Lockdown made everything gloomy’: Ramadan in Nigeria’s Kano

Published

Residents largely restricted to their homes, with mosques shut and festival marking end of Ramadan likely cancelled.
It is 4.42am of day 16 of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and Ismaila Alhassan wakes up by the call to prayer broadcasted by loudspeakers outside.
Rather than heading to his local mosque metres away from his house in Kano, Nigeria’s second-most populous city, the 47-year-old and his four sons walk to their prayer spot inside their home. They will repeat this throughout the day as they perform their five mandatory daily prayers.
