Zamfara killings: Gov. Yari declares three-day fasting to tackle bandits

The Zamfara State government has called on the people of the state to embark
on three-day fasting and intensive prayers to seek God’s intervention against the activities of bandits, kidnappers and other criminals.

The state’s Commissioner of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Alhaji Bello Dankande, made the call at a news conference on Tuesday in Gusau.

He said, “I am sure you all know the efforts the state government and the Federal Government are making to tackle the activities of criminal elements in the state.

“We believe that the fasting and prayers will facilitate Allah’s intervention for both the safety and success of our security men and bring the ugly situation to an end.

“These three days of fasting is voluntary to everybody because we are all either directly or indirectly affected by the situation.

“We are also soliciting for the intensive reading of the complete Holy Qur’an by Islamic scholars and their students to invoke Allah’s help,” NAN quoted him as saying.
