Beware: Boko Haram Insurgents Disguise As Menial Workers


BEVERLY HILLS, December 14, (THEWILL) – The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has urged Nigerians to be observant as Boko Haram insurgents now disguise as menial workers to carry out attacks on communities.

This was disclosed by Rabe Abubakar, Defence Spokesman, in a statement citing the recent bombings in Madagali, Adamawa state, and in Maiduguri, Borno state, as results of Boko Haram's new antic.

“The defence headquarters wishes to alert members of the public of another antic being employed by the escaping Boko Haram terrorists that were smoked out of Sambisa forest by the combined efforts of the Nigeria armed forces,” he said

“Available information indicates that some fleeing Boko Haram terrorists are now disguising as menial workers to melt into communities and towns with a view to organising terrorists attack against our innocent citizens.

“The unfortunate recent incidents in Madagali and Maiduguri are instructive.

“The defence headquarters therefore advises citizens to be on the alert and be wary of these tricks of the defeated terrorists who are hell-bent on remaining relevant in spite of their lost battle.

“The sensitisation became necessary to create security awareness to citizens to be conscious of some strange faces that could take menial jobs in their communities or towns, especially now that festivities are around the corner.”
