Metro Why Boko Haram is Using Female Suicide Bombers



Boko haram is using female suicide bombers because they are less suspicious.

Daily Post reported that Police Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, who spoke at the National Information Centre, said, "Established international terror organisations use female suicide bombers, the major reason is because women generally raise fewer suspicion.

"If you have been following the trend of terrorism worldwide, you will understand that the use of a female suicide bomber is not new.But, it is a new trend in our own part of the world".

"We are developing counter-terrorism strategies to deal with that. By our rules of engagement and by our culture too, male security operatives generally are not allowed to search females. You will see increase in female security personnel on roads and in other places where stop and search exercises are being carried out.

"Nigerians should be prepared to see more female police officers, bomb disposal experts, DSS operatives and soldiers in combat operations".
