ALERT: DSS warns of plans by female terrorists in Catholic sisters’ regalia to bomb Nigeria

Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services [DSS], has raised the alarm that suicide bombers, dressed in the regalia of Catholic Church’s reverend sisters, might be planning to bomb locations in the country.

In a statement Saturday morning, the spokesperson for the DSS, Marilyn Ogar, said some unknown “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,” Ms Ogar said.

She continued: “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.”

In circulating the statement, Ms. Ogar specially requested the media to give her release “maximum publicity considering the issue and timing, especially as tomorrow is Sunday”.

Female suicide bombers wearing hijab had in July descended on Kano, setting off explosives and killing innocent citizens.

They were believed to have acted at the behest of the extremist Boko Haram sect which has for years been perpetrating acts of terror in Nigeria.

    Is that their next plan? Oh! They want to rub catholic church in to it abi?

  • nigerian

    This is not news worthy and it is something that will cause more confusion. Stealing a dress that any tailor can make and materials readily available in the market. If it were military or police uniform that would have made more sense. Anyway they want us to start suspecting any catholic sister we see. Kudos DSS for creating more confusion.

      Thats my thoughts exactly.

      Sometimes it is better to keep your mouth shut or refrain from punching those miserable 3rd hand keyboards of yours. I do not intend to educate but it is might interest you to know that the confusion is not in DSS alerting the geographical space called Nigeria on the need for vigilance but the fact that we are running a full blown continent like a country. Nonsense!

      God bless the Niger Delta Republic

    Weldone DSS for the prompt alert. But where were you guys when they were preparing to disguise in HIJAB. MAY GOD THE ALMIGHTY SAVE US FROM THE EVIL HAND IN WHATEVER FORM IT COMES.
