Metro Military Reveals New Tactics of Boko Haram



The military on Monday said that Boko Haram terrorists have devised other means of inflicting harm on innocent citizens to further their terrorist cause.

Rabe Abubakar, a Brigadier General and acting Director Defence Information, in a statement said some of such tactics Boko Haram now used included 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,” it said.
