President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday offered a special prayer against another civil war in Nigeria.

President Buhari spoke at an event to welcome the World leader of the Tijjaniyya Islamic Religious Movement, Sheikh Muhammadul Mahy Niass, the Grand Khalifa of Sheikh Ibrahim Niass.

The President, who recalled that in the 30 months of the civil war, Nigerians on both sides lost numerous lives, prayed that “never again shall we experience such”.
