BREAKING: Cameroon Bans Wearing Of Burqa Due To Female-Bombers

Following two attacks in Cameroon’s northern town of Fotokol where at least 13 people were killed, the Cameroonian government has banned the wearing of burqa by female Muslims in the country.
Burqa is a long loose garment covering the whole body from head to feet, worn in public by women in many Islamic countries.
Reuters says Governor Midjiyawa Bakari, the regional governor where the attacks happened said “I took this measure because of the security situation prevailing in the region.”
Similar suicide bombings by females have been occurring almost every day in northeastern Nigeria, but very uncommon in neighbouring countries until the recent attacks in Cameroon.
Terror analysts are of the opinion that Boko Haram’s renewed attacks on Chad and Cameroon are signs of revenge on both countries for being allies to a regional military force aimed at bring end to insurgency in their international borders with Nigeria.
The merciless insurgents have been applying guerrilla tactics to carry out carnage against innocent folks living in the region they operate in, after Nigeria-led forces had sent them running helter-skelter, especially at the twilight of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure.
