Activities to mark the 40th day prayers since the martyrdom of Sheikh Qaseem Umar have been announced.

There will be general prayers in all towns and villages across the country on Saturday March 17th 2018.

That will be followed by a grand procession on Monday 19th March, in Abuja, where the Sheikh was shot while participating in a peaceful Free Zakzaky procession, which led to his martyrdom.

The procession is expected to follow the Free Zakzaky Sit Out at the Unity Fountain, where again there will be prayers offered for the repose of his gentle soul.
