The National Inter-Faith Religious Organizations for Peace (NIFROP) has urged Nigerians to intensify prayers for the military leadership and troops combating insurgency and all forms of insecurity across states of the country.
The group in a statement on Tuesday, July 14, said the prayers by citizens would help the Nigerian military and other security agencies to defeat remnants of terrorists, bandits and all other criminal elements and their sponsors in the country.
Signed by the national coordinator of NIFROP, Bishop Sunday Garuba, the statement said Nigerians must unite in prayer at this critical period.
Bishop Garuba said the recently launched Operation Sahel Sanity by the Nigerian army is another testament of the current administration's commitment to securing the lives and properties of citizens.
"We are calling on all Nigerians to embark on a special fasting programme for the Muhammadu Buhari administration and our troops involved in military operations across the country," Bishop Garuba said.
