There are strong indications that terrorists are currently employing new tricks to beat security checks.
Among such moves is the recruitment of physically-challenged people to carry out their dastardly acts in some parts of the country.
The recruitment of these set of persons, as gathered, was to allow easy access into states like Lagos.
This came as the Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obaniko, yesterday in Lagos, described Boko Haram sect’s declaration of Gwoza town in Borno state as an Islamic caliphate, as a ‘temporary madness’ that would
soon disappear, saying there would never be another republic within Nigeria.
Military sources hinted that following intelligence report on the use of people with disabilities by the Boko Haram sect, screening of physically challenged persons, particular those using tricycles had begun.
The disclosure as gathered, followed the confessional statement of the physically challenged man arrested recently at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos,
with combustive substance.
A military source, who spoke on condition of anonymity however assured that the Military was on top of the situation.
