A statement by the spokesman of the Defence Headquarters, Rabe Abubakar, the suicide bombers are now targeting worship places, worshipers and other soft targets.

“The unfortunate suicide attacks in Madagali in Adamawa State and the University of Maiduguri in Borno State are recent occurrences in this direction.

“In view of this, the DHQ is reminding our citizens, especially those in the North East, to be conscious of this development and to equally take other measures including but not limited to deploying vigilante and other security apparatus during worship session with a view to complementing  the efforts of the military and other security agents.
