Kaduna State Celebrates Centenary with Colourful Durbar




Kaduna State on Saturday hosted a colourful durbar with more than 3,000 colourfully decorated horses and camels from Northern royalty participated  in  the grand durbar to mark the state centenary celebration.

The traditional rulers of Borno, Kano, Gombe, Bida, Zazzau, Bauchi, Hadeja and Keffi were among others that led a team of riders of between  250 and 500 well decorated horses,  to display their different cultures.

While riding the horses and camels, citizens danced to the rhythm of drums during the celebration. Trumpets blared and gun shots rent the air as warriors showcased how wars were won in the past.

Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasiru El-Rufai said the Shehu of Borno, Shehu Umar ibn Ai-Kanemi, lead the durbar.

Kaduna is a Borno city because the state’s first indigenous governor was Shettima Kashim Ibrahim who was also a title holder in Borno State,

“And we chose the present Shehu of Borno to lead today’s durbar because coincidentally, his grandfather led the first durbar in 1956 while his father led the FESTAC durbar in 1977, El-Rufai said.

El-rufai said the incumbent Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, wrote on the 1977 FESTAC durbar when he was much younger.

''This history was related to us by our royal Father, the Emir of Zazzau
