Borno Muslim, Christian faithfuls prays for rainfall, as crops dries up

Following prolonged lack of rainfall, millions of Muslim and Christian faithfuls embarked on prayers seeking God's favour as many crops and farmlands have dried up in parts of Northern and Central Borno senatorial districts.

Several Churches on Sunday dedicated prayer sessions for rainfall during service in Maiduguri and its environs.

Recall that some communities have not experience rainfall for the past one month, leading to severe devastation on crops and farmlands.

In Dikwa local government area of Borno Central, thousands of Muslim worshipers converged Sunday 16th July 2023 onto the outskirt of the town, where they performed two Rak’at Prayers for Rain as earlier enjoined by His Royal Highness, the Shehu of Dikwa, Alhaji Ibrahim Ibn Umar Ibrahim El-kanemi.

The prayers was to seek for Divine intervention as a result of shortage of Rain in this year’s Raining season.
