Statement from the Defense HQ, Monday have revealed a new Boko Haram bombing strategy that Nigerians should be wary of.
The tact is to gather as many people as possible to become victims to their attacks. Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, Acting Director Defense Information enlightened Nigerians on this.
“Some of such tactics they now use include crying and feigning pains and shouting to attract sympathy from unsuspecting public. 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.”
“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. Yola suicide incident is fresh in our memory.”
