The terrorists reportedly strap explosives on the cows and then send them into populated communities before detonating the bombs.
The sect’s new strategy was disclosed by the Coordinator of the National Information Centre (NIC), Mike Omeri during a press briefing on Thursday, December 4, in Abuja, New Telegraph reports.
“Sometimes, they strap bombs around cows, and push them to settlements. That is why we have been calling for more vigilance and total collaboration and cooperation among citizens,” Omeri said.
“We urge all citizens to be patient, when you are subjected to searches and checks; it is something that we have to live with. It happens all over the world, especially when we are faced with what we have,” he added.
Boko Haram is also believed to have resorted to using women for its attacks after a recent upsurge in bombings carried out by female suicide bombers in the troubled North-East.
