Islamic scholars and memorisers of the  Qur’an gathered at the commission’s headquarters for the special session.
Chairman of the commission, Alhaji Bashir Tijjani Usman, while declaring open the event, said the prayer session was aimed at seeking divine intervention on the security problems bedevilling the state and nation.
In his remarks, Director General of the commission, Alhaji Sani Abdullahi Tofa, said the rampant cases of child rape, kidnapping, armed robbery and the Boko Haram insurgency, were sources of great concern to all.
“In the past, cases of rape, kidnapping and robbery were alien to us here in Kano, but now it has become the order of the day. In addition to this, is the Boko Haram insurgency.’’
He called on people of the state not to relent in their prayers, saying: “Every right thinking person is convinced that what is happening now, especially in the North-east, is a conspiracy against a section of Nigerians. It is because they think we are weak that they are using the powers within their reach to destroy us. We believe they will not succeed because even if we are weak, we have a God that is strong and it is because of this belief that we are gathered here today to call on Him to save us.’’
