Most of our readers sent us pictures of how they spent their Sallah. And here are the best ten pictures we got from them.

From Bauchi, Khalil Abubakar sent pictures of Eid prayers which held in mosques because of heavy downpour. The Emir and the Governor performed prayers at the mosque in Gwallaga. There was also a traditional Durbar. Another Durbar took place on Thursday. In one of the pictures, there is a kid holding a life snake and another on a horse.

In the Zaria Sallah Durbar, there was the Emir of Zazzau procession and also a parade by various horse riders. The Sallah Durbar in Lere town also had the Sarkin Lere, Abubakar II, in procession.

Also in Bauchi, a non-governmental group, Save Bauchi State Organisation, donated a cow as Sallah gift to inmates at the Bauchi Prisons.
