FEED THE POOR

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)

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt General Ibrahim Atahiru has confirmed defeat on his troops’ locations in Mainok and other formations by dreaded members of the Boko Haram sect.

He said, in war, there is no way troops would always claim victory over their enemies, as sometimes the opposite is the direction.

General Atahiru stated this in an interview with newsmen on Thursday at 7 Div, Maimalari Cantonment/ Operation Lafiya Dole in Maiduguri while on Operational Visit, and to also see wounded soldiers.

Recalled that a few days ago, suspected members of terrorists dislodged military Base in Kamuya village in Biu Local Government Area and recently Mainok in Kaga Local Government Area where dozens of soldiers were killed with the destruction of arms and ammunitions last Sunday.
