Renowned security   expert, Dr. Ona Ekhomu, yesterday, raised an alarm over the use of convoys by terrorists who were being mistaken for politicians in some northern states of the country.

Consequently, he called for a ban on political campaign convoys in the affected states until the terrorists were rooted out.

Ekhomu also urged the military to invent new strategies, such as deploying ‘force multipliers,’ including specialised security tips hotlines, customised intelligence operations, perception management, and aerial rapid response  in the war against terrorist attacks, if the April deadline set by the Chief of Defence Staff  must be met.
Ekhomu, who spoke in Lagos, described the recent terrorist attacks in a Catholic Church in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State, and four other local government areas of Borno State, as brazen and deadly.

According to him, the terrorists have shown adaptive capacity by choosing to carry out stealth attacks in communities, villages and towns in these areas, while avoiding military patrols that tended to concentrate on the highways.
