Insurgents have now devised a new means of hiding their explosive devices to unleash terror on hapless citizens during the sallah cerebration, investigations have revealed.

The insurgents, in order to avoid suspicion especially with the public now wary of abandoned polythene bags or sacks, now package their Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in school bags for suicide bombers.

This was the observation of the Joint Task Force (JTF) in Kano State after a joint operation with operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) led to the discovery and subsequent raid of a bomb making factory in Guduwawa village in Gezawa Local Government Area of the state last Tuesday.

The new approach, the JTF said, was copied from Boston in the United States where two brothers, reportedly dropped their back packs containing explosives in the midst of a crowd at a marathon race, killing three and injuring many last April.

An operative of the JTF told newsmen that the IEDs can be packaged in any type of school bag, adding that the IEDs control switch is stitched to the handle of the bag and only needs to be switched on for the explosive to be triggered.

“They will just carry it on their back and walk into any place or their target without people knowing or suspecting as they will be mistaken for students. This is a dangerous trend,” he said.

In a joint press conference, the Commander of the 3 Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Kano, Brigadier General Iliaysu I. Abbah and the state’s Director of DSS, Mr. Bassey Eteng said the packaging of IEDs in school bags was the latest trend to avoid quick detection by the terrorist group.

Explaining further, Mr. Eteng said the plan of the terrorist group was to be using young persons of school-age as suicide bombers during the forthcoming Sallah and that the IEDs recovered from the factory in Guduwawa was capable of killing 1,000 persons.

“People should beware of the latest IEDs the terrorists are producing; it is packaged in a school bag for suicide bomber. They can carry it into the mosque, church and even schools. This is what happened in Boston; this trend is kind of copy-cat thing. People should be on look out,” he explained.

Shedding more light on the discovery, General Abbah said, “This is the first time we are recovering something like this. They primed the IEDs in bag unlike the previous ones”.

He also disclosed that the security operatives recovered materials the terrorists are using for the manufacturing of the school bag IEDs.

He listed the materials as three primed cylinders of IEDS; one primed explosive suicide back pack, 18 empty IED cylinders, 24 detonators, small bags of fertilizer, IED timers, cortex wires and three remote controls.

Yep. That sounds like the sort of thing these morons would be happy to do.

Why are we still funding them then? Here's Israel the Euro's villain who gives so much to the world and here's the favored child of the Euros who can only think to find new ways to inflict destruction, pain and suffering. What is wrong with this picture. I think Muslim extremists have more in common ideologically at times with the Aryan Brotherhood than they do with most Muslims.

Perhaps the reason we're still funding them is because our leaders are in bed with them.

Know what I mean?

Now take OBummer , he said that he doesn't make the decisions.....the bond people do. And who controls the bond people? The secret societies that deal with black magick and also use the dark side of G-D. Yep,
they even use the Sacred Names and the rituals go back before King Solomon. Almost all of the power/money people are in these secret groups and they worship Creator acknowledging both the good and the evil he can do.

Most people like to think that Creator is a sweetheart. He ain't!!!! He tells us, again and again in scripture "I do good and I do evil." "Shall there be evil and I not do it." He's in charge of karma and when we get what we have earned we can call it evil.

Moses said and Isaiah said Creator is "a man of war".

And we have been "kicking him out" of our schools, our courts our lives.
We have told him "We don't want you."

So what is a G-D to do. Especially if he is a man of war. And even more, when he has emotions. He cried
tears over Israel, the OT prophet said.

America and Israel have forgotten their Higher Power.

Come back, America. Come back, Israel. Return to the God who can be
your salvation.

Another thread of the sick society that we are allowing.

Michael K.,

That's very astute, because in fact the Muslim Brotherhood was handsomely supported and trained by the Nazis. Not only that, but the Nazis taught the Muslim Brotherhood the art of purely false propaganda, and much of the Muslim Brotherhood's propaganda artwork is based directly on the Nazis. The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (started by Hasan al Bana) sent thousands of MB soldiers to Nazi Germany for training. The Nazis supplied the MB with arms and money. They were mutual admirers of each other, as well as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.

The next thing they should do is outlaw back packs where ever there is a crowd of people. It seems that's the only way to stay ahead of those hate mongers!! After all that seems to be their target all the time is go where a bomb exploding will do the most damage to life! And look at the shape of their economy and the state of mind and the health of those people in those terrorist countries! No inventions like what Israel does only inventions on how to murder and maim!!
