Following the recent spate of Boko Haram attacks, coupled with the two suicide blasts in the capital, N’Djamena, which killed 37 people, the Chadian government would commence rounding up of foreigners in the country.
The Chadian Prime Minister, Kalzeube Deubet, who disclosed this on Friday, said that those detained would be placed at centres in Baga Sola on the shores of Lake Chad.
The prime minister did not, however give details on whom the raids would target and where.
He said the North-Central African country wanted to get rid of terrorists “once and for all.’’
Furthermore, Deubet said Chadian government had earlier announced other security measures, such as bans on the burqa, an article of clothing that covers the entire body, and on public gatherings.
