    Background: MOSLEMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING THE GREATER BAIRAM, THE MAJOR ISLAMIC FESTIVAL. IN LAGOS, NIGERIAN WORSHIPPERS OF ALLAH JOINED IN WITH THE RITUAL SLAUGHTER OF RAMS.

    THROUGHOUT LAST WEEK, THERE WAS A RUSH TO BUY RAMS IN THE LAGOS MARKET. MONEY CHANGED HANDS RAPIDLY AND FREQUENTLY AS MOSLEMS CELEBRATED THE END OF RAMADAN.

    ON FRIDAY, THE FIRST DAY OF THE TWO-DAY GREATER BAIRAM, THEY GATHERED IN THE MAIN PRAYING GROUND, ABLAZE WITH COLOUR, FOR THE SERVICE AND THEN THE RITUAL SLAUGHTER. THE FLESH OF MANY OF THE RAMS WAS LATER DISTRIBUTED TO THE POOR.
