Madagli Blast: Gov Bindow to Ban Hijabs in Adamawa State

Governor Muhammadu Bindow is considering placing a ban on the use of hijabs in Adamawa state after two female suicide bombers attacked Madagli market, killing scores.

The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mallam Ahmad Sajoh, said it's part of the measures to curb suicide bomb attacks in the state during the yuletide season.

He said Governor Muhammadu Bindow would meet with members of Adamawa Muslim Council and other stakeholders to discuss the possibility of taking that temporary measure, adding that those that carried out the Madagali suicide attack were in hijab.

The state government would also assist members of vigilance groups in the areas in view of their contribution to security agencies, he added.
