Ndume urges prayers against Boko Haram insurgency


Maiduguri- Sen. Muhammad Ndume representing Southern Borno, has urged Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the state to pray for divine intervention to end the Boko Haram insurgency.

Ndume made the call on Thursday while addressing displaced Christians taking refuge at the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Centre, Maiduguri.

He said that prayers were very significant in ending the sect members’ activities ravaging the North-East.

He said his visit to the camp was to rub minds with the IDPs to know their grievances.

The lawmaker donated N700,000 for the construction of boreholes in the IDPs’ camp in order to access portable water.

Bishop Williams Naga, who spoke on behalf of the IDPs, commended Ndume for the gesture, saying that it would go a long way in cushioning the hardships at the centre.

Naga said that the camp also lacked toilet facilities and appealed to the state government to relocate them to Wulari Primary School.

In a related development, the Caretaker Chairman of Ngala Local Government Area, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulkarim, has donated metal detectors to members of the Civilian JTF operating in IDPs camps in the state.

Abdulkarim presented the security gadgets at a stakeholders’ meeting on Thursday in Maiduguri.
He said the groups were given the device to enable them conduct proper search and detection of suspected suicide bombers.

He said the detectors would be used in IDPs camps in the area. (NAN)
