The Adamawa State Government has revealed that the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists are now pretending to be epileptic or stomach pain patients where large numbers of people gather to seek sympathy and later detonate bomb.

The State Government, while urging Nigerians to be careful of the new tactics, said it has embarked on advocacy across the state to parents to also teach their children not to collect gift from people they don’t know.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen in Abuja, yesterday, Adamawa State Commissioner for Information Mr. Ahmad I. Sajoh, said: “The government is taking proactive measures, but it is difficult to read the minds of people who are satanic.

“We are also doing advocacy to tell people not to fall for such tactics. We have had it in the past, the first bomb blast in Yola was like a street fight. Two persons pretended to be fighting and people gathered to watch and they detonated the bomb.

“The second one, they went to a tipper garage where labourers were buying food, they declared the food free of charge, paid the woman and started giving people N500 as gift, then people rushed down and gathered and then they detonated the bomb.

“We have now understood and going on advocacy to the parents to tell their children not to collect something from people they don’t know.”

While narrating how the terrorists were able to detonate bomb that killed two children last week, the commissioner said: “What happened last week was very simple, a man was driving a vehicle and he stopped somewhere he saw some children playing, he gave them a parcel to take to their parents but unfortunate for these kids and fortunate for the parents, it was suppose to be a timed bomb, but children continued playing and did not immediately take the parcel to their parents.

“And by the time they took the parcel to their parents, the bomb exploded and two of the children, age 8 and 7, died immediately while three others were injured.”
