The Niger state Government has suspended the lockdown order to enable residents observe the Juma’at prayer.
Governor Abubakar Sani Bello had imposed a two-week lockdown in the state last week as part of measures to help fight COVID19.
The state has so far recorded two cases of the virus.
In a statement on Friday, Lawal Tanko, an information officer in the office of the secretary to the state government, said the prayers would be held under strict precautionary measures.
