Nigeria may stop the use of hijab any time soon.
President Muhammadu Buhari gave this indication during Wednesday’s presidential media chat.
Hijab is a veil that covers the head and chest and worn by some Muslim woman beyond the age of puberty in the presence of adult males outside of their immediate family.
Buhari, who expressed anger at the renewed spate of bombings, said he was considering banning the hijab to check attacks.
“I was in Chad and the ban is one of the measures they have adopted.
“We will have to take that option here in Nigeria if these senseless bombings go on,” the president told his interviewers.
