Insecurity: Borno Governor Employs 30 Saudi – Based Clerics for Prayer

The Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum has signed an agreement with 30 Saudi-based clerics to pray for peace and stability in the state.

The spokesperson to the governor, Isa Gusau who made this known in a statement said, “An old man amongst them is said to have remained a Ka’aba devotee in the last 40 years.

“The Ka’aba is Islam’s holiest area located inside the grand Al-Haram mosque in Makkah.

“The aim is to combine different approaches that include sustained support for the Nigerian Armed Forces, aggressive mass recruitment and equipping of more counter-insurgency volunteers into the Civilian JTF, hunters and vigilantes as well as socio-economic approach in enhancing access to education, job opportunities and providing other means of livelihood through social protection initiatives.”

This is coming few days after the Nigerian Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Butatai, declared that a spiritual solution was required to end Boko Haram insurgency in the country.
