The Deputy Director of Publicity of the State Security Services (SSS), Mrs Marilyn Ogar has blamed last Monday’s suicide bomb attack at a luxurious bus park in Kano on Nigerians for relaxing about their security with the improved security in the region.
She made the remark while responding to questions on whether there has been a lull in the performance of security operatives in the northern part of the country with the return of daily attacks in Kano in the last few days.
Mrs Ogar stated that there wasn’t a lull, but “maybe Nigerians became too relaxed because there was a little bit of respite”, referring to recent arrest and onslaught the security forces made on hideouts of the sect members.
She claimed the operatives have being able to take out the leadership of the fundamentalist sect and that it is some loose cannons of the sect who are trying to “find their feet” that are staging these new attacks.
Almost a hundred lives were lost in the suicide bomb attack on the luxurious bus park of the commercial city and a host of other attacks against security officials have been recorded in the last two days.
