wishes to seize this opportunity to appeal to members of the public to be patient and cooperate with the military and other security agencies, while carrying out thorough security search and checks as the essence is to reduce the murderous intention of the Boko Haram suicide bombers.
“We also wish to further state that the usual traffic “go-slow” at military and security check points as a result of rigorous security checks, are not meant to cause public discomfort or a deliberate action to induce traffic disruptions on our roads.
“Efforts have been put in place towards protecting the lives and properties of our innocent citizens.”
DHQ, according to the report, “also urged the public to always volunteer useful information to the military and other security agencies that would assist in exposing Boko Haram and their evil machinations in the society, which will make communities safe and secure for all to live.”
