The DSS has warned Nigerians this morning to be watchful of females in Catholic Church Reverend Sisters’ regalia because they could be female bombers. Ms. Ogar said some unknown people broke into a tailor’s shop in Kano and took away 13 pieces of the sister’s regalia.
Female suicide bombers wearing hijab had in July descended on Kano, setting off explosives and killing innocent citizens after disguising. Find the press statement from the DSS’ office after the cut.
On 20th August, 2014, about 0400 hours, some unidentified persons broke into a tailoring shop located at No.55 Odutola Street, Sabon Gari, Kano, and stole about thirteen (13) pieces of Catholic Church Reverend Sisters’ regalia. With the recent trend of female suicide bombings in the country, the theft of these regalia heightens concerns about the possibility of terrorist elements using same to perpetrate acts of terror.
2. Consequently, this Service wishes to draw the attention of the public to this development and to call on all citizens to be more circumspect and exercise greater vigilance with users of such peculiar attires. We therefore enjoin all to continue to cooperate with law enforcement agencies through the provision of useful information on suspicious activities within their immediate environment.
This Service will continue to collaborate with all stakeholders as we strive to keep our country safe. Marilyn OGAR, msi
