The Adamawa State government has commenced public enlightenment on how to identify a suicide bomber, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The campaign​,​ sponsored by the Adamawa State Security Council​,​ includes​ jingles on radio and television stations as well as distribution of English and Hausa language posters on how to recognise a suicide bomber.

One of the posters being distributed by a team from the state Ministry of Information led the commissioner, Ahmad Sajoh, now on advocacy visit to traditional rulers in local government areas, contain 16 points on security awareness and how to identify a bomber.

According to the poster, a suicide bomber could, among others, be identified based on appearance and behaviours as he moves towards his target.

“(He or she) wears loose clothing giving the impression that the body is disproportionally larger than the head or feet.

“(He or she) appears to be focused and vigilant and may be fervently praying to him/herself- giving the appearance of whispering to someone.

“(He or she) Display​s​ no response to authoritative voice or direct salutation.

“(He or she) Demonstrates forceful action (to reach a desired target by pushing their way through a crowd or restricted area),” the poster read in part.

It also provided security hotlines for people to call in case of any emergency.

The special lines include: 08021366660 and 09038800688.

    This useless Adamawa state government will soon have its citizens murdering innocent women in Burka with this their rubbish message.
    Besides, do not think suicide bombers don’t listen to radio?

    • NoSpinEd

      An ongoing psychological profile is a necessary part of civil defense. Do you have a better suggestion that is more effective? I am sure the potential victims in Adamawa would be grateful to hear it.

      • Shugaba Nkasa

        Why would Adamawa state government educate the citizens on how to recognize suicide bombers?
        To what end? What are the citizens supposed to do with such information? Arrest the bomber?
        Call the emergency number?

        You should note that The disclosed characteristics are not particular to suicide bombers…and even if they were, the terrorist need only change their behavior to twat the effort.
        Meanwhile, this nonsensical Government has just put a target on every single one its indigenes that happen to be in a stressful condition or hurry.

        Imagine the immediate effect of such a hair-brained idea. You are waiting at the bus stop and because of Adamawa state Government radio, you are now actively and stressfully scrutinizing everyone around you, trying to detect which one may be a suicide bomber.
        Your efforts do not go unnoticed because your fellow citizens at the bus stop are doing exactly the same thing to you and everybody else ….and before you know it, we have a bus stop full of suicide bombers. Chaos!

        You asked if we have a better suggestion? YES!
        The Adamawa State government to shut the hell up!
        Even law enforcement officials do not know what to do with suicide bombers talk less of civilians.

        A rational Government would have told the citizens to go about their business and not worry about anything…..sadly Adamawa State does not have a rational government.

          If it wasn’t so serious, your post would be hilarious, but you are quite right. Innocent people will be lynched, people will live in a state of absolute fear and paranoia, which means BH has won. Simples.

            Thank you sir/madam !

      • Shugaba Nkasa

        The very act of teaching the citizens how to identify terror suspects/suicide bombers is itself an act of terror unleashed on the citizens by their own government . Moreover, the unspoken message underlying the radio broadcast is that Adamawa State Government is incapable of protecting her citizens.

        The people elected their Government to look out for them, not for the elected Government to come and tell them how to look out for themselves.
