She said that with the recent trend of female suicide bombings in the country, the theft of these regalia heightens concerns about the possibility of terrorist elements using same to perpetrate acts of terror.

Consequently, she added that the Department of State Service wishes to draw the attention of the public to this development and to call on all citizens to be more circumspect and exercise greater vigilance with users of such peculiar attires.
"We therefore enjoin all to continue to cooperate with law enforcement agencies through the provision of
