‘Boko Haram now hide explosives under vegetables’ – Nigerian Army

The Army has alerted Nigerians that Boko Haram insurgents have come up with a new strategy of concealing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

According to the Army, the insurgents have taken up the practice of hiding explosives under ‘vegetable wares in carts and wheelbarrows and move to crowded places where they detonate them for maximum casualties’.

A statement was released to this effect on Thursday, by Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, Acting Director Defence Information of the Army.

“In continuation with the sensitization of our citizens on the devilish strategy of the terrorists, the Nigerian Military authorities have discovered that the Boko Haram terrorists are determined to continue letting off bombs and have resorted to masquerading as fruits and vegetable vendors wheeling Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) as groceries into crowded areas.”

“The terrorists now hide IEDs under vegetable wares in carts and wheelbarrows and move to crowded places where they detonate them for maximum casualties. The recent terrorists attack in the North East is a case in point.”

“Having been effectively dislodged and decimated the BH terror group has begun some systematic isolated attacks mainly on soft targets in their desperation to remain relevant.”

“The Defence Headquarters hereby advises the general public to constantly be alert to this latest terrorist tactics and to report promptly any suspicious persons or objects to the nearest security agency.”
