A suspected Boko Haram member who disguised as a woman to attack a market in Niger Republic has been arrested.
The spread of the deadly Boko Haram insurgents into other West African countries like Chad and Niger is becoming quite alarming. And the rate at which they carry out bombings is drawing a lot of talking points.
Imagine this man who disguised as a woman with explosives tied around his body shortly after a market in the Chadian capital, N'djamena, killed more than 15 people, also on a mission to detonate his bomb at another location.
The incidences of men disguising as women to carry out these attacks has led to the ban on the use of Hijab in that country, with many calling for the use of the full face veil to be banned in Nigeria as well.
