Watch out for Boko Haram’s new bombing tactics -Army

The Nigerian Army has alerted citizens of new tactics beig employed by Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram, in carrying out their nefarous activities.
The Defence Headquarters revealed on Monday, that Boko Haram terrorists have devised means of gathering people to ensure a high casualty rate in their bomb attacks.
A statement was released to this effect by Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, Acting Director Defence Information.
“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.”
Consequently, the Defence Headquarters has advised Nigerians to be wary of ‘such antics of the terrorists who are losing out in their former enclaves and are now desperate to remain relevant by using any means to perpetuate fear in the minds of the populace.’
