A major fireworks display will assure in the New Year for the first time in the mainly Muslim north of Nigeria. Around 2,000 people were expected to attend the event in a newly-built sports complex in the city of Kano. Our Africa editor Richard Hamilton reports. “As the New Year is not part of the Muslim calendar, this event is a ground-breaking novelty for northern Nigeria. An extravagance of music, arts, and traditional dancing will precede the countdown to midnight when fireworks were lighted up to the sky. But in view of Boko Haram's campaign of violence across the region, security is tight. The complex is surrounded by a series of checkpoints and cars have to park some distances away. It's been a dark year for northern Nigeria, but its hope the guests and television audience will be able to celebrate the new year as freely as other parts of the world.”
