Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Suspected armed Boko Haram sect on Saturday evening invaded Rumirgo community of Askira Uba Local Government Area of Borno State and killed security personnel, two other civilians.

The insurgents according to Sources stormed the settlement at about 7pm to 10pm on Saturday, also carted away with a tanker loaded with Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) a.k.a petrol.
