Matawalle made the call during a special prayer session organised by the Ulamau Consultative Committee (UCC) which was held all over the state.

The governor who attended the prayer at the Gusau Central Mosque, said it has become imperative for the citizens to complement the government and security operatives’ efforts in tackling the menace in the state.

”Prayer is the only powerful weapon that can solve any calamity on the people. We must seek for Allah’s forgiveness."
