Wives of policemen fast, pray to God not to allow bandits kill their husbands

The Police Officers Wives Association (POWA) in Kaduna has sought divine intervention in ending bandit and Boko Haram attacks by engaging in a two-day prayer and fasting session.

Police spokesman Mohammed Jalige disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Kaduna.

Mr Jalige said the POWA Kaduna command chapter had on Thursday ended the two-day prayer and fasting with an interfaith session.

According to him, the prayer and fasting session was led by the POWA chairwoman and wife of the police commissioner, Salimat Ayoku.

“The prayers and fasting sessions were devoted to peace in Nigeria due to the recent unmitigated security challenges,” said the statement.

According to the police statement, because Nigeria’s worsening insecurity is taking its toll on police officers, the cops’ wives decided to hold the prayer sessions.

“The president of POWA, the wife of the inspector general of police, Hajiya Hajara Usman, had to instruct POWA members to embark on a two-day fasting and prayers to seek divine intervention,” added the police.
