Zazzau cancels Eid Durbar for blast victims
There will be no Eid-El-Fitr Durbar or any other festivities in Zaria and environs this week, the Zazzau Emirate Council announced yesterday.
This is to honour victims of last week’s dual bomb blasts in Kaduna.
The death toll in the blast has reached 110.
Former military Head of State and APC chieftain, General Muhammadu Buhari and popular Islamic preacher, Sheik Dahiru Bauchi both of whom were the targets of the blasts escaped unhurt.
Addressing reporters in Zaria on behalf of the Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, the Wazirin Zazzau, Alhaji Ibrahim Aminu, said the durbar cancellation was necessitated by the security challenges confronting the state and the nation.
He commiserated with the bereaved families and wished the injured quick recovery.
He also urged Muslims and Christians to continue to pray for peace, security and progress in the state and the nation at large.
