At least 10 riders fell off their horses during Sallah durbar at Dutse emir’s palace on Friday.

Dutse is the capital of Jigawa state.

According to NAN, the incident happened during the mini durbar traditionally organised every year.

The governor receives cheers and greetings from members of the emirate council from top of the emir’s palace during the celebration.

The riders fell while racing to greet Muhammad Badaru, governor of the state, after observing the Eid-el-Fitr prayer at the central prayer ground at about 8:30am.

However, none of them sustained injury.

At the emir’s palace, district heads take turns to greet the governor as they raced on their decorated horses, while the emir came last and exchanged greetings with his council members.
