Al-Shabaab female suicide bombers- The new terror tactics

04 October 2012, 04:43 Roggers Momata

Police in the country have now confirmed that indeed the Al-Shabaab militants and their sympathizers have come up with new terror tactics which include deploying their female counterparts in carrying out their operations. “The Al-Shabaab have trained and deployed female suicide bombers to carry out their planned attacks in the country,” said Police Spokesman Eric Kiraithe.

Speaking while issuing the report, Kiraithe highlighted that his department has issued guidelines that would be used by hoteliers, landlords, public service vehicles and the general public that would be used in assuring all concerned parties of their security concerns. He stressed that the group has now sought to include their female members in attacking their security officials together with unsuspecting innocent public members.

“We have received vital information courtesy of our intelligence that indicates that the militia is out to cause chaos by any means necessary. We hereby urge all public civilians to co-operate with our security officials so as to enhance the security measures taken so far,” said Kiraithe in a statement. He also added that the retaliatory attacks were as a result of their defeat over Kisamayo Port.

All PSV (Public Service Vehicles) operators have been urged to take the necessary measures as a way of assuring all public commuters of their security. “More emphasis should be given to luggage, cargo and other goods being transported on our roads. Do remember that one can be charged for aiding and abating crime by way of failing to take the preventive measures stipulated,” reiterated the Spokesman.
