Boko Haram: Shehu of Borno declares three-day fasting

Boko Haram

The Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn-Garbai, has directed residents of the state to embark on a three-day fasting "for divine intervention over the Boko Haram insurgency in the state."

The directive is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Maiduguri. The statement quoted the monarch as asking residents to start the fasting on Tuesday.

He said "I am appealing to all residents of the state to observe a three-day fasting to seek Allah's mercy toward ending the crisis facing us.

"I believe we should continue to seek for Allah's help toward restoring peace in the state."

He also directed that special prayers be held in Mosques and Churches to seek God's help and urged residents to remain prayerful even after the fasting.
