Due to current security challenges in the North East Geo political zones of the Country , the five first class Emirs of Jigawa state have been barred from traditional Sallah Durbar [ Horse ride ] known as Hawan Sallah by the state government because of the fear of unknown.
This paper findings gathered that the Emirs, of Hadejia, Kaaure, Gumel Ringim and Dutse had only attended Eidel Kabir prayers with subordinates and hundreds of Muslims faithfuls in their domain.
But our correspondent who went Kazuare reports that Emir of Kazaure Alhaji NAJIB Husaini Adamu who went Eid pray mosque by in A car came back home on horse where then followed normal routes and stay for little while at his palace where he receives homage from traditional title holders and districts heads and then entered his palace .
The Emir then declared to make any Sallah speech and immediately left for Daura where he paid Sallah homage on president Muahmmadu Buhari .
Reports from Hadeji , Gumel Ringim and Dutse , indicated that the story was the same because their Emirs did perform Durbar ,a situation which forced their followers to go home disappointed.
It was gathered reliably that since two weeks ago the Emirs where informed officially through the state special service directory , under the office of the secretary to the government that the usual durbar has been cancelled throughout the state for security reasons.
When contacted, the state Attorney general and Commissioner for Justice Barrister Sani Hussaini Garun Gabas said , he will not comment on that , because according to him, it was a security issue.
