Let’s Intensify Prayers” – Remi Tinubu Tells Nigerians As Security Situation Worsens

The First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has implored the citizens to intensify prayers against insecurity in the nation.

She said that prayers can help bring the nation out of the kidnapping menace that Nigeria is currently battling.

The First Lady stated this on Monday in a statement posted on her official X (formerly Twitter) account, following the return of the five abducted sisters of the Al-Kadriyar family.

She said, “I rejoice with the Al-Kadriyar family, friends, and Nigerians in general for the safe return of the Al-Kadriyar sisters.

Prayer works and I want to thank all Nigerians, especially mothers for praying for the safe return of the Al-kadriyar sisters. Let us however not relent in our prayers.

“Let us intensify our prayers as it is prayers that would bring us out of this conundrum we find ourselves as a nation.

“I commend our security agencies for their efforts and urge them not to relent in combating insecurity in our Nation. God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Five of the six sisters of the Al-Kadriyar family were kidnapped alongside 19 others by bandits in the Bwari area of Abuja recently and regained their freedom on Saturday, January 20.

Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar, the eldest of the six sisters, and three others were killed by gunmen, and their corpses were dumped in an isolated area.

Nabeeha and her sisters were abducted alongside their father, Alhaji Mansoor Al-Kadriyar. Nabeeha had since been laid to rest according to Islamic rites.

Nabeeha was a 400-level student of biological science at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

Other siblings include Najeebah Al-Kadriyar (500 level, quantity surveying); Nadheerah Al-Kadriyar (300 level, zoology), both students of ABU; and Adeebah and Aneesah.
