Adamawa to review use of hijab in the state
« on: December 12, 2016, 03:26:41 PM »


Adamawa Government is considering a temporary review of the use of hijab —the head covering worn by Moslems in public places—in areas prone to insecurity as part of measures to contain suicide bombers.

Commissioner for Information Mallam Ahmad Sajoh, told reporters in Yola yesterday that the decision was taken at an emergency security meeting over Friday’s twin explosions in Madagali market that led to the death of scores.Sajoh 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 wore hijab.

Sajoh said the meeting also underscored the need for people to be more vigilant during this festive period and in places like markets, motor parks, churches and mosques.

“We also resolved at the meeting, based on security recommendations, to assist members of vigilance groups in the areas in view of their contribution to security agencies”, he added.

The commissioner said victims of the attack were responding to treatment in Michika General Hospital that the governor had directed all health personnel in neigbouring Hong and Mubi Local Governments to move to the affected area.

“The state emergency management agency has also been directed to give urgent support to victims and relations of victims.”
