The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) issued an advisory ahead of Eid-el-Kabir amidst concern over a high risk of spread of COVID-19.
The advisory called for physical distancing, limited travel and use of face masks.
- Nigerians mark bleak Sallah amidst biting economy, insecurity
- Leaders preach tolerance, unity at Sallah
