Photos: Emir Sanusi leads Sallah Durbar in Kano

Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Sunday led the traditional Sallah durbar, a celebration that followed the Eid prayer and sermon at Kofar Mata Jumu’at mosque.

Due to flooding at the usual Eid ground, the Emir rode horseback through the streets of Wambai, Zage, Yan Damadan, and Shahuci, returning to the palace in a grand procession.

In a departure from past traditions, the Emir was the sole horseback rider, while district heads walked or rode in vehicles.

The event was attended by Governor Abba Yusuf and other cabinet members, with a heavy security presence from the Army, police, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, and other agencies.
