movement restrictions in the restive northeast after Boko Haram bombings that killed more than 100 raised fears of fresh attacks over the Eid al-Adha festival. The military said the use of all vehicles would be banned throughout Borno state during the Muslim festival, which is known as Sallah in Nigeria and marked with two days' public holiday from Thursday.
In the spirit of Sallah, the Nigerian Tulip International College (NTIC) Foundation in Ogun on Wednesday distributed raw meat to more than 2,000 less privileged families in Lagos and Ogun states.
Mr Ercan Yilmaz , the Principal of the school, said 60 cows were slaughtered early on Wednesday and distributed to the people.
Yilmaz said 1,500 families from Lagos and Ogun benefitted from the gesture while 500 families from other states in the Southwest also collected their shares.
He said the lists of the beneficiaries were obtained from mosques, churches, while other stakeholders such as religious leaders and public service workers — Police and local government officials also benefitted.
