However, Muslim Faithful in Kano, on Sunday observed prayers to mark the Eid-el-Fitr celebration in a low key mood, because of the coronavirus (COVID-19), pandemic.

The Eid-el-Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan fast, an important religious obligation that Muslims worldwide observe annually.
