Mr Iliyasu-Bashar, Chairman, Kebbi State Council of Emirs, expressed the shock at a weekly prayer session held at Abdullahi Fodio Palace, Birnin Kebbi.

The emirate organised the prayer sessions to seek divine intervention in all matters concerning peace, unity, well-being, growth and development of Nigeria.

The emir described the involvement of traditional title holders in banditry as worrisome and needed to be tackled head-on.

He appealed to Islamic leaders and Muslim faithfuls to intensify prayers for lasting peace and unity in the country, especially during the Ramadan period.
