COVID-19 social distancing rule was not fully enforced during the Eid prayers in Kano on Sunday morning.
This happened in a state with the second-highest COVID-19 cases in the country.
Religious faithful were clustered behind what appeared to be a glass partition during Eid prayers.
Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor, and those around him sat apart, though not up to two meters as recommended by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
However, the people behind were packed together and clearly more than 100.
Photos of the Eid prayers were posted by Salihu Tanko Yakasai, media aide of the governor.
