Adamawa State Government has on Friday disclosed that it had allocated N200 million to engage prayer warriors to seek divine intervention toward ending the state’s lingering Boko Haram challenges.
The Chief of Staff to the Adamawa governor, Abdurahman Jimeta, said this in a media chat aired on the Adamawa State Television, which was monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria in Yola.
According to Mr. Jimeta, the cash was sourced from the state and local governments’ joint account.
“We have earmarked N200 million for prayers to seek for Allah’s intervention in tackling the Boko Haram menace and other insecurity challenges threatening the stability of the state,” Mr. Jimeta said.
He said that part of that money, which would be spent as security votes, would go into assisting local vigilance teams and security operatives.
