The National Orientation Agency, NOA, on
Thursday warned of planned terror attacks in the
South-West region by Boko Haram.
Consequently, NOA, has advised schools,
churches and mosques, among other usually
crowded places, on the need to put measures in
place to arrest any possible attack.
A statement released in Ado-Ekiti by the state
Director of NOA, Mr. Dayo Famosaya, said the
alarm had become necessary because of the need
to be security conscious and W@TCH out for
strangers in their neighbourhood.
Famosaya, in the statement entitled Public
information on security consciousness and
awareness, said Boko Haram fighters may have
infiltrated the South-western part of the country,
going by the content of security agents reports.
He said: “They have threatened to deploy cluster
bombs in the zone. These cluster bombs are
usually housed in discarded metallic materials
such as cans of beverages and soft drinks.
“The bombs may be concealed in bags and for it
to have more grievous effect, they have planned
to deploy these bombs in crowded places such as
schools, markets, stadia,
churches and mosques.”
It warned the public to W@TCH out for people
wearing flowing apparel, as it was the type of
cloth they wear to hide their weapons
