The Borno State COVID-19 Committee and Islamic Clerics, on Wednesday, agreed to hold the Eid-el-Fitr prayers.
Alhaji Umar Kadafur, the state Deputy Governor in a statement said that the decision was taken after a stakeholders meeting involving the COVID-19 committee and Islamic clerics.
Kadafur said that Muslims in the state could observe the Eid-el-Fitr prayers at the designated Eid grounds between the hours of 8a.m. and 10a.m. to mark the end of Ramadan.
The committee chairman urged people with chronic medical conditions and those above 60 years of age not to participate in the congregational prayer sessions.
