“We are Here Celebrating Sallah”- Boko Haram Taunt Army In New Message

Loading...

Terrorist sect Boko Haram released a new message taunting the Nigerian Army, who had been given a 40-day ultimatum to crush the group, saying that they are enjoying Sallah in Sambisa forest and that leader Abubakar Shekau is still alive and well.

In the new video, a commander of the sect who was swapped for the release of 82 Chibok girls, appeared and mocked the military while also threatening that they could attack at any time.

He said; “We have observed the Eid-el-Kabir prayers peacefully with our brothers, wives and children in Sambisa forest under the leadership of Abu-Muhammad -Ibn-Mahammad Abubakar Shekau.

“We thank Almighty Allah for sparing our lives to witness this very wonderful day and good state of health. We want to tell the infidels of the world, infidels in Nigeria and even small ants like Buhari and his attack dogs like Kukasheka and Buratai who gave 40-day ultimatum to kill our leader, Abubakar Shekau that here we are celebrating Sallah in Sambisa.

“I also want them to know that killing Shekau is not the end of us. With or without Shekau Boko Haram will remain. They should know we worship God and Shekau is only leading us on the path of service to the Lord.”

He added that they were ready to attack and were just waiting for the command from Shekau, “They should know that just as they are giving orders to their military to invade our camps; we are also waiting for Shekau’s orders to invade their barracks, towns, and cities at any given time.

“I have said it before and you have seen what I have done. I am not making empty noise; I guess you know who is talking to you, this is ‘Moni’. You have seen what we did in the university and the city of Maiduguri and other places.”

“We mean everything we are saying, and you should wait we are coming after you. We will never dialogue with the government.”

Boko Haram mocks Army, calls Buhari ‘a small ant’ over Shekau

​A Boko Haram Commander, Shuaibu Moni has mocked the Nigerian Army and government over their failure to capture its leader, Abubakar Shekau within 40 days.

Moni, who was part of the Commanders swapped for the release of the 82 Chbok girls in May, said despite the expiration of the ultimatum, they were celebrating Sallah in Sambisa forest.

Moni described President Muhammadu Buhari as “a small ant” over the inability of the military to either capture Shekau dead or live.

According to Moni, “We have observed the eid-el-Kabir prayers peacefully with our brothers, wives and children in Sambisa forest under the leadership of Abu-Muhammad -Ibn-Mahammad Abubakar Shekau.

“We thank Almighty Allah for sparing our lives to witness this very wonderful day and good state of health. We want to tell the infidels of the world, infidels in Nigeria and even small ants like Buhari and his attack dogs like Kukasheka and Buratai who gave 40-day ultimatum to kill our leader Abubakar Shekau that here we are celebrating Sallah in Sambisa.

“I also want them to know that killing Shekau is not the end of us. With or without Shekau Boko Haram will remain. They should know we worship God and Shekau is only leading us on the path of service to the Lord.

“They should know that just as they are giving orders to their military to invade our camps; we are also waiting for Shekau’s orders to invade their barracks, towns and cities at any giving time.

“I have said it before and you have seen what I have done. I am not making empty noise; I guess you know who is talking you, this is ‘Moni’. You have seen what we did in the university and the city of Maiduguri and other places.

“We mean everything we are saying, and you should wait we are coming after you. We will never dialogue with the government.”

Four United States congress members have visited Maiduguri, the military theatre of operation to access the counter-insurgency war in the northeast.

Leader of the team, Sen. Christopher Coons, announced Tuesday more support by the US to Nigeria to boost the fight against Boko Haram and terrorism in the region.

“We came to see the hard work that the Nigerian military is doing here. The US is in great support of the counter-terrorism and insurgency war by Nigeria and she will continue to support it. We’ve identified more areas of cooperation on security and war against terror,” Coons told newsmen after a meeting with military commanders at the Military Command and Control Centre (MCCC), Maimalari Barrack, Maiduguri.

“The US has been supporting the fight against insurgency and has assured of more support,” Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, said.

The Senator, who spoke on behalf of a congressional delegation from the United States of America led by the US Ambassador to Nigeria to the Headquarters, Theatre Command. Operation LAFIYA DOLE, Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri, also commended the efforts of the Military Command and Control Centre on the achievements made in the ongoing operations.

Boko Haram Defeat: Military giving Buhari wrong information – Kamale

A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Adamu Kamale, has said the Military was giving President Muhammadu Buhari wrong information about Boko Haram.

Kamale represents Michika/Madagali Federal Constituency of Adamawa State, where the insurgents had attacked and abducted residents.

In an interview with Punch, the lawmaker said the insurgents were still very much strong and capable of conducting attacks.

“I am from this place (Madagali) and I can authoritatively tell you that my people are not safe. The military are always feeding Mr. President with the wrong information that things are normalising; it’s not true.

“We are happy that Mr. President made a reference to the Boko Haram issue in his broadcast to the nation when he returned from his medical vacation to the United Kingdom. He spoke of stepping up the war against Boko Haram and other forms of insecurity.

“However, we advise Mr. President to match the broadcast with actions because the insurgents are truly killing more people than he is even aware of, particularly in Michika/Madagali Local Government Areas of Adamawa State.

“In the past few days, over 10 lives and over 200 houses have been lost again. The security reports he gets on these two local governments are not detailed.

“The situation here is worse than the reports he gets from the military,” Kamale stated.

Boko Haram: US finally sells N181bn warplanes, weapons to Nigeria

​The Headquarters of the United States Department of Defence, the Pentagon, has informed the US Congress of the sale of 12 Super Tucano A-29 ground attack aircraft and weapons to Nigeria to fight the Boko Haram sect in the northern part of Nigeria.

According to Reuters, the Pentagon communicated the sale of the 12 ground attack aircraft valued at $593m (N181bn) to the US Congress on Monday.

The report quoted Pentagon’s Defence Security Cooperation Agency as having made the announcement to the US legislature.

The Super Tucano A-29, “an agile, propeller-driven plane with reconnaissance and surveillance as well as attack capabilities is made by Brazil’s Embraer.”

Nigeria is expected to receive formal notification within weeks, setting in motion the deal with Nigeria.

They added that the arrangement would call for Nigeria purchasing up to 12 Embraer A-29 Super Tucano aircraft with sophisticated targeting gear.

Nigeria is expected to cough out $600m for the weapon.

Boko Haram attacks 2 Adamawa villages, cart away relief items

Members of the Boko Haram sect, yesterday, burnt down Bayan Dutse and Kubu communities of Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The incident left 14 residential houses destroyed after the terrorists carted away relief items meant for Bayan Dutse village.

 

 

Also, four houses were set ablaze in Kubu village which was predominantly occupied by women, children and aged men, as the youths have deserted the community due to a renewed onslaught by terrorists.

A reliable security officer from Gulak, headquarters of Madagali Council Area, whose relatives and parents were victims of the renewed attacks, said: “It is unfortunate that most of our communities in Madagali Council Area have been under renewed siege by the Boko Haram.”

Efforts to get Borno State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Victor Isuku, proved abortive as he was away on a weeklong conference in Abuja.

Happening Now!! See What Boko Haram Did In Borno village over members’ arrest

Boko Haram insurgents have killed six men in Kijimatari village in northeast Borno on Tuesday, AFP reports.

It reported that 9 terrorists stormed the village at 2am, broke into the homes of six men and slit their throats.

It was learnt that the village chief was one of the victims.

“The attackers evaded a nearby military checkpoint by entering the village through bush paths,” said Ibrahim Liman, the head of a local anti-jihadist militia force.

“The chief of the village was among the victims and it was clear the victims were deliberately targeted.”

Local resident Kulo Musa said that while the attackers had carried guns, they “chose to use knives” to avoid alerting soldiers manning a nearby checkpoint.

He said it was a reprisal attack for the arrest of two Boko Haram members who moved into the village claiming to have been displaced from their homes by the jihadists two months earlier.

“We believe the attackers suspected the six people they killed of tipping off the military which led to the arrest of the two Boko Haram fighters,” he said.

BREAKING: See New Tactics Of Boko Haram, Their Latest Move Will Shock You

The Boko Haram terror group in northeast Nigeria have sent out 83 child bombers against Nigerian targets this year, according to a tally by United Nations Children’s Fund.

This is four times as many child suicide bombers used in all of 2016, the UNICEF said.

The UN agency said out of the 83 children deployed by the insurgents, 55 were girls, mostly under 15 years old and 27 were boys. One was a baby strapped to a girl, and in total, nineteen children were used last year, UNICEF said.

The Boko Haram insurgency, now in its eighth year, has claimed over 20,000 lives and forced more than two million people to flee their homes over eight years.

The frequency of suicide bomb attacks in northeastern Nigeria has increased in the past few weeks, killing at least 170 people since June 1, according to a Reuters tally.

UNICEF, in a statement released on Tuesday, said it was “extremely concerned about an appalling increase in the cruel and calculated use of children, especially girls, as ‘human bombs’ in northeast Nigeria. The use of children in this way is an atrocity”.

Boko Haram is trying to create an Islamic state in the Lake Chad region, which spans parts of Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad. It gained notoriety by abducting more than 200 girls from the northeast Nigerian town of Chibok in April 2014. Aid groups say it has kidnapped thousands more adults and children.

Children who escape are often held by authorities or ostracized by their communities and families. Nigerian aid worker Rebecca Dali, who runs an agency that offers counseling for those who were abducted, said children as young as four were among the 209 escapees her organization had helped since 2015.

“They (former abductees) are highly traumatized,” Dali told Reuters on Monday at the United Nations in Geneva, where she received an award from the Sergio Vieira de Mello Foundation for her humanitarian work.

Her team, which includes former police officers, identified some returnees as having been trained as suicide bombers.

“There were two girls taught by Boko Haram to be suicide bombers … The girls confirmed that they were taught that their life was not worth living, that if they die detonating the bomb and killing a lot of people, then their lives will be profitable,” Dali said.

Some 450,000 children are also at risk of life-threatening malnutrition in 2017 by the end of the year in northeast Nigeria, UNICEF said.

President Muhammadu Buhari, has also given fresh orders to the service chiefs to clamp down on every security threat in the country including the Boko Haram terrorists.

The full UNICEF Press statement reads below:

Abuja, Geneva, 22 August 2017 – UNICEF is extremely concerned about an appalling increase in the cruel and calculated use of children, especially girls, as ‘human bombs’ in northeast Nigeria. Children have been used repeatedly in this way over the last few years and so far this year, the number of children used is already four times higher than it was for all of last year.

Since 1 January 2017, 83 children have been used as ‘human bombs’; 55 were girls, most often under 15 years old; 27 were boys, and one was a baby strapped to a girl. The sex of the baby used in the explosion was impossible to determine.

The use of children in this way is an atrocity.Children used as ‘human bombs’ are, above all, victims, not perpetrators.The armed group commonly known as Boko Haram has sometimes, but not always, claimed responsibility for these attacks, which target the civilian population.

The use of children in such attacks has had a further impact of creating suspicion and fear of children who have been released, rescued or escaped from Boko Haram. As a result, many children who have managed to get away from captivity face rejection when they try to reintegrate into their communities, compounding their suffering.

All of this is taking place in the context of a massive displacement and malnutrition crisis – a combination that is also deadly for children.

There are 1.7 million people displaced by the insurgency in the northeast, 85 per cent of them in Borno State, where most of these attacks take place.

Northeast Nigeria is one of four countries and regions facing the spectre of famine, with up to 450,000 children at risk of severe acute malnutrition this year.

UNICEF is providing psychosocial support for children who have been held by Boko Haram and is also working with families and communities to foster the acceptance of children when they return. This includes providing social and economic reintegration support to the children and their families.

UNICEF also supports reconciliation activities in northeast Nigeria, led by respected community and religious leaders, including influential women, to help promote tolerance, acceptance and reintegration.

Boko Haram: Fed Govt approves N3 billion for schools in North-east

The federal government has approved N3 billion through the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC to be used to rehabilitate schools affected by Boko Haram insurgency in the North-east.

The Executive Secretary of UBEC, Hameed Bobboyi, said the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, gave the approval for the funds to assist in basic education in the North-east.

“Our intervention has to come with re-establishing teaching and learning process, students have to be re-convinced to return back to school, ” the executive secretary said.

Mr. Bobboyi also said UBEC has agreed to build model schools in each senatorial zone, as the schools would serve as backbones of the system, adding that in the next five years, the commission has plans of building these schools in all the 774 Local government areas in Nigeria.

 

He noted that by the end of September 2017, the commission would produce a National Basic Education Sector Plan, saying there was a need for the nation to plan on strategic areas to be able to build the solid foundation needed for the development of the nation.

The North-east has been invaded by Boko Haram insurgency that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and displaced many more.

The UBE programme is a nine- year basic educational programme, which was launched and executed by Nigerian to eradicate illiteracy, ignorance and poverty as well as stimulate and accelerate national development, political consciousness and national integration.

Boko Haram’s Original Intention Was Not To Abduct Us – Chibok Girls

​More information around the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls from Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents in 2014 has emerged through secret dairies kept by the girls.

One of the authors of the dairies, Naomi Adamu wrote that the insurgents had come to the school on that night in April 2014, to steal machinery for house building and when they could not find what they were looking for, the militants were unsure what to do with the girls.

“One boy said they should burn us all, and they (some of the other fighters) said, ‘No, let us take them with us to Sambisa (Boko Haram’s remote forest base) … if we take them to Shekau (the group’s leader), he will know what to do,” She wrote.

Naomi Adamu was among 82 of the Chibok girls released by Boko Haram in May – part of a second wave after 21 of them were freed in October. They are being held in a secret location in Abuja for what the government has called a “restoration process.”

The authenticity of the diaries, written by Adamu and her friend, Sarah Samuel, cannot be verified, nor their intended role as the government negotiates with Boko Haram for more releases but a copy was obtained exclusively by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

According to the diaries, they started documenting their ordeal, in passable English, with some parts scribbled in less coherent Hausa, a few months after the abduction, when Boko Haram gave them exercise books to use during Koranic lessons.

To hide the diaries from their captors, the girls would bury the notebooks in the ground, or carry them in their underwear.

The diaries shed light not only on the horrors the girls endured under Boko Haram, but their acts of resistance, and their staunch belief that they would one day go home. They even devised amusing and mocking nicknames for the fighters.

Boko Haram Slaughters 42 Farmers In Fresh Attack

No fewer than 42 farmers from Aliero town, in Aliero Local Government Area of Kebbi State have reportedly been slaughtered by suspected dislodged members of the Boko Haram terrorists.

The terrorists were reported to have fled Borno State while escaping from the war zone areas.

Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu who confirmed this, on Wednesday, while addressing World Health Organization (WHO) delegates, said the victims went to Borno State for farming before they were murdered.

The WHO delegation had visited Kebbi on a courtesy visit.

Governor Bagudu says, “Just last week I was informed by one of my Commissioner that 42 farmers who are from Aliero were slaughtered by Boko Haram in Borno.

“They allowed one of them to come home free to say what happened to them”.

Governor Bagudu added that over 7,000 displaced Nigerians, who crossed over to Niger Republic, were recently re-deported to Kebbi State thereby compounding the challenges faced by the State.

While acknowledging low immunisation of children against diseases in the state, Governor Bagudu said the influx of children from Benin and Niger Republics including IDPs camps in the state, posed great threat to success of the exercise.

Speaking earlier, representative of WHO in Nigeria, Dr. Wondimagegnehu Alenu, told Governor Bagudu they had discovered that there was low immunisation in the state.

He stressed that there was need for government to embark on routine immunisation of children against diseases.

Ozubulu Massacre: Who is Responsible, ‘Bishop’ or Shekhau? (Fresh Revelations)

By Uche Aguoru

I was left with no option but to believe the police over the early morning church massacre which left 13 people dead and 27 down with various degrees of injuries, until the recent appearance of the man in the eye of the storm, chief Aloysius Ikegwuonu (aka Bishop), whom the police had told us, is a notorious drug dealer whose complicated drug business had led to the unfortunate incident going by police account.

Even the parish priest’s account of the incident of the 6th of August 2017 at St. Phillip’s Catholic Church, Ofufe-Amakwa Ozubulu, when the federal government delegation led by labour and productivity minister Dr. Chris Ngige visited the community did not change my mind from the police position, as his account did not provide me with a direct linkage to such unmitigated disaster.

The priest who before the deputy Governor and federal government delegation, while giving account of the massacre asserted that the gunman blindly sprayed bullets left to right as he walked along the isle, and dispelled the account that the murderer used torchlight in search of faces. He said those that survived were the ones that ran out of the church and others whose survival instinct moved to lie flat on the floor. “He finished the first magazine, loaded another and finished it,” the Rev. Fr. Said

The priest’s account offered a very sharp deviation from the Anambra state police Commissioner’s position whose investigations were concluded within hours after the sad and unprecedented incident in this part of the country, though his position corroborated various social media accounts, written and audio, on how a drug war between two Ozubulu indigenes and another online account also narrated how a drug war between Bishop and an Mbaise friend of his, led to the Ozubulu black Sunday.

H.R.H Igwe Oruche, the Traditional ruler of Ozubulu in Ekwusigo LGA, recollected that the catastrophe in his town began roughly 10 years ago when Ozubulu Development Union, ODU, which has a branch in South Africa, wanted to elect a new president-general there, and the crisis led them into coming back home for settlement until they had to go to the church to take a Christian oath of peace which also broke down shortly after, according to the royal father the crisis had persisted and has led to a couple of Ozubulu indigenes losing their lives both at home and in diaspora.

While the IPOB and its members had believed that it was the Abubakar Shekau’s Boko Haram that came to attack the Catholic Church in Ozubulu pointing at style of operation as evidence.

But seeing the same Aloysius Ikegwuonu (Bishop) moving about freely and visiting the victims in their hospital beds, dashing them money in full police protection after we had been meant to believe that the police is after him and have released the INTERPOL on him, I began to feel more uncomfortable with the police side of the story which I had swallowed without thinking it over. The surfacing of the man, the police claimed to have declared wanted under full police protection, raised so many questions within my mind.

What really happened in Ozubulu?  What are the police trying to protect? Why has Bishop not taken legal action against the police for character assassination if indeed he is not guilty, and if he is guilty as alleged by the police, why has he not been arrested? Did the police truly arrest anybody in connection with the massacre as claimed, if yes, what are their confessions.

I know that within the next few weeks we all will forget it happened in our usual docile nature and the living will move on with their lives while the dead will be buried.

But one thing that I am convinced within my spirit is that, there is more to the Ozubulu massacre than the police are willing to let us know.

BREAKING: Boko Haram kills 3, abducts 3 in Maiduguri

​Corpses of two brothers and another person allegedly slaughtered by Boko Haram near Molai village were brought to Silimri ward of Maiduguri Wednesday evening.

According to local hunters led by Ahmadu Tukur, Boko Haram elements killed one of their colleagues same day, and abducted three other children about few kilometres from Molai village.

“We were told that some boys went to farm near the federal government food reserve and they did not return home.

“We mobilised and went on search of them only to discover their bodies, their hands tied behind their back and their heads completely cut off and placed on their back.

“This is typical of the way Boko Haram operates. The other body, we don’t know about him but we brought the three corpses to the house of the Bulama in Silimri ward.”

According to him, the federal food reserve area was very dangerous as Boko Haram militants were said to have often come around on their motorcycles and have been seen on several occasions by villagers around Molai.

He said, although the area had been declared no go area by the military on many occasions, villagers and some people within Maiduguri have not been adhering to the warning by security operatives.

“Boko Haram have been attacking people around that spot, even soldiers have been attacked around that particular area, but some people still go there in the name of going to farm and they get killed, some are being abducted by Boko Haram,” he added.

Commotion in Borno Village as Boko Haram Insurgents Strike Again, Kill Farm Workers

​Two tractor drivers were killed by Boko Haram insurgents in Jere Local Government Area of Borno, Alhaji Muhammad Dilli, the state Commissioner of Agriculture, said, NAN reports.

Dilli told newsmen in Maiduguri that the insurgents attacked the tractor operators while working on a farm “in the past few days’’.

He listed the slain tractor operators as Kashim Bukar and Shettima Mustapha.

The commissioner said that the upsurge in the Boko Haram insurgents was a major challenge facing the agriculture sector in the state.

Dilli added that thousands of farmers had returned to the farms in the liberated areas, in spite of the insurgents’ attacks.

However, he said, most of them could not go to the farms for fear of the insurgents’ attacks.

“The state government had procured farm inputs and modern agricultural equipment but it could not distribute them to farmers due to the insurgency,’’ he said.

The commissioner also disclosed that the state government had spent over N40 billion on agriculture development programmes in the past six years.

He said that government had adopted proactive measures to re-engineer and transform agriculture from the debilitating effects of the Boko Haram insurgency.

He also said that the state government had procured 15, 000 tones of assorted fertilisers, 1,000 tractors and 25 combined harvesters.

Dilli added that over N700 million were also spent on procurement and distribution of seedlings to displaced farmers in liberated areas.

He noted that the gesture was to assist the displaced farmers and encourage them to go back to the farms.

According to him, the ministry had encouraged cultivation of ginger in Biu, Chibok, and Damboa, adding that about six trucks of the produce were produced in Hawul Local Government Area.

He also disclosed that over 7, 000 goats were distributed to the women among the displaced farmers to enable them to engage animal husbandry and encourage livestock production.

The commissioner reiterated the government’s commitment to reinvigorate agriculture, enhance farmer support services, promote their enterprising skills and add value to the produce.

Many feared dead in fresh Boko Haram attack in Adamawa

Many people have been reportedly feared dead on Thursday in fresh Boko Haram attacks in Ghumbili community in the Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The attack comes a few days after a similar incident in a neighbouring village in the Local Government, known as Mildu, where seven people were killed by the insurgents.

Confirming the attack, the Chairman of Madagali Local Government Council, Mr. Yusuf Muhammed, told newsmen that the attack lasted from 11 p.m. on Wednesday to 3 a.m. on Thursday.

He recounted that the jihadists burnt no fewer than 60 houses and looted foodstuff.

“They looted foodstuff, killed livestock and burnt the village completely,” he stated.

Muhammed said that the exact number of dead and injured people had yet to be ascertained and that villagers who escaped the attack were currently taking refuge at Gulak, the headquarters of the council.

But the Spokesman of the Police Command in Adamawa, Mr Othman Abubakar, who also confirmed the attack, said that no life was lost.

He said, however, that houses were destroyed in the attack–the latest in a string of deadly blows on mainly soft targets in Nigeria’s troubled northeast.

Speaking on the development, the Executive Chairman of the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency, Mr Haruna Furo, said that only one person was killed and that many houses were destroyed.

The resurgent activities of the insurgents prompted Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to order Nigeria’s military chiefs to move their command base to Maiduguri in order to tackle the Boko Haram fighters more effectively.

Boko Haram: Army offers N.5 million cash reward for information on suicide bombers

​Following the increasing spate of suicide attacks by the deadly Boko Haram sect, particularly with the recent suicide attack on Zannari ward in Maiduguri, where two female suicide bombers detonated themselves in the process of attacking the community on Friday, night, the Nigerian army is offering a cash reward for any member of the public with information on suicide bombers.

A statement on Saturday, evening from Brigadier General Sani Usman Kukasheka, Director Army Public Relation Officer, gave an emergency number through which the military can be reached.

” You can report by calling 193 on any network. The public is also please reminded that the Nigerian Army’s offer and reward of the sum of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00) to anybody that provide information about suicide bombing, is still valid,” The statement said.

The Nigerian Army also appealed to religious, traditional and community leaders, as well as all well-meaning Nigerians especially in the North East of the country, to help dissuade people from donating their daughters or wards to Boko Haram terrorists for indoctrination and suicide bombing missions.

The statement said, “This appeal became expedient in view of recent revelations by some intercepted female suicide bombers during interrogations.

“It was discovered that most of these hapless minors were “donated” to the terrorists sect by their heartless and misguided parents and guardians, as part of their contribution to the perpetuation of the Boko Haram terrorists’ dastardly acts against the Nigerian society and humanity.

“The acts of these parents and guardians are not only barbaric, but condemnable and unacceptable. Nigerians have a responsibility and obligation to collectively mould our children and wards and define a better future for them rather than condemning them to death by the criminal Boko Haram terrorists and their sympathizers through suicide bombings.

“Consequently, the public are kindly requested to be more vigilant, security conscious and report any suspicious persons or those whose daughters or female wards are missing or have not been seen recently. “
