JTF Kill Three Boko Haram Members Disguised As Women In Maiduguri

Security sources have revealed that the operatives of the Joint Task Force shot three gunmen to death. The men were allegedly disguised as women and attempted to attack a police station in Maiduguri.
The gunmen, who were suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect were attempting to attack the popular Ibrahim Taiwo Extension Police Station.
But a tip-off from residents gave the security operatives opportunity to lay ambush on the attackers, and they opened fire as the suspects advanced in a “suspicious manner,” a source said.
The Boko Haram have lately changed their tactics by using women or putting on female clothes with arms hidden under their gowns, in order to beat security checks.
Women are subjected to less screening by security operatives to respect Islamic and Hausa culture.
