Blackout: Borno LG Seeks Divine Intervention

Konduga local government (LG) council of Borno State resorts to seeking divine intervention to combat electricity facility vandals in the area.

Suspected Boko Haram members are often accused of causing blackouts due to continued vandalization of electricity towers along the Damaturu-Maiduguri Road.

Abba Ali Abbari, the council chairman, led a session to offer sacrifices to tame the activities of vandals on Sunday, saying the decision followed the recent vandalism of towers on Friday along the road allegedly carried out by the suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

A Maiduguri-based Yerwa Express, posted a video clip earlier showing the local government information officer going round the town informing residents that a curse has been invoked on anyone perpetrating and aiding the vandalism.

Abbari has involved Islamic and other spiritual leaders to combat the scourge.

With an Imam holding the Qur’an, the council official told residents that a sacrifice had been made and a curse invoked, warning that anyone who engaged in the act would face spiritual destruction.

Recall that earlier Yobe State did a similar spiritual invocation against vandals that destroyed electricity towers linking Yobe and Borno States.
