No fewer than 10 riders fell off their horses during Sallah Durbar at Dutse Emir’s Palace on Friday, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) 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 Emir’s palace.
