Boko Haram devises more tricks to lure victims

22 December 2015, 11:12

Abuja - The Boko Haram sect has reportedly devised tactics such as crying, feigning pains and shouting to attract sympathy from unsuspecting members of the public.

The Defence said this was meant to lure and inflict harm on innocent citizens to further their terrorist cause.?

It is reported when a lot of people of goodwill gather to render help in the process, the suicide bomber detonates bombs which they conceal under their clothes.

"The recent suicide bombing in Damaturu is instructive," said Rabe Abubakar, ?Acting Director: Defence Information?.

He said similarly, suicide bombers used monetary incentives and other inducements especially in crowded places to lure innocent citizens in order to cause colossal damage to both lives and property.

"The Yola suicide incident is fresh in our memory.?"
The Defence Headquarters therefore advises citizens to be wary of such antics of the terrorists.
?The Defence Headquarters also warned citizens to be extra vigilant and weary of terrorist malevolence in such places as parks, worship centres and recreation spots particularly in this festive period.

"Citizens are advised to report suspicious persons or objects to security agencies for prompt action," said Abubakar.
