The Zazzau Emirate Council in Kaduna State, on Saturday announced the cancellation of Eid-El-Fitr durbar and all other festivities in honour of victims of the dual bomb blast that rocked Kaduna metropolis.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that on Tuesday, two separate bomb blasts occurred in Kaduna metropolis, claiming many lives.

Addressing Journalists in Zaria on behalf of the Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, the Wazirin Zazzau, Alhaji Ibrahim Aminu, said the decision became necessary in view of the security challenges confronting the state and the nation.

“In view of the sad happenings in kaduna and other parts of the country, Zazzau Emirate Council has canceled this year’s Sallah festivities.

“The decision is a mark of respect for the people that lost their lives during the twin bomb explosions that occurred on July 23rd, in Kaduna metropolis.

“The emirate commiserates with the families and relatives of those that lost their lives and wishes those that sustained injuries, quick recovery,” he prayed.

While sympathising with former Head of State Gen Muhammadu Buhari and a prominent Islamic preacher, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, who were targeted during the attacks but escaped unhurt, the emir prayed to God to prevent a repeat of the incident.

“I urge both Muslims and Christians to continue to pray for peace, security and progress in the state and the nation at large,” he advised. [NAN]
