Kaduna — The Zazzau Emirate yesterday said the annual Eid-el-Adha Durbars usually staged during Sallah festivities would not take place this year.
The emir's protocol officer, Alhaji Abubakar Ladan made this known to our correspondent saying Sallah Durbar would not take place because of same reasons that stopped the Durbar during the Eid-el-Fitr.
During the Eid-el-Fitr, the emirate said it cancelled the Durbar to allow time for residents of the Zazzau emirate to pray for the return of peace to the country.
Investigation by Daily Trust yesterday however revealed that the emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, has been out of the country for about 20 days.
Sources closed to the palace said the emir was out of the country on "a medical trip."
