The Police Officers Wives Association (POWA) in Kaduna have engaged in a two-day prayer and fasting session to seek divine intervention over banditry and terrorism attacks.

The wives took the insecurity issues to God, to ask Him to protect their husbands from the wrath of bandits.

Police spokesman Mohammed Jalige made this known in a statement on Friday, August 5, in Kaduna.

According to him, the POWA Kaduna command chapter on Thursday ended the two-day prayer and fasting 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.

“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.

“They also beseeched God almighty to keep protecting their spouses and give them victory over the enemies of Nigeria in whatever guise in the course of their duties,” the police statement said.
