The police in Niger State have banned horse racing in Minna, the state capital, during the Eid el-Fitr celebration.

The Commissioner of Police, Shawulu Ebenezer Danmamman, who disclosed this in a Sallah message signed by the command’s spokesman, Wasiu Abiodun, said the ban was to prevent the usual horse racing from being hijacked by hoodlums who were fond of attacking people during such festivities.

Abiodun said about 2,500 personnel, with operational assets, had been deployed to provide security coverage at all Eid grounds in the 25 local government areas of the state, as well as recreation centres, amusement parks and other public places.

He said all relevant police commanders had been directed to deploy operational assets to dominate public places, ensure visibility policing with constant supervision, and embark on confidence-building patrols to all the nooks and crannies of the state for a peaceful celebration.

Similarly, Niger State Governor, Mohammed Umaru Bago, called on Muslims to use the period of the Eid el-Fitr to pray for peace and security in the state and Nigeria.

The governor, in a Sallah message by his Chief Press Secretary, Bologi Ibrahim, underscored the need for Muslims to remain steadfast in the worship of Allah and to follow the teachings of the Quran and the Hadith.

Governor Bago urged Muslims to continue to uphold piety, patience, tolerance, perseverance, humility and self-restraint, which were observed vigorously during the holy month beyond the period for a better society.
