On Monday this week, The Nigerian Army held a spiritual warfare seminar themed Countering insurgency and violent extremism in Nigeria through spiritual warfare.

The seminar reportedly involved conversations on how religious organisations can play a role in preventing ideologies of terrorism in the society.

According to a report by The Punch, The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai represented by Chief of Administration, Maj. Gen. Sani Yusuf urged religious leaders and clerics to “fashion out ways of stepping up [their] roles, remembering that the fight against terrorism is a collective responsibility.”
