Chad, Cameroon To Discuss Boko Haram Menace

Chadian President Idriss Deby and his Cameroonian counterpart Paul Biya are to discuss the regional menace posed by the extremist Nigerian Islamist sect Boko Haram at a meeting in Yaounde.

The Chadian leader was expected in the Cameroonian capital on Thursday.

According to reliable sources, the Christmas day attacks in Nigeria by Boko Haram which resulted in the death of about 40 people were behind the hurried meeting between the two leaders.

President Deby is expected to later fly to Niger and the Central African Republic on a mission to fine-tune a regional plan on how to combat the radical Islamist sect.

The Chadian leader had on December 19 met with Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan to discuss the increase in the number of attacks by Boko Haram in areas bordering Chad.

Koranic schools

The renewed focus on Boko Haram comes as ten Koranic schools in Logone, Chari, Mayo Sava and Diamare divisions of Cameroon’s Far North Region were reported to have been closed down by administrative authorities.

Several Koranic teachers alleged “daily” official harassment since the December 25 bombings in Nigeria.

“They have been treating all of us as if we were terrorists”, a preacher at one mosque who requested anonymity complained.

    salam kak aliya.ini saya sgt sujetu. ramai yg menghalalkan yg haram, atas alasan yang dibuat utk memudahkan diri sendiri. sampai skrg saya tertanya, apa rasional meletakkan halal pada kotak pewarna rambut, walhal itu mengelirukan. ramai yg berkata, sbb tertulis halal, maka perbuatan itu tidak salah.masa saya hadir usrah di uia dulu, ustaz terangkan, zaman Rasulullah mereka mewarna rambut dan janggut untuk menakutkan musuh kala berperang, bkn mcm perempuan skrg, rambut kdg2 dah serupa warna bulu monyet, masih bangga ditayang2 pada semua yang bukan mahram.bila ditanya, bila ditegur, jawapannya JAKIM dah katakan halal. tunggu saja pewarna kuku pun dibubuh halal, mesti ramai berlumba2 mewarnakan kuku.
