The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has discovered a ploy by Boko Haram terrorists to unleash terror on the people, especially in the Northeast.
A statement by defence spokesman, Rabe Abubakar, said the fleeing remnant terrorists have laid landmines on stretches of farmland.
“It is instructive to alert the public that terrorists now operate with horses to carry out attacks on isolated villages and communities along fringes of our borders in the Northeast. A recent attack readily comes to mind. These latest tactics of the terrorists is a grand design to cause fear and panic among the farmers and the local populace. The security forces will be on their trail until they are driven out of our country.
“While the military and other security forces are doing everything possible to neutralise these mine threats, citizens are advised to be mindful of strange and suspicious objects in their farmlands and localities, as well as be wary of those coming on horses as they can be terrorists. They should report these to security forces,” Abubakar said.
