JUST IN: Sokoto community observes Eid, defies Sultan


Some Muslims  in Sokoto state observed Eid prayers on Sunday in defiance of the directive of Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, Sultan of Sokoto, who declared Monday as Eid-ul-Fitr.

On Saturday, the Sultan, who is the head of all Muslims in Nigeria, announced that the new moon of Shawwal, 1443AH, had not been sighted.

The Muslims, majority of whom are followers of Sheikh Musa Lukwa, observed the Eid around 8am on Sunday.

Speaking to Daily Trust, Sheikh Lukwa said they had received credible report on the sighting of the new moon in some parts of Nigeria and beyond.
