Sultan calls for special prayers
THE Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Saad Abubakar, has urged Muslims to fervently pray for peace to reign in Nigeria.
The Sultan advised Muslims nationwide to recite the Al-Qunut special supplication in all mosques across the country during the five obligatory daily prayers.
He said the prayers were necessary to ward off further “human or natural catastrophe”.
Sultan Abubakar condemned the killing of students in Buni Yadi, Yobe State, saying it was a senseless act perpetrated by criminals.
“The barbaric and heinous attack is utterly condemnable in its totality,” the Sultan said.
He recalled similar attacks in the past and called on the Federal Government to wake up to its responsibility of protecting lives and property of Nigerians, especially in the Northeast.
