Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumin Kabir, has lamented the abduction of his people.
NAN reports that he spoke at the weekend while addressing Islamic clerics in the State.
He said: “As Muslims, we should embark on aggressive prayers for Allah’s intervention to end this menace.
“The bandits have killed my people and kidnapped women and children.
“We have no option than to resort to prayers; Islam teaches that prayer is the only weapon against calamities.
“We all must pray. Our special prayers will surely assist the security agents in their operations against the bandits,” he stated.
