The Katsina Emirate Council has cancelled Sallah Durbar, popularly called ‘Hawan-Sallah’.

The Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir, gave the directive in a statement by the council’s Secretary, Alhaji Bello Mamman-Ifo, on Tuesday in Katsina.
 
“In view of kidnappings and banditry taking place around the emirate, and based on advises received from the state government, security agents, and health personnel, the emirate will not conduct ‘Hawan-Sallah’ and other festivities during the Eid-el-Fitr celebration,” he said.
 
 
The Emir, however, noted that Eid prayer would be conducted and a special prayer for peaceful coexistence in the state and the country, in general, would also be offered.
 
Similarly, the Daura Emirate Council also cancelled Sallah Durbar due to insecurity challenges in some parts of the state.
