Knowledge they say is power and in this light, the Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai has given some tips on how to identify suicide bombers.

Speaking during a visit to the Emir of Mubi in Adamawa State where suicide bombers struck last week, Gen. Buratai said the security situation had improved in the town compared to three years ago, even though there were still pockets of suicide attacks.

He said: “This is the time we should reflect on what went wrong and ensure it does not happen again.

“The situation requires vigilance. Suicide bombers disguise in different ways. People can identify them by the abnormal way they dress.
