About 10 riders fell off their horses during Sallah Durbar at Dutse Emir’s Palace on Friday, News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The incident happened during the mini durbar traditionally organised every year where the governor receives cheers and greetings from members of the emirate council from top of the Emir’s palace.
The riders fell while racing to greet Gov. Muhammad Badaru of the state, after observing the Eid-el-Fitr prayer at the central prayer ground at about 8.30am.
However, none of the riders sustained any injury.
At the emir’s palace, district heads took turns to greet the governor as they raced on their decorated horses. The Emir came last and exchanged greetings with his council members.
