Boko Haram terrorists now disguise as hawkers to attack crowded areas – DHQ



The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) disclosed Thursday, they have discovered that the Boko Haram terrorists are determined to continue letting off bombs and have resorted to masquerading as fruits and vegetable hawkers wheeling Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) as groceries into crowded areas.

A statement by Acting Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, the terrorists now hide IEDs under vegetable wares in carts and wheelbarrows and move to crowded places where they detonate them for maximum casualties. The recent terrorists attack in the North East is a case in point, the statement said.

According to Abubakar, “Having been effectively dislodged and decimated the BH terror group has begun some systematic isolated attacks mainly on soft targets in their desperation to remain relevant.

“The Defence Headquarters hereby advises the general public to constantly be alert to this latest terrorist tactics and to report promptly any suspicious persons or objects to the nearest security agency,” the statement said.
