Daura which happens to be the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari, has earlier experienced insurgent attacks which lend to the suspension of the Ramadan festival.
According to reports, the activities that would be affected included public display by horse riders (Durbar) at the palace of the Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmumin Usman; and that of the Emir of Daura, Faruk Umar.
This was disclosed in a letter dated 13th July, 2021.
According to the letter, “The Emirate council has suspended activities concerning Durbar during the Sallah, but his Eminence has implored residents to seize the Sallah period in offering prayers for the state and for Nigeria.”
The letter reportedly disclosed that special prayers should be offered for sustainable peace in the state immediately after the Eid prayers on Sallah day.
Meanwhile, the Emirate council spokesman, Usman Ibrahim, disclosed that, “The circular is already in the public domain.”
