Yobe Goes Spiritual On Boko Haram Destroying Electricity Towers

Yobe State government has launched a spiritual war against the Boko Haram insurgents destroying electricity towers which has cut Borno and Yobe states from the national grid for months now.

The towers are part of the Jos - Gombe grid serving Borno and Yobe states with electricity.

After repairing the 330 KVA towers crumbled last February by the insurgents near Kasaisa village, Gujba LGA, cutting the two sister states from electricity supply from the national grid, Governor Mai Mala Buni, on Wednesday, May 15 led a crowd of Muslim clerics in the recitation of the Holy Quran and prayers for God to punish the insurgents crumbling the towers.

The decision followed Governor Buni's warning that after repairing the towers, he would lead the recitation of the Holy Quran and prayers against the criminals hellbent on denying the two states electricity from the national grid.

It could be recalled that the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC) recently disclosed that the criminals, for the first time, crumbled the towers in December, 2023, and for the second time, in February, 2024, both of which were repaired by Yobe State government.

Leading Muslim clerics and students of the Holy Quran participated at Wednesday's recitation and prayers session, where cows were sacrificed for Allah to expose and punish the insurgents crumbling the electricity towers.

The prayer session was for Allah to expose and punish the criminals, their sponsors, their supporters, those who help them with the tools used in the destruction of the towers, their transporters to the scene of the crime, whoever knows but refuses to expose them; buyers of the vandalized tower parts, and transformers thieves.
