Ansar-Ud-Deen donates relief materials to prison inmates, IDP camp in Kaduna


Kajuru is a Local Government in Kaduna State

The Muslim community in Kaduna State, under the umbrella of Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, yesterday donated relief materials to prison inmates and victims of the recent attacks in Kajuru and neighbouring communities after a visit to Kaduna Convict Prison and the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp.

The visits were led by the chairman, Alhaji Liadi Olapade, as part of programmes to mark Kaduna branch’s 78th anniversary. The items donated include used clothing materials, foodstuff, assorted medicine and toiletries.

According to Olapade, the visit was aimed “at alleviating the conditions of the inmates and IDPs as part of their Da’awa. “The essence of our visit is to appreciate what God did for us on the outside world ahead of the Ramadan fasting because any form of confinement takes lots of sacrifice and endurance. That you are here does not mean Allah has forgotten you. We pray Allah to set all of us free and change us for the better.”

Addressing the inmates at the mosque inside the prison, a cleric from the society, Malam Mohammed Inuwa Sabo, urged them to see their present condition as Allah’s doing, part of their destiny and a chance to review and change their behaviour and attitude for the better.

Also speaking, chairman of Adara Hall IDP camp, Sabo Tasha, Mr. Musa Magaji, lauded the gesture and urged other religious bodies to extend their widow’s mite to the camp.

“We want peace in Kajuru and in Kaduna state. We have 2,836 IDPs here. We need building materials to rebuild their houses and return them home,” Magaji said.
