The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has warned that Boko Haram terrorists are planning large scale bomb attacks during this month of Ramadan. The Ramadan fast started yesterday June 6th and would see many Muslim faithful converge in their different Mosques to say their prayers and break their fast.
A statement by Defence spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, said intelligence report gathered by the military indicates that the sect members are planning to carry out large scale bombings. Abubakar said this in a statement released June 5th.
“Against this background, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) wishes to once again advice the general public to be watchful of strange persons and objects in their localities. Particularly around places of worship and to promptly report same to security agencies. This is to also advice that adequate security and surveillance be evolved by respective places of worship to forestall any unwholesome act by some unscrupulous elements. The DHQ urges law abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses while efforts are being made to eliminate the remnants of the terrorists from their hideouts as well as address other security challenges in the country”he said
