There will be no traditional Sallah procession in the emirate of Daura this Eid-el-Fitr.

 This was the resolve of the Emir of Daura, Dr. Umar Faruk Umar, Monday, in a circular addressed to district heads.

The traditional ruler stated that special prayers would be held after the Eid prayer for lasting peace in the country.

Due to rising insecurity in the country, the Emir of Daura, Dr. Umar Faruk Umar, has banned the Sallah Durbar in the emirate for the forthcoming Eid-el-Fitr. The decision of the monarch was contained in a circular addressed to the district heads of the emirate, Daily Trust reports.

He also revealed that the Emir’s decision was further influenced due to the insecurity in the country, kidnappings, and other threats to national stability.

According to Sahihu, the focus will be on performing special prayers on the Sallah day as soon as the Eid prayers are performed.

It added that the emir had instructed the district heads to conduct the Eid prayers with the people in their domain and offer special prayers for lasting peace in the country immediately after the eid prayer.
