The Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwan Sulaiman, has cancelled the annual durbar by royal horsemen, popularly known as “hawan daushe”, held a day after Eid-el-Fitr (Sallah) in Bauchi.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that a horse parade is a tourism event organised by Emirs in the North, which attracts thousands of people during the Sallah festivities.

Sulaiman said at the stakeholders’ meeting with the state government on Wednesday in Bauchi that the cancellation of the event was necessitated by the global Coronavirus pandemic.

“We will do everything possible to see that we stop the spread of the virus in our society.

“Therefore, the annual “ daushe” horse parade is cancelled to ensure adherence to social distancing and discourage all forms of social gathering in the state,” he said.
