No fewer than 10 riders fell off their horses during Sallah Durbar at Dutse Emirís 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 Emirís 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 8.30 a.m. However, none of the riders sustained injuries.
