The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has said Muslim fasting continues on Saturday as the moon has not been sighted.

The National Moonsighting Committee Nigeria, an arm of the NSCIA, on its twitter handle on Friday said fasting continued as the moon had not been sighted yet.

“There was no positive sighting report of the Shawwal crescent in Nigeria, today is 30th Ramadan. An official statement from the Sultanate will be released shortly,” it said.
