The pan Igbo cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Nd’Igbo, Tuesday organised a prayer session for peace to return to Borno state at the Igbo center, Wulari, Maiduguri.
Igbo within Maiduguri locked up their shops and businesses for the special prayers. The lock up was scheduled to last until 12pm.
President of the Borno state chapter of the organisation, Elder Mazi Uche Chris, said they organised the prayer session because they “want God to intervene in the security situation in the state and the country as a whole.”
In the same vein, Rev Maxwell Njoku, prayed for the leadership of Borno state under Governor Babagana Umara Zulum and President Muhammadu Buhari and urged all patriotic citizens of the state to give maximum cooperation and support to the current administration.
