Masari, residents seek divine intervention against banditry

THE Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, and some residents of the state on Thursday began a three-day special prayers for divine intervention against banditry and other security challenges as well as against COVID-19.

The prayer session commenced at about 10am and was observed for three hours at Bani Coomassie Jumu’at Mosque in Katsina, the state capital.

Over 300 adherents made up largely of ulamas (Islamic scholars) attended the Thursday prayer session.

Masari, while addressing the ulamas, who were reciting the Holy Qur’an, described the exercise as a step towards making God to accept prayers for peace to prevail in the state and in Nigeria.

The Chief Imam of the mosque, Alhaji Samu Bakori, said the prayers were organised for divine intervention to overcome the problems bedevilling the state and the country at large.
