Hawan Sallah: How Eid El-fitr was celebrated in Daura Emirate (Pictures)
Just like many other traditional kingdoms in the majority Muslims/Hausa communities in Nigeria, Daura Emirate do observe traditional Hawan Sallah on a day like this – the Eid El-fitr day.
In the morning like that of every Eid day, the Emir of Daura went to the Eid ground and observed the Eid prayer in congregation. His district heads met him at the Eid ground.
After the prayer, he then rode his horse back to the popular Kangiwa Square accompanied with his districts heads wearing colourful traditional attire.
He then sat there while the districts heads with their entourage rode horses and greeted him in the most fashionable way.
Below are some pictures of the event:
