Chibok Schoolgirls: CAN holds 3 days fasting, prayer

The missing Chibok schoolgirls held captive by Boko Haram

The cleric stressed the need for special prayers for God’s intervention for the release of the girls.

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Borno, on Friday commenced a three-day fasting and prayer session for the release of the over 250 abducted Chibok schoolgirls and victims of Boko Haram insurgency in the State.

The State Chairman of the association, Titus Pona, announced this in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

He said the fasting and prayer became necessary in view of the high trend of insurgent attacks in rural areas in the state.

The cleric stressed the need for special prayers for God’s intervention for the release of the girls.

“I urge you to intensify prayer and fasting so that God will give us the lasting solution to the killings and kidnapping across the north east.

“I urge you to remain resolute in prayer for lasting solution to the security challenge in the country’’, said Mr. Pona.

He advised that religion should not be used to commit devilish acts or promote selfish interest.
Thousands of Borno residents have been killed in the Boko Haram insurgency.
