Nigeria Embassy in Berlin closed for two days to mark Eid-el-Kabir

The Federal Government of Nigeria has declared 12th and 13th September 2016 as Public Holidays to mark the Eid-el-Kabir (Festival of the Sacrifice).


This is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s (God’s) command to sacrifice his son Ishmael. Muslims around the world observe this event.

The Nigeria Embassy in Berlin will therefore be closed to the public on 12th and 13th and will resume normal business on 14th September 2016.

We wish all our Muslim readers a happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
