3 Boko Haram dressed up like girls disguised as women killed by JTF in Maiduguri
[Osun Defender] Operatives of the Joint Task Force (JTF) yesterday bumped off three suspected Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...

Drop the gat, Rocky, or you're a dead 'un!
while attempting to attack the Ibrahim Taiwo Police Station along Baga road.
"Chief! Chief! A coupla dozen women are trying to attack the cop shoppe!"
"Are you sure they're women?"
"I'm sure they're armed!"
"Okay! I'll send a flying squad! Should it be a girl flying squad or a boy flying squad?"
"Send one of each! That's live ammunition!"

Witnesses said over 20 men, clad in Hijab (flowing cloth and veil, popular among Moslem women) and Abaya (a long rob also popular among women in Borno) were arrested around the Police station.
"If you ladies would be so kind as to drop that weaponry and put yer hands on yer head, we can serve tea!"
"Do we get scones, too?"

A security source said the incident happened around 2pm, adding that all the suspects had AK47 Rifles and Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) concealed in beneath their cloth.
"See, I got this idea, Mahmoud! We make all the wimmin wear sacks..."
"This is Nigeria, Ahmed. Ain't they gonna roast? It's 98.6 degrees today!"
"They're just a buncha wimmin. What do you care? Anyway, when they're all doin' that, we dress up like girls and surprise the infidels!"
"Ooh! Ooh! Good idea! Can I have one of those push-up bras?"

The source said the attempted attack was repelled because a combined team of soldiers, coppers and SSS were keeping watch at the station which is directly facing the Baga Market.
"It's quiet, chief!"
"Too quiet! Keep a close eye out! And stop lookin' at them wimmin! This ain't no dating service!"

Besides, there was serious fight at Jajeri area of Maiduguri yesterday when suspected Boko Haram members detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in order to scare away dozens of youth of the vigilante groups, popularly known as 'Civilian JTF' who stormed the area in order to rid it of vermin.
"Oh, noze! An IED!"
"Thhhppp! Missed us, didn't you?"

Witnesses said the sound of the blast which rattled the people in nearby settlements as well as the sporadic gunshots by the bully boyz did not deter the surging youth from advancing into the area seen as "safe abode" for suspected Boko Haram members in the last four years.
"Onward, Nigerian youth guyz!
Marching as to war!

Sabiu Buba, a technician along Baga road said trouble started around 1.15pm when the youth, carrying daggers, sticks and ropes mobilized themselves and moved into the area.
[Brzzt! Crackle!]
"Advancing into sector 458!"
"Howcome you say 'Brzzt! Crackle!' when you holler?"
"Someday we'll have radios!"
"Hey! Do that thing where you sound like you're on single sidedband, like the rebels in Star Wars!"

"while many traders at the Baga market and shop owners on the highway were scampering for safety, the volunteer youths were not deterred, they only took cover for a while and thereafter stormed the red spot," Buba said.

#2  Abdul's drag outfit did not include a jock strap. The obvious mistake gave way the entire platoon.
