The lead trainer, Miss Ruth Bala, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the women were also trained to partake in decision making processes in their communities.

She said that programme targeted Christian and Muslim women living in areas experiencing crisis, to encourage dialogue and promote peaceful coexistence in their communities.

Bala said that 12 communities from the state were selected for the training with five Christian and Muslim women selected from each of the communities.
