COVID-19: Kano cancels Sallah festivities

by Kunle Awosiyan

Ahead of this year’s Sallah festival, the Kano State government Wednesday canceled the usual  Eid-del-Kabir celebrations in the state as a way of containing the spread of COVID-19.

This position was made public by the state Commissioner for information, Muhammed Garba. He said that the congregational prayers will be strictly supervised by government officials to ensure compliance.

He added that all the five Emirs in the state have been instructed to go to the Eid Prayer Grounds in their respective domains in motor vehicles, instead of the usual walk.
