In a statement released by the deputy director, information of the SSS, Marilyn Ogar, Nigerians were asked to be on the lookout as the robbery may the handiwork of terrorists’ elements that may want to perpetrate acts of terror using such garments. The statement reads in parts, “On 20th August, 2014, about 0400 hours, some yet to be identified persons broke into a tailoring shop located at No.55 Odutola Street, Sabon Gari, Kano, and stole about thirteen (13) pieces of Reverend Sisters’ regalia of the Catholic Church. With the recent trend in female suicide bombings in the country, the removal of these regalia may be the handiwork of terrorists’ elements that may want to perpetrate acts of terror using such garments. “Consequently, this Service has taken necessary pre-emptive measures to thwart the exploitation of distinct religious wears for terrorist purposes.” The DSS therefore called on all to continue to cooperate with law enforcement agencies by providing useful information on suspicious activities within their immediate environment.
